YONGSAN GARRISON, South Korea – After getting off to a poor start in the final season of Seoul American basketball, the Falcons girls team is showing signs of life, having won four of its last five games.

And it couldn’t come at a better time, with the Korean-American Interscholastic Activities Conference season-ending Plate Tournament coming up this weekend at Chadwick International School in Incheon.

The Falcons take a 5-7 record into the Plate Tournament, for teams with sub-.500 records across KAIAC’s three divisions. Seoul American has the No. 1 seed, a first-round bye and plays the winner of International Christian-Uijongbu vs. Dwight School of Seoul at 1 p.m. Friday.

Seoul American’s most recent win in that five-game run came Wednesday in the regular-season finale - a 57-30 pounding of Taejon Christian - in which Mya Rolison, a sophomore transfer, had her lone triple-double of the season, 12 points, 11 rebounds, 10 steals.
