MEN’S BASKETBALL

November 20, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

After enjoying as much as an eight-point lead in the second half, the HU men’s basketball team couldn’t hang on as Clarke University outlasted the Foresters 87-79 on Friday afternoon of the Grace College Terry Polston Hoops for Hope Classic.

Andrew Yoder gave Huntington the eight-point lead, its largest advantage of the day, when he drained his fifth triple at the 14:32 mark of the final stanza for a 55-47 advantage. Unfortunately, the Foresters got stuck on 55 for the next three minutes to which the Crusaders made them pay by reeling off 11 points to seize the lead at 58-55.

Clarke gradually pulled away after that, extending the lead to seven by the midway point and pushing it to 13, 79-66, with four minutes remaining. The Foresters made one final push behind seven points from Mike Bush to slice the lead to six at 83-77 with 45 ticks remaining but the Crusaders relied on the free throw line to keep their distance until the clock expired.

The first half was back and forth, featuring three ties and four lead changes with HU holding the upper hand to close out period. With the score knotted at 35s with just over a minute left, Yoder dropped in a three and Trevor Lockwood converted a pair of freebies for a 40-35 HU advantage heading into intermission.

Clarke’s Ernest Bolden came out of the locker room on a mission to pour in eight of his game-high 22 points within the opening two minutes of the second frame to give his team a 43-40 lead.

But it didn’t take HU long to counter as they made good on their next three possessions – a pair of free tosses by Mason Coverstone and two long balls, first from Tyler Arens and then another by Yoder – on their way to building the aforementioned eight-point lead that the Crusaders quickly erased on their way to the eight-point W.

After connecting on 48.5 percent of their shots through the opening 20 minutes (16-for-33), the Foresters cooled off in the second period to finish 40.9 percent for the game (27-for-66). HU committed 13 turnovers to Clarke’s 15 while the Crusaders out-battled Huntington on the glass 45-35.

Yoder finished with a team-best 20 points. Tyler Arens finished with 18 points and three blocks. Bush added 16 points and handed out eight dimes while Devon Merder logged the game’s only double double with 11 points and ten boards.

The Crusaders capitalized on 48.5 percent of their shots by going 33-for-68 from the field which included knocking down ten of their 22 three-pointers. In addition to Bolden’s 22 points, Jazz Bajwa, Tyler Meier and Haris Takes each tossed in 15 points while Pindo Drammeh threw in ten.

With this loss, Huntington drops to 3-4 on the year. They head back to Grace tomorrow to face Grace Bible College at noon.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

After a slow start, the Huntington women’s basketball ran away with a 78-40 win over Wright State University Lake (0-6) Friday night of their own tournament. With this win, the Foresters (5-1) extend their win streak to five and advance to the championship game of the tourney where they will take on IU Southeast at 3:00 p.m.

After putting up just nine points through the opening ten minutes, HU more than doubled that in the first three minutes of the second quarter.

Cindy In’t Groen made sure her team trended in the right direction by scoring within the opening ten seconds of the quarter after which Sam Hammel drained a three followed by two more from Maddie Richer to turn Huntington’s 10-9 deficit into a 20-12 advantage by the 6:43 mark.

Culler’s crew never looked back after that to grow the lead to 19, 34-15, by halftime. The gap widened to 33 after three quarters of play and finished as a 38-point difference, HU’s largest margin of victory so far this season.

Everyone saw action with ten different Foresters putting points on the board. It was a balanced attack with several individual performances highlighting the night. Richer finished with 12 points, all from deep, while dishing out a career-tying six assists.

Brooke Yoder came off the bench to toss in 11 points, which included scoring three buckets within a 75-second burst in the third quarter. Brooke Saylor also had an impressive third quarter by posting two old-fashioned three-point plays on her way to scoring ten points. She also hauled in a season-high 14 rebounds, six offensive, for her third double double of the year.

Freshman Alex Bope, in the first significant minutes of her young Forester career, erupted for ten points in the fourth quarter to round out HU’s double digit scoring. Hailey Krewald did a little bit of everything for Huntington to register eight points, four steals, three assists and three rebounds. Hammel put up nine points to go along with three steals and two assists.

HU finished 28-for-62 from the floor for 45.2 percent and 14-for-17 from the line for 82.4 percent. They crushed their visitors on the boards 44-24 which included 17 offensive rebounds for 23 second chance points. They also scored 22 points off 21 Laker turnovers.

Onyx Lopez led Wright State with a game-best 16 points while Nicole Fogt added 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Tonight was the first time these two programs have met during Coach Culler’s 32-year tenure.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Junior Brooke Saylor had one of the best games of her career to lead the Forester women’s basketball team to a 61-41 victory over IU Southeast in the championship game of the HU Tournament on Saturday at Platt Arena.

