For the third time in as many years, the Seward County Saints close the regular season with a crown after defeating rival Hutchinson Wednesday night on the Greenhouse floor 62-60 to capture their third straight Jayhawk West Conference Championship. In what was a great atmosphere for junior college basketball, Seward and Hutch duked it out on Wednesday. The teams didn’t disappoint anxious onlookers, going blow for blow all night, with neither team leading by more than 8 at any point in the game. Hutch led 29-24 at the half and led much of the second half before Seward took the lead with 1:54 to go. The Saints led 60-56 before four straight Dragon points tied the game at 60 with 11 seconds remaining to set up the drama. Malcolm Hill-Bey drove the length of the court and dished to Leslee Smith who finished at the rim to give Seward the lead with 4.5 seconds left and a last ditch effort by Hutchinson fell short as the Greenhouse crowd erupted in elation as the Saints captured the Jayhawk West title with a 62-60 win.

The second, a much more impressive feat was accomplished after the game when a 79-64 victory gave Seward its 20th win of the season, marking the sixth straight season of 20 or more wins. The sixth straight 20 win season ties a school record established from the 1997-2003 seasons.
