Interesting stuff about Seabury Hall's state opener
February 22, 2012 - Robert Collias
Going through my in-box this afternoon and stumbled upon this from Pat Bigold, formerly of the Star-Bulletin, and now of Pat Bigold Media Consulting . . . Very interesting stuff on Seabury Hall's opener in the Division II state boys basketball tournament this week:
If you are covering the Seabury Hall vs. St. Francis game on Thursday, 5 p.m., at Farrington, here is a little background on St. Francis:
The Saints went 11-1 (including a 10-game win streak) in ILH D2. They are in only their second year as a varsity program and have no seniors. Overall, they are 17-5 this year. In two years of varsity play they are 30-10.
Head coach is Sol Batoon, who is also the athletic director. Batoon was an assistant to Merv Lopes when Chaminade upset No. 1 Virginia in 1982.
Tony Randolph, the 6-7 center who posted up against Ralph Sampson and outscored him in that game, is in his first year as an assistant to Batoon. His specialty is with the "big men" and Randolph has tried to teach them to be more aggressive under the glass. It does seem to have worked. They had several wins against D1 teams in preseason.
Leading scorer all season has been Matthew Nuumania, a sophomore. He scored 16 points in the title clincher against Kam II at Kam.
Happy to offer you anything else you need.