The 5-10 forward did a little bit of everything for her team by posting 16 points, 16 rebounds, four blocks and three assists which made her the easy pick as the tournament MVP.

IU Southeast entered the afternoon averaging nearly 85 points but the Foresters weren’t having it as they held their visitors to half that by limiting the Grenadiers to just 13 field goals on 23.2 percent shooting and forcing 15 turnovers. 41 points is IUSE’s lowest output since November of 2008 when they lost to Lindsey Wilson 53-40.

Offense didn’t come particularly easy for Huntington either as they scored 15 points below their season average but Culler’s crew still managed to hold a lead for all but two ties throughout the 40-minute contest. The game’s only two deadlocks came within two minutes of each other – at the end of the first quarter and start of the second.

Baylee Kreuger’s quick score to open the second forced an 11-11 tie but back-to-back buckets by Cindy In’t Groen gave HU a permanent lead of 15-11 at the 8:04 mark. The Foresters would go on to manufacture an 8-0 run at the end of the quarter, four by Sam Hammel in the last minute of play, to take a 31-21 halftime lead.

The Grenadiers chopped the lead to six at 34-28 four minutes into the third quarter but would get no closer compliments of six straight points by Saylor to push the lead back to double digits where it would stay the rest of the way.

The lead stood at 12 points after three quarters and only swelled after that. It was déjà vu from the second quarter as IUSE scored on the opening possession of the fourth after which In’t Groen scored twice, this time on back-to-back dump downs from Casey Morton, for a 48-34 Huntington advantage. The Grenadiers managed just seven points after that while HU continued to roll to blow the game wide open by the final buzzer.

In addition to Saylor’s 16 points, Sarah Fryman added ten points to go along with three assists and two steals. Hailey Krewald also chipped in ten points while collecting five rebounds and two steals. Hammel rounded out HU’s double digit scoring with ten points as well.

As a team, Culler’s crew shot 46.6 percent from the field (27-for-58). They secured 44 rebounds, 12 offensive which led to 16 second chance points, to IUSE’s 34.

The Foresters have won five of the seven times they’ve done battle with the Grenadiers under Culler’s leadership.

HU (6-1) will take their six-game win streak into their conference opener on Tuesday at Goshen.

Junior Tyler Arens drained two quick threes in overtime to will the Forester men’s basketball team to a 79-71 win over Grace Bible College Saturday afternoon of the Grace College Terry Polston Hoops for Hope Classic.

Arens’ back-to-back long balls came 90 seconds into the extra period to turn HU’s one-point disadvantage into a 72-67 lead. Andrew Yoder and Konner Platt each scored after that to keep a two-possession advantage that the Foresters were able to then ride out for the win as Platt’s crew iced the game at the free throw line.

Arens’ heroics along with his play throughout the weekend landed him a spot on the All-Tournament Team.

Saturday was a game of spurts with Huntington ultimately having the final say. The Tigers enjoyed the lead, by as many as seven points, through the opening nine minutes before it toggled back and forth for a few minutes with Grace Bible on top 23-22 at the 7:25 mark of the first half.

Over the next four minutes, Huntington erupted for 13 points, nine of those points coming from long range, to take the game’s first double-digit lead of 35-25 with three minutes to go in the half. The common denominator during HU’s run was its playmaker Mike Bush. The 5-7 senior scored once while assisting the other four buckets as the Foresters went on to take a 39-30 lead into the locker room.

Bush finished the frame with nine points and just as many assists to carry HU offensively through the first twenty minutes.

Huntington’s lead slowly evaporated in the second half as the Tigers knotted things up at 46-46 by the 13:32 mark and then surged ahead by one, 50-49, 90 seconds later. Yoder drilled a three, Huntington’s third of the half and ninth of the game, at the midway point of the period to give his team a brief two-point tilt before GBC reclaimed it.

Huntington would take the lead one more time in regulation as they trailed the rest of the way until Konner Platt found the bottom of the net on a long ball with 19 ticks remaining to deadlock things at 65-65 and extend the game to overtime where Arens stepped up to score seven of his team-leading 18 points for the W.

Arens was one of three Foresters to log seven rebounds with Devon Merder and Trevor Lockwood being the other two. Merder also chipped in ten points as did Bush who handed out 14 assists as well. Yoder and Konner Platt added 13 points apiece.

Thirteen of Huntington’s 30 field goals were from deep which proved to be the difference in the game as the Tigers also finished with 30 field goals but connected on just seven beyond the arc. Neither team shot the ball particularly well from the charity stripe, with both shooting under 50.0 percent, as HU managed just six points from the line, three coming at the end of OT, to GBC’s four.

Brandon Winchester-Jones topped the Tigers with 19 points and four assists. Adam Rayner tossed in 15 while Grant Garrison and Adam Kregel each added 12.

With this win, HU evens up their record at 4-4. Platt’s crew now turns their attention to league play where they open up at Goshen on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m.
