WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

January 18, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Forester women’s basketball team cruised to a 59-38 win over Goshen College Wednesday night at Platt Arena. The W completes the series sweep over GC with Huntington’s first win, a 51-44 decision, dating back to November 21.

While it was a game that favored the hosts the entire evening, the start was slow going for both teams as the scoreboard read just 6-5 through the first eight minutes. HU finally pieced together a little spurt in the final two minutes of the quarter which included a long ball from Maddie Richer to give Culler’s crew a slim 13-7 lead after the first break.

The Foresters carried that momentum into the second quarter where Sam Hammel found Cindy In’t Groen for a quick bucket and then Casey Morton buried one from the top of the key to up the lead to 11, 18-7, within the first 45 seconds of the frame. Behind 13 first half points from Sarah Fryman, Culler’s crew took a 34-21 lead into intermission.

It was smooth sailing after that as Huntington’s advantage never dipped below nine points – with a nine-point spread happening just briefly on two occasions early in the third. Hailey Krewald’s second triple of the half at the 7:35 mark of the fourth gave Huntington its largest lead of the night at 55-31 before they cruised to the 21-point win with every Forester getting to see the floor.

Thirty-eight points is the lowest output for the Maple Leafs this season as the Foresters held them to 17 field goals on 28.3 percent shooting. Neither team got to the line much with HU outscoring GC 8-1 from the stripe in a game that took less than 90 minutes to play.

Behind Brooke Saylor’s 14 rebounds, the Foresters monopolized the boards 52-30 which included 21 offensive boards that resulted in 23 second chance points.

Fryman finished with a game-best 20 points as HU’s only double-digit scorer. Richer and Krewald each finished with eight points each. Richer also handed out a game-best four dimes.

Sydney Stein topped Goshen with 13 points, all of which came in the opening 20 minutes.

With this win, the Foresters improve to 12-8 overall, 5-4 in the league while the Maple Leafs (1-20, 0-9) are left still searching for their first conference win. HU hits the road on Saturday to face Mount Vernon for the first time this season. Tip-off is slated for 1:00 p.m.

BOWLING

January 17, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on BOWLING Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

After nearly a two-month break, the Forester bowling teams were back in action over the weekend at the Buckeye Baker Classic. This tournament featured 36 baker games before cutting to the top four for match play where both teams were outstanding.

The HU men brought home the championship while the women’s team claimed a runner-up finish.

“I’m proud of the team,” said Coach Mike Shockey. “The team has a good work ethic in practice and the result of that hard work is paying off at tournaments now. This a really good tournament to start the second half of our season. It is all baker games which is the same format that the USBC Intercollegiate sectional tournament will be in March.”

The Huntington women started the weekend with a bang by finishing with a score of 4,046 pins for 24 baker games on Saturday for second place. On Sunday, the Foresters struggled to maintain their hold and ended up tied with Morehead State for the second spot with a qualifying total of 6,044 pins for 36 baker games. The tiebreaker favored HU as they had the higher single game in qualifying.

Shockey’s crew advanced to match play, a best of three format, where they faced Morehead State in first round action. The Foresters proved they were the better team by sweeping the Eagles, 200-195, 168-150. The W sent HU to the championship match against the 7th-ranked University of Pikeville. The match went all three sets with Huntington falling just short of the victory, 185-178, 171-178, 187-149.

“We have been impressed with the ladies this season,” said Shockey. “They had some early success and they continue to build on that and continue to improve week to week.

“The shot this weekend wasn’t easy and all the teams had to stay focused and not get frustrated with the lack of high scores. We spoke early in the season about being a team that is going to be mentally tough and not give away pins because mental errors. We’re always working on that part of the mental game, but the ladies are doing really well with this part of the game.”

Just like the Huntington women, the men’s squad finished Saturday in 2nd place. The men scored 4,600 pins for their 24 baker games. While things didn’t go quite so smoothly for the Foresters on Sunday as they nearly slipped out of the top four before hanging on for 3rd place with a qualifying score of 6,597, only 14 pins ahead of 5th place, their 3rd place finish was enough to advance to match play.

