November 13, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Hot shooting catapulted the HU women’s basketball team to a 79-69 win over Judson University Saturday afternoon at Lindner Fitness Center The win is Huntington’s fourth straight as Culler’s crew improves to 4-1 on the season.

The Foresters sizzled the nets to the tune of 58.7 percent (27-for-46) which included knocking down five of their 11 attempts from deep to shoot their way to a win in the Eagles’ home opener. While the visitors missed just seven shots in the final twenty minutes, their real bread and butter came at the line where they closed out the game with 11 straight to cruise to the win.

As a team, HU finished 20-for-27 from the charity stripe for 74.1 percent. The Eagles shot an even higher percentage, 18-for-21, but the Foresters’ stingy defense limited the hosts to just 36.1 percent from the field.

The Foresters played like they had just gotten off a three-and-a-half hour bus ride to open the game as Judson sprinted out to an 11-4 lead but Maddie Richer’s triple at the 6:45 mark finally brought some pep into HU’s step. It ignited a 10-2 run which included another long ball by Brooke Yoder for Huntington’s first advantage of 14-13 with just over three minutes left in the quarter.

While Huntington trailed at the first break, 20-16, a quick layup and three by Sam Hammel to start the second put HU back on top 21-20. It was the Sarah Fryman show the rest of the half as the 5-9 forward was a perfect 5-for-5 from the field and cashed in on all three of her freebies to pour in 14 points in the quarter to give her team a 45-38 advantage by the midway point.

The Eagles would pull within six in the third stanza but would get no closer the rest of the way as HU relied on balanced scoring and their free throw fest to close out the game for their third straight double-digit win.

Hammel established a new career high in her young Forester career with a game-best 21 points which included going 8-for-11 from the line. The 5-7 guard also bested the contest with six assists and four steals.

Fryman added 20 points while Brooke Saylor finished with 15. They each corralled four rebounds to lead HU on the glass. Richer tallied 13 points to go along with four assists and two steals to round out HU’s solid offensive outing.

Starlette Keen paced Judson with 19 points. Jayla Barrett and Emylyn Wright finished with 15 and 11 respectively while Maggie Mahar came off the bench to toss in 11.

The Foresters have the week off until their tournament when they square-off with Wright State University Lake on Friday at 8:00 p.m.

The HU men’s basketball team outlasted IU Northwest on opening night of the Ness Bros. Hall of Fame Tournament, 99-92, to advance to the championship game on Saturday where they will face Trinity International University at 3:00 p.m.

The Foresters have advanced to the championship game of this annual tourney every year of Coach Platt’s ten-year coaching career.

Huntington could do no wrong through the opening two-and-a-half minutes as they sprinted out to a 13-2 advantage with three different Foresters canning long balls to fire up an energetic home crowd. While Coach Platt’s crew cooled off after that, they still maintained a 13-point advantage of 25-12, the largest spread of the game, with 11 minutes left in the half.

However, a scoring drought ensued and the RedHawks took full advantage to draw the game’s first tie at 25s with just under eight minutes on the clock. It was the first of 12 ties and the start of 12 lead changes that were mainly contained in the next seven minutes.

Jovan Jackson’s freebie with 55 ticks left in the first half forced the 11th tie after which Mike Bush cashed in on two free throws and Kyle Platt drilled a three at the buzzer to give Huntington a 54-49 advantage at the halfway point.

Minus one possession at the midway point of the second stanza and a stalemate with six minutes remaining, the back-and-forth play was over as HU held a lead over their visitors for all but those few seconds to punch their ticket to the championship game.

While Huntington remained in control, IU Northwest stayed within striking distance as an eight-point spread was the biggest gap of the final twenty minutes. Several Foresters stepped up at different times to prevent any sort of heroic comeback by their visitors with the play of Tyler Arens highlighting the period.

After scoring 11 points through the opening twenty minutes, the 6-8 forward poured in 17 in the second half to finished with a game-best 28 points. He also collected 11 rebounds for the double double to go along with two blocks and two assists.

