SOUTH HOLLAND | Seton Academy was transformed into Seaton’s Academy on Tuesday night as senior guard Christopher Seaton scored 20 of his team’s first 22 points en route to a 91-67 victory over Gage Park.

Seaton hit 11-of-13 shots  in the first half on his way to a game high 40.

“When it happens, you just go with it,” Seaton said. “I don’t play to score like that, I want to get my team involved, but (Tuesday) my shot was just falling.”

Leading 5-4 early in the first quarter, Seton Academy went on a 32-6 run to blow the game wide open.

“We try to play hard every night,” Seaton said. “We want people to know that Seton Academy is worth watching, and that we haven’t lost our edge.”

The Sting only have two returning players from a squad which made back-to-back trips to the state quarterfinals. Tuesday indicated Seton Academy plans to make it three trips in a row.

“We’re very young and inexperienced this year.” Seton Academy coach Justin Domingo said. “But Coach (Brandon) Thomas built a great program here, but he didn’t leave the cupboard empty. We just try to teach them to stay hungry and humble.”

Although Seaton was the offense in the first quarter, it was a team victory for the Sting (3-2). Ten players found their way onto the score sheet against the Owls (0-3).

After building a 52-26 halftime lead, the Sting never took their foot off the pedal, never letting Gage Park get closer than 21 points.

Sophomore Felix Franklyn had five points and a game high 11 rebounds. Freshman RaShaad Williams came off the bench and dished out six assists and six points.

“We’re trying to approach every game like it’s the most important game of the season," Domingo said. "We want to play hard every game, harder than every team we play from start to finish.”

Domingo wasn’t the only person encouraged by what he saw Tuesday night, Seaton agreed with his new coach.

“The goal is the same: state,” Seaton said. “The young guys are learning that varsity is not a big, scary game, and they can play at this level. If (they) play hard, they can be as good as they want to be and the sky’s the limit.”
