WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

November 30, 2017 Sports News

The Huntington women’s basketball team stretched its win streak to eight Tuesday night at Platt Arena by outlasting Bethel College 66-52. With this W, HU improves to 8-1 overall, 2-0 in Crossroads action while the Pilots drop to 3-6 on the year, 0-2 in league play.

Credit the Foresters’ defense in the first half for the win. Culler’s crew limited their visitors to just 15 points on 25.9 percent shooting in addition to forcing the Pilots into nine turnovers to enjoy a 28-15 lead heading into intermission.

At the other end of the floor, HU could do no wrong through the first four minutes of play to open up a 13-0 advantage. Erin Mohr was the catalyst as she posted four points in addition to handing out an assist, swiping two steals and corralling a pair of rebounds.

The quarter came and went with HU holding to a ten-point advantage but momentum shifted early in the second as a pesky Pilot squad reeled off the first six points before Sarah Fryman stopped the bleeding when she scored down low with 6:13 on the clock for a 19-13 ballgame.

It was the Hailey Krewald show after that as she intercepted a pass and went coast-to-coast for the easy lay-in at the midway point of the quarter after which she canned a pair of freebies, knocked down a three and then scored again with 11 seconds to go to account for all but two of the half’s final 11 points.

The third quarter started much like the first with HU piecing together an impressive run, this time a 9-0 spurt, to open up a 22-point lead of 37-15 two minutes into the second half. This time it was HU’s bigs, Brooke Saylor and Fryman, who took charge of the offense by teaming up for all nine points.

Twenty-two points was the game’s largest spread as the Pilots continued their pesky ways the rest of the way – reducing the lead to nine on two different occasions.

But the Foresters stayed the course and eventually ensured their win at the free throw where they went 9-for-10 in the final three minutes of play. When all was said and done, the second half was an evenly matched contest as HU outscored BC by just one for the final 14-point spread.

Fryman took top scoring honors for her team by posting 19 points on 7-for-12 shooting. Saylor was the “Jack of all trades” as she finished with 13 points, a career-best 21 rebounds, a career-high six blocks and a team-best four assists. The 5-10 forward’s 21 boards ties a program record for most rebounds in a game that dates back to 1986.

Krewald finished with 12 points in addition to hauling in eight rebounds and swiping two steals. Maddie Richer also tossed in 12 points to round out HU’s double digit scoring.

Kelsey Brickner, who entered the night with just two triples to her name, finished 4-for-6 from downtown on her way to scoring a game-high 20 points for the Pilots. Kamala Glenn added ten points, five assists and three steals.

HU dominated the glass 45-32, which included 13 offensive boards for 15 points. The Foresters also had a good night at the charity stripe where they went 18-for-19 for 94.7 percent.

The Foresters are back in Platt Arena on Saturday to host #23 Indiana Wesleyan at 1:00 p.m.
