Ant’Treasia Patton’s ten-footer bounced around the rim before dropping through the cylinder at the buzzer to lift Cumberland University (9-4) past the HU women’s basketball team Saturday afternoon at Dallas Floyd Gymnasium. The loss sends the Foresters into Christmas break with a 9-4 record.

Poor shooting and turnovers haunted Culler’s crew as they managed just 37.0 percent shooting from the field (17-for-46) and coughed up the ball 20 times. The Phoenix posted similar numbers as they turned in a 36.2 percent shooting performance while logging 19 miscues to make for a contest that came down to the wire.

The visitors took a 44-42 advantage into the fourth and things looked promising as Hailey Krewald dropped in her fourth triple to start the quarter after which Brooke Saylor scored on a put back less than 60 seconds later to push the lead to seven at 49-42 with just over eight minutes remaining.

Unfortunately, Sarah Fryman’s freebies with just over two minutes to go proved to be HU’s final points of the ball game. The six-minute scoring drought allowed CU to climb right back in it, tying it up at 49s by the midway point and then again 30 seconds after Fryman’s free tosses before Patton’s heroics at the buzzer sent the handful of Cumberland fans into a frenzy.

Aside from the start of the fourth, the third quarter was Huntington’s only other bright spot. After scoring just 22 points through the first twenty minutes for a 27-22 halftime deficit, the Foresters doubled their offensive output in the next ten minutes by going 7-for-12 from the field, three of which were from long range, while canning five of their six free throws.

Krewald, Casey Morton and Saylor accounted for all but two of their team’s 22 points in the third. Krewald scored five of her team-high 16 points in third. Morton finished with ten, eight of which came in the third, while Saylor added 12 with all but five of those points also coming in the third.

Saylor grabbed a team-best 12 rebounds and handed out two assists and swiped two steals. Krewald tracked down seven boards and handed out three dimes.

Patton enjoyed game-high scoring honors with 17 points. Micah Norris was the only other Phoenix to finish in double digits by tossing in 11 points.

Rebounding was a lopsided affair with the hosts snagging 41, 16 of which were offensive, to HU’s 29. Kaitlin Oliver corralled 14 caroms, seven at each end of the floor, to register game-high rebounding honors.

HU has nearly a two-week break before returning to the friendly confines of Platt Arena to host IU East on December 28 and Cincinnati Christian on December 29.
