Seiser leads Trojans to third straight win with double-double against Janesville

JANESVILLE – Logan Seiser showed why he’s considered one of the top basketball talents in the Iowa Star Conference here Tuesday night, and in doing so he led Northeast Hamilton to a third consecutive victory.

Seiser, a junior forward, knocked down 8 of 11 field goals – he was 3 of 4 from behind the 3-point arc – en route to a monster double-double performance of 24 points and 21 rebounds in a hard-fought 52-45 overtime victory over Janesville.

The Trojans (7-8, 6-7 ISC) avenged a 51-44 loss to the Wildcats on Dec. 4, and in doing so they continued to add confidence.

“We think this is a huge win for us because they’re a solid team and a big rival,” NEH head coach John Seiser said. “Logan had a really good game, and we played very well as a team.”

Janesville (5-13, 4-10 ISC) – losers of three straight – tied the game at 42 in the final five seconds of regulation, but NEH outscored the Wildcats 10-3 in the extra four-minute session.

Noah Ronnfeldt helped Logan Seiser pick up the slack with 13 points and five rebounds. Gabe Rapp drained a pair of 3-point buckets for six points to go along with eight rebounds.

Stephen Chamness added nine points in the win.

Chris Bright powered Janesville with 20 points. Hunter Meyer chipped in nine and Joe Friedrich finished with seven.

John Seiser is hopeful the victory will give his team energy leading into tonight’s road contest at Dunkerton.

“We played well on the road (on Tuesday), and it was by far our best performance of the season,” he said.
