Seaman’s boys basketball team continued its late-season surge Friday night at Emporia, riding a solid defensive effort to a 48-32 Centennial League win, the Vikings’ sixth straight win.

Seaman, which improved to 12-8 overall and 10-6 in the league, trailed 13-12 after the opening quarter, but the Vikings outscored the Spartans 13-3 in the second quarter to take a 24-16 halftime advantage and held a 23-16 scoring edge the rest of the way.

Seaman and Emporia (8-12, 4-12) will hook up again Wednesday at Seaman in a first-round Class 5A sub-state contest.

Junior Ty Henry scored 15 points to lead the Vikings while Mateo Hyman, Caden Stallbaumer and Aron Davis added 8 points apiece.

Senior Charles Snyder scored a game-high 17 points for Emporia.


Washburn Rural Joe Berry eclipsed the 1,000-point scoring milestone for his career with a 14-point night and senior Jack Hutchinson added 12 as the Junior Blues avenged an earlier loss to Highland Park, 58-43.
