- Seneca started the game and the 4th quarter off really slow. Will need to fix that if they want to make the 7th region tournament or the L.I.T.
- Jeonta Samuels is one of Seneca's best players, but he is currently serving an indefinite suspension. Will he return before the end of the year?
- Coach Schooler has his team playing extremely hard. If they can keep up that energy don't be surprised to see the Tigers shock some people come tournament time.