In first round action, HU topped Toledo in two, 176-162, 207-205. The win propelled the men into the championship match where they faced 12th-ranked University of Pikeville. It was an exciting finishing as each game came down to the 10th frame with the Foresters claiming the title in two, 157-146, 207-202.

“We are happy for the guys to get this win,” said Shockey. “The weekend was a great example of the grit and determination of the men’s team. After a disappointing finish to qualifying, they guys came together and determined that match play was a fresh start and anything can happen.”

The Foresters are back at it this weekend to compete in the Kegel/ISPBA Midwest Collegiate Classic.

MEN’S BASKETBALL

January 17, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Wednesday’s Crossroads League clash was one for the books as Konner Platt drained a triple as time expired in overtime to lift the Huntington men’s basketball team past Goshen College 100-97. It marks the second time this season the Foresters have needed an extra period to claim a win as they snap an eight-game skid and improve to 7-14 overall, 3-6 in league play.

The W tonight avenges a 90-84 loss to the Maple Leafs (10-11, 3-6) earlier this season and is a reminder of how much teams beat up on each within the Crossroads League as HU is one of six teams separated by two or less games with second round action of league play just heating up.

Platt’s game-winner was certainly the high point of the night but the final minute of play leading up to his heroics offered plenty of excitement as well. After back-to-back jumpers by Devin Heath-Granger flipped Goshen’s one-point deficit into a three-point advantage of 97-94 with 43 ticks remaining, Mike Bush was quick to respond.

The senior floor general pulled up a few feet beyond the arc at the top of the key to bury his fifth long ball of the night for the game’s fourth tie with just over 30 seconds to go.

With three seconds separating the game clock from the shot clock, the Maple Leafs were holding for the last shot but Trevor Lockwood played spoiler when he intercepted a pass down low with six ticks remaining. It was off the races after that as Bush pushed the ball up court and found Platt in the corner for his buzzer-beating three.

The overtime period was the only time the scoreboard favored the visitors and their lead proved steady through much of that time as Huntington’s only lead in the extra five minutes came on a pair of freebies by Bush with just over 90 seconds to go and then again when it counted the most – at the buzzer.

However, regulation was a completely different story. Devon Merder and Mason Coverstone teamed up to score Huntington’s first 11 points, nine of which came from downtown, to jet in front of Goshen 11-2. It was a sign of what was to come as HU canned 12 more threes at a clip of 62.5 percent to finish with a season-high 15 three-pointers.

HU would go on to keep the Maple Leafs at a healthy distance the rest of the half, growing their lead to as many as 18 before heading into break with a 13-point advantage of 55-42. It was more of the same to start the second period as Huntington’s lead stretched to 23, 66-43, by the 17:17 mark.

Four minutes later, GC wasn’t able to make up much ground as 19 points still separated the two teams but then began their gradual chipping away at the lead. It was scoring by committee for Goshen, currently ranked 27th in scoring (86 ppg), as several Maple Leafs hit big shots in the final 13 minutes with Billy Geschke putting the finishing touch on the comeback.

The 6-1 guard dropped in a three with just over two minutes to go to trim the lead to two and then scored again, this time in the paint, with eight ticks remaining to send the game to OT. Geschke, who tosses in over 20 points per outing to rank 25th in the NAIA in scoring, finished with 30 points.

Heath-Granger added 24 points and ten assists while Christian Grider and Alhassan Barrie added 17 and 11 points respectively.

Bush topped all scorers with a season-best 32 points to go along with a game-high 14 assists for his sixth double double of the year, second against Goshen. Trevor Lockwood also tallied a double double by posting 15 points and 11 rebounds in addition to swatting three shots. Coverstone registered 21 points which included going 5-for-6 from long range. Merder finished with 15 points to round out HU’s double-digit scoring.

As a team, the Foresters shot 47.8 percent from the field (32-for-67) and 80.8 percent from the line (21-for-26) on their way to hitting the century mark for the first time this season. The Maple Leafs shot similarly by going 37-for-73 from the floor (50.7 percent) and 12-for-15 from the charity stripe (80.0 percent). Huntington hit four more threes than their visitors and scored twice as many points from the free throw line.

HU is back in action on Saturday when they travel to Mount Vernon for a 3:00 p.m. tip-off with the Cougars.
