2012 PAL Varsity Comp Basketball SEAS versus St. Mary's

Continuing the basketball weekend, the SEAS Eagles played St. Mary's in the second round of the Jesuit Jr. Classic. The Eagles lost to St. Mary's last year in the Christian Brothers Tournament. Cameron plays for St. Mary's. He and Jack played together on the Cal Ripken Laguna All-Stars in 2009.

Jack started at small forward and played 21 minutes of the 28 minute game. He had 15 points on 2 for 4 from 2 point range, 1 for 3 from 3 point range and 8 for 10 from the free throw line. Jack added 11 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 blocks and an assist with 3 turnovers and 3 fouls. Jack and Joe were the high scorers for the Eagles with 15 points each.

For the second night in a row, the Eagles played a hard fought back and forth game. At the end of the first quarter, the score was tied 9 to 9. St. Mary's pulled away in the last two minutes of the second quarter to lead by the score of 26 to 19 at half-time. Cameron killed the Eagles in the first half; he scored 15 of St. Mary's 26 points. St. Mary's maintained a 7 to 9 point lead through most of the third quarter. Then at the end of the third quarter, Joe took an inbound pass with one second on the clock and hit a long three. Early in the fourth quarter, Jack and Malcolm hit threes and all of sudden it was a 2 point game.  In an odd development, Jack pulled down a bushel of defensive rebounds, then kept getting fouled and sent to the free throw line. At one point, Jack hit 8 straight free throws before missing 2 at the very end of game. St. Mary's lack of size and depth hurt them down the stretch. SEAS outscored St. Mary's 20 to 9 in the fourth quarter. Playing the whole game, Cameron managed only 5 points in the second half.

The SEAS Eagles beat the St. Mary's Mustangs by the score of 48 to 43. The box score is here.

The SEAS Eagles now have 3 wins and 0 losses for the season. The game log is here.

With the win on Saturday, the Eagles will be playing at least two more games in the Jesuit Tournament this weekend. SEAS will play St. Ignatius in the semi-finals of the tournament on Sunday.
