The St. ELizabeth Ann Seton Eagles played their fourth league game against the St. Roberts Rebels. St. Roberts has a large team of 15 fifth and six graders with one big player and a skilled backcourt player. The backcourt player has the tendency to put his head down and drive to the basket.
On the strength of 4 points each by Jack and Joe, the Eagles ran out to a 14 to 6 first quarter lead and never looked back. Jack went 2 for 2 in the first quarter, while Joe went 2 for 3.
The final score was SEAS 36, St. Roberts 25. The score box is here and the season game log is here.
Jack had 7 points on 3 for 7 from the field and 1 for 2 from the free throw line. He added 3 rebounds. Aidan started at center for only the second game this season and had 13 rebounds.
Jack and I were listening to a Bill Simmon's podcast on the way to the game that talked about how Shaq had a mental block about free throws. Jack said that this was playing in his head when he got to the line. Nevertheless, he made the second free throw; his first made free throw of the year.
