December 6 vs. Brownstown Central: Down by as many as 17 points, the first 3 quarters of the rivalry were tough for Seymour. The fourth quarter, however, could not have been more different. With 10 seconds to go senior Eric McCoy hit a 3 pointer to knot the game at 40 and send the game to overtime. Unfortunately for the Owls, Brownstown senior Isaiah Wineinger scored 5 out of their 6 overtime points to finish the Owls off once and for all. Eric McCoy led the scoring with 22 points.

December 7 at Franklin Community: It ended 52-55 in Franklin’s favor, but this could be seen as an unfair  scoreline from the Owls’ point of view.
