MEN’S BASKETBALL

November 22, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The intensity ratchets up come conference time and Tuesday’s Crossroads League opener at Gunden Gymnasium was no exception as Goshen College (5-3, 1-0) battled to a 90-84 win over the Huntington men’s basketball team.

The first half especially was a knock-down, drag-out fight as evidenced by both teams getting into the double bonus and the lead changing hands ten times before the Maple Leafs took a 50-46 lead into intermission.

No more than seven points separated the two teams through the opening 20 minutes with that spread proving to be the Foresters’ largest lead of the game. Their first seven-point advantage came with just under seven minutes to go in the half when Konner Platt scored on a put back for a 27-20 advantage with the second coming 60 seconds later after the teams traded makes.

The tides turned over the next two minutes as Goshen pieced together a 10-2 run for a 32-31 lead at the 3:57 mark. Shortly after, back-to-back buckets by Tyler Arens and Devon Merder sandwiched a Goshen field goal to give the Foresters two brief one-point advantages. The Maple Leafs would go on lay claim to the lead the rest of the frame and the first five minutes of the second half but the Foresters still had plenty of fight left.

Trailing 55-50 at the 16:47 mark of the final period, HU scored on three straight possessions for a 7-0 run that put them back on top by two points with 15 minutes to go. Goshen instantly countered by rattling off the next 12 points for the game’s first double-digit difference of 67-57. It was a six-minute dry spell for the visitors but they still weren’t ready to throw in the towel.

Instead, they chipped away at the deficit, trimming it to a single possession when Merder drilled one from long range with just over four minutes remaining to pull his team within three at 77-74. Ninety seconds later, Arens converted a traditional three-point play to make it a two-point difference at 79-77.

It remained a two-point game with just over a minute to go until Devin Heath-Granger buried his only triple of the game with 54 ticks to go to put GC on top by five. So began the march to the free line after that as the Maple Leafs went a perfect 6-for-6 to seal the win.

Mason Coverstone came off the bench to top Huntington with 18 points on 8-for-12 shooting. Merder and Mike Bush each tossed in 15 points. Bush also handed out a game-best 11 dimes and swiped a game-high four steals. Arens added 11 points while corralling a game-high 13 rebounds for his fifth double double of the year. Platt rounded out HU’s double digit scoring with ten points to go along with six rebounds and four assists.

Goshen’s leading scorer, Conner Funkhouser, came off the bench as well to pour in a game-best 19 points. Christian Grider posted 18 points while Billy Geschke and Patryck Ostrowski added 13 and 11 points respectively.

With this loss, Huntington heads into Thanksgiving break 4-5 on the year, 0-1 in league play. Platt’s crew is off for a week before hosting Bethel on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

November 22, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The turkey and stuffing will be that much better this year for the Forester women’s basketball team as they head into Thanksgiving break riding a seven-game win streak after squeaking past Goshen College (1-7, 0-1) Tuesday night at Gunden Gymnasium 51-44 on opening night of league play.

It wasn’t one of HU’s best outings of the season but composure was once again key for Culler’s crew. After trailing for all but a handful of possessions through the first 36 minutes, the Foresters finally took a lead that lasted, 47-44, with 3:31 to go.

Huntington managed just two triples on the night but both came at critical times in the fourth. The first, a bomb in the corner by Maddie Richer, snapped a Goshen 7-0 run midway through the frame to force the game’s fifth deadlock.

The second long ball proved to be the game-winner as it gave Huntington its permanent lead. After causing Goshen to cough up the ball for the 20th time, Richer found Hailey Krewald spotted up at the top of the key for the 47-44 go ahead.

Sarah Fryman then scored the game’s final four points to secure her team’s first conference win. Those four points capped off an 11-point fourth quarter performance by the 5-9 forward who certainly would have been voted MVP of the comeback if such an award existed.

Defense has been key to Huntington’s success this season and tonight was no different as they held their hosts scoreless the final four minutes. The Foresters have limited their opponents to 14 points or less per quarter for 12 consecutive quarters, giving up an average of 41.7 points over those three games.

On this particular night, HU allowed just 16 field goals on 32.0 percent shooting. They also forced 22 Maple Leaf turnovers for 15 points at the other end of the floor.

Offense, on the other hand, did not come so easy for Huntington. Their first lead of the contest came with two minutes left in the third when Brooke Saylor scored down low for a 31-29 advantage, as the visitors would just as soon forget those first 28 minutes. They went on to enjoy the lead the rest of the quarter and beginning of the fourth and then turned the lead back over to Goshen before finally taking charge in the waning minutes when it mattered most.

Fryman finished with 16 points for HU. Saylor posted her third straight double double with 11 points and game-best 12 boards. Sam Hammel and Cindy In’t Groen each added seven points while Richer finished with five points and dished out a game-best four assists.

Carley O’Neal was the only Goshen starter to finish in double digits with 11 points while Donnae Lipinski and Claire Rauck came off the bench to add ten and nine points respectively. Keyaira Murff topped her team in rebounds with 11 to go along with three steals and a block. Murff currently ranks 16th in the NAIA in total blocks with 12.

HU (7-1, 1-0) now has a break until November 29 when they host Bethel at 7:00 p.m.

Chapel for December 7th

November 21, 2017 General Comments Off on Chapel for December 7th Posted By: Myra Vance

Hello Everyone!
My name is Myra Vance and I am a senior Youth Ministry and Mission’s major here at HU. I am very excited for staff and faculty to be a part of this chapel happening on December 7th. I had this idea earlier in the semester to have a girl’s chapel and a guy’s chapel separately. I talked with Arthur a couple of weeks ago about the idea and he approved the idea.
So technically there will be 3 chapels going on all at once. There will be all the girls in the MCA led by Jessica Hatcher. The Junior and Senior guys will be led by Dr. Eilers. Then Freshmen and Sophomore guys will be led by Mark Vincenti in the room next to the recital hall. I wanted to extend the invite to all faculty and staff to be present at this chapel, I think it would be super powerful to have different faculty and staff present at each of the chapels.
My heart behind the chapel is to talk about different struggles that woman and men have in life, and sometimes that is difficult to talk about when we are all in one chapel. So we are creating space for the Lord to work with the women and the men here at Huntington University. If you are unable to attend, I would challenge you to be praying for the Lord to come and speak. I think this is going to be very impactful and powerful.
Just want to say thank you to each of you and all the hard work you have put into my life, and also lives of many others.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to shoot me an email at vancem@huntington.edu
Blessings,
Myra Vance

Holiday Travel Tips

November 20, 2017 General Comments Off on Holiday Travel Tips Posted By: Chief Justin Faw

The Thanksgiving Holiday is the most heavily traveled holiday in the United States. Millions of people will hit the highway and we want to offer you some quick safety tips as you depart from HU so that you reach your destination safely. Please remember that driver inattention is the number one cause of vehicle crashes. Do not text and drive, keep your eyes on the road, if you are a passenger do not distract the driver, and always buckle up your seat belt. It is also a good idea to have a full tank of gas and a blanket or two in the car as the weather is starting to get colder. The Huntington University Police Department wishes each of you a happy holiday and safe travels.
