ball most the game… losing by a score of 62-38.

With a dismal start for the Indians… as he Cardinals went on a 19-0 run in first eight minutes of play. The Indians were finally able to get some points on the board in the second quarter, but trailed Seton 35-11 at halftime.

“That 19 point deficit to start the game was a huge hole for us to try and dig ourselves out of… especially against a talented team like Seton Catholic,” UC Head Coach Dustin Baldwin said in a post game interview with The Early Bird. “I called a timeout early to kind of weather the storm a little bit.”

The Cardinals kept the pressure and the points coming in the second half behind the scoring of senior guard Desmond Bane and junior Billie Webster.

“Their (Seton’s) pressure really got to us, ” Coach added. “I thought we had some good outside looks, but just couldn’t get the basket.”