Mike Bush and Trevor Lockwood also did their part in the final frame to ensure the W. Each posted nine points in addition to Bush handing out five assists and Lockwood pulling down three of his team’s ten second half offensive rebounds.

Bush recorded 27 points and nine assists on the night while Lockwood added 11 points and six boards.

Rashad Richardson finished with 22 points as one of four RedHawks in double digits. Other scorers for IUNW included James Nabors with 15, Chris Dixson-Williams with 12 and Armoni Shorter with 11.

Both teams shot the ball similarly with HU connecting on 43.8 percent of their shots (32-for-73) while IU Northwest knocked down 44.7 percent of their attempts (34-for-76). Each squad drained 11 three-pointers but the discrepancy came at the charity stripe where Huntington went 24-for-32 while the RedHawks managed to go 13-for-19.

The Foresters won the battle of the boards 52-40 which included grabbing 19 offensive rebounds to the tune of 17 second chance points but the RedHawks committed fewer errors to finish with ten turnovers to HU’s 15.

With tonight’s win, Platt’s crew improves to 2-2 on the year while IU Northwest drops to 2-3.


November 13, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Trinity International University’s big push in the final five minutes of play was enough to earn a 90-77 win and be deemed the 2017 Ness Bros. Hall of Fame Tournament Champions over the Forester men’s basketball team Saturday afternoon at Platt Arena.

With just two points separating the two teams, 75-73 advantage Trojans, with 4:36 on the clock, everything fell into place for the visitors as they cashed in on seven of their last ten possessions to enjoy a 15-4 run that made for the 13-point disparity by the final horn.

The end result was not indicative of the first 35 minutes of the game as the Foresters were the aggressors through the opening 20 minutes and into the second half. After jumping out to a 15-5 advantage behind eight points from Andrew Yoder, HU gave up the lead for a handful of possessions before closing out the frame on an 8-0 run for a 43-36 lead by intermission.

Scoring was a shared responsibility for HU in the first half as evidenced by eight Foresters finding their way into the scoring column and 15 of their 18 field goals assisted.

Huntington’s seven-point tilt was quickly erased to start the second half as the Trojans rattled off 11 straight points to seize the lead at 47-46. Five quick points from Mike Bush turned things back around for HU. Konner Platt’s bucket at the 14:34 mark grew Huntington’s lead to six at 55-49 but it proved to be a short-lived advantage as just over 60 seconds later the Trojans pushed in front 56-55 with 13 minutes to go.

HU would take the lead one more time and force the game’s third tie before Trinity International claimed a permanent advantage. That advantage stayed within two possessions for all but one trip up and down the floor for the next seven minutes until TIU’s near perfect final five minutes of play.

Tyrone Carey was Trinity’s main stay offensively as he topped all scorers with 31 points which included scoring five points in the final minute of play and not surprisingly, was voted the tournament MVP. He had plenty of help from brothers Greg and Jeremy Carlyle who scored 15 and 13 points respectively with each adding four points in the Trojans’ final spurt. Greg Carlyle also handed out a team-best six assists.

Thadeous Johnson logged his team’s only double double with ten points and a game-tying ten rebounds. O’Shae Williams, voted to the All-Tournament Team, added ten points to round out Trinity’s double digit scoring.  As a team, the Trojans shot 46.9 percent (30-for-64) from the field which included 13 three-pointers while connecting on 11 of their 16 free throws.

Bush led a balanced Forester attack with 14 points and a game-best nine assists. Konner Platt finished with 13 points with nine coming from long range. Yoder established a new career high of 12 points.  Tyler Arens also tossed in 12 to go along with a game-tying ten boards for his third double double of the year.

Bush and Arens were both named to the All-Tournament Team.

The Foresters finished 30-for-64 from the field for 46.9 percent. One-third of their field goals were long balls while they scored seven points from the charity stripe. Rebounds were a wash as both teams snagged 36 but the Trojans committed just 11 turnovers to HU’s 17.

HU (2-3) is back in action on Tuesday with their first road trip of the year to Wright State University Lake for a 7:00 p.m. tip-off with the Lakers.
