MEN’S BASKETBALL

December 11, 2017 Sports News

The HU men’s basketball team’s two-game win streak came to an end Saturday afternoon compliments of Aquinas College as the Saints handed their hosts an 85-73 loss at Platt Arena.

Huntington’s backcourt handled the bulk of their team’s scoring. Mike Bush took team-high honors with 18 points in addition to handing out seven dimes. Devon Merder and Konner Platt each posted 12 points. Zac Owns finished with nine as the four guards accounted for 51 of HU’s 73 points.

Arsenio Arrington nearly doubled up his season average by pouring in a game-best 29 points to go along with a game-high nine rebounds and six assists to lead the Saints. Rob Deiz and AJ Atwater collected 12 points apiece while TJ Hunter added 11.

Aquinas jumped out to a lead from opening tip and never trailed but the game still saw several swings with Huntington never able to get over the hump. After playing within a handful of possessions of each other for the first 11 minutes, the Saints went into a five-minute scoring frenzy to open up what proved to be the largest gap of the day.

With the score favoring the visitors 24-17, AC scored on seven of their next eight possessions to blow the game wide open at 38-19 four minutes before intermission. The Foresters made up only a few points for a 46-30 difference by the midway point.

Seven minutes into the second period, the Saints still enjoyed a comfortable 60-45 lead but up stepped Bush to spearhead a 13-0 run that saw the Foresters pull within a single possession. The South Bend native scored all but three of his team’s points over the three-minute thrashing for a 60-58 score with just under ten minutes to go.

Much to the chagrin of Platt and crew, the Saints responded with eight quick points to up the lead back to double digits where it stayed most of the way after that for the 12-point final difference.

The Saints shot 52.5 percent (31-for-59) as a team while limiting Huntington to 42.6 percent (23-for-54). HU outscored their visitors 21-14 at the line, both teams committed ten miscues while AC grabbed 34 boards to HU’s 26.

HU heads to the sunshine state next weekend to face Webber International on December 19 and Warner University on December 20 to wrap up the pre-Christmas portion of their schedule.
