Offense was not a strong point for the Seymour Eagle basketball team last Tuesday night. The Eagles could only manage 27 points the entire game at home as they were defeated 67-27 by the Morristown West Trojans.
The Trojans who are one of the strongest teams in District 2-AAA with a record of 19-4 and 8-2 totally shut the Eagles down on offense and also piled up the points offensively. If it had been a fight it would have been stopped early. The Eagles just weren’t in the game from the get go.
At the end of the first quarter Morristown West led 24-6 scoring almost as many points in the first quarter as Seymour did the entire game.
At halftime the Trojans increased their lead to 37-13.
The Trojans expanded their lead even more in the third quarter leading 48-22 going into the fourth quarter. Seymour managed only five points in the last period.
The Eagles were led in scoring by Colin McGurk with six followed by Zach Wicker with four.
Morristown West was led in scoring by Makai Olden with 22 followed by Jamal Spradling with 12 and Jeremiah Anderson with nine.
