MEN’S BASKETBALL

November 29, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

It was a game where #16 Bethel College never trailed but it was a few minutes just before and after halftime that really seemed to solidify the 85-63 win over the HU men’s basketball team Tuesday night at Platt Arena.

Konner Platt’s triple with 3:27 left in the first period pulled the Foresters within five at 33-28 but Tanner Shepherd, who had the hot hand the entire half, scored seven of the game’s next ten points to send his team into the locker room with a 42-29 advantage.

The Pilots picked up where they left off to start the final stanza by scoring on five of their first seven possessions to grow the lead to 19 at 52-33 by the 16:16 mark. The hosts never got closer than 17 points the rest of the way as BC swelled the lead to as many as 24 before closing out with the 22-point victory.

Shepherd finished with a career-best 25 points, 17 coming in the opening 20 minutes. Gage Ott, this week’s CL Player of the Week, added 17 points. Paul Forman scored all but one of his 13 points in the second half to go along with a game-best 11 rebounds for the double double.

Luke Fisher tallied 15 points off the bench to round out the Pilots’ double digit scoring.

Mike Bush topped the Foresters with 15 points and six assists. Devon Merder and Tyler Arens each tossed in 12 points while Platt registered 11.

It was a single-digit game through the opening ten minutes before a Pilot bucket at the 9:51 mark extended their lead to 11 at 25-14. HU spent the next five minutes organizing their biggest run of the night, an 11-2 spurt, to slice the lead to a single possession at 27-25 with just over five minutes left in the frame.

The run was kicked-off with Bush canning a pair of freebies. Shortly after, Zac Owens drained a triple and then Platt and Arens capped things off by knocking down back-to-back long balls within a 25-second span for the two-point difference. Unfortunately, Bethel countered with a similar run to close out the half for a double-digit advantage that proved permanent.

With this win, Bethel improves to 2-0 in the Crossroads, 9-1 overall, while HU drops to 4-6 overall, 0-2 in league play.

It doesn’t get an easier for Platt’s crew as next up is a clash with #4 Indiana Wesleyan on Saturday at 3:00 p.m.
