MEN’S BASKETBALL

January 15, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Despite holding their visitors 23 points below their season average, the Forester men’s basketball team still came up short, 69-56, to Marian University Saturday afternoon at Platt Arena.

The Knights entered the contest ranked 9th in the NAIA in scoring with their 92-point average and while HU was able to hold them to their second lowest point total of the season, Platt’s crew struggled at the other end of the floor playing without their leading scorer in Tyler Arens.

Huntington shot 36.7 percent from the field (22-for-60) which included going 3-for-17 from deep with two players finishing in double digits. Trevor Lockwood paced his team with 20 points and three blocks while Konner Platt added 12 points. Devon Merder grabbed 12 rebounds and dished out four assists to lead HU in both categories.

Reggie Kissoonlal, standing at 6-11, poured in 19 points and corralled 13 rebounds for Marian for his second double double of the year. Wes Stowers recorded 16 points and a game-best eight assists. Sterling Brown chipped in ten points.

Marian dropped in 37.5 percent of their shots (27-for-72) and outscored their hosts 21-9 behind the arc. They outrebounded HU 53-35.

The Foresters got off to a great start with each starter scoring within the first six minutes to open up a ten-point advantage of 16-6.

Unfortunately, the Knights spent the next four minutes posting ten unanswered points for the game’s third tie at 16-16. HU would regain the lead at 20-16 on back-to-back buckets by Lockwood but another visitor push forced the fourth and final tie at 20s at the 7:39 mark en route to a 31-28 Marian lead heading into the break.

Lockwood scored down low within the first 15 seconds of the second period to reduce the lead to just one but seven straight points by Marian upped the lead to eight at 38-30 after which Mason Coverstone dropped in a three and two minutes later scored again on a put back to cut the lead to two possessions each time.

But it was all Marian after that as HU didn’t have an answer for Kissoonlal who scored seven of his team’s next nine points to give MU its largest lead of the day up to that point at 50-37 with just under 12 minutes to go. The lead remained in double digits for all but 45 seconds the rest of the way to make for a relatively quiet finish.

The Knights, one of the hottest teams in the league right now, have won six of their last seven outings to improve to 14-6 overall, 4-4 in league play.

The Foresters (6-14, 2-6) will look to snap their eight-game losing skid on Tuesday when they host Goshen at 7:00 p.m. in second round action of league play.

Hotel Amenities: The collection has begun!

January 12, 2018 General Comments Off on Hotel Amenities: The collection has begun! Posted By: Jack Heller

Colleagues:
Last year, students on the Civil Rights J-term trip collected the free hotel amenities and contributed them to Place of Grace, a local ministry for women rebuilding their lives. This year, Place of Grace currently has enough amenities. However, in February I can bring hotel amenities to incarcerated women when I go to visit the Logan Correctional Complex in Illinois. (I will be doing a workshop on the Indiana poet Mari Evans there.) I can bring soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and coffee packs. If you want to spend a few bucks on trial size toothpastes, I can take those too. I am checking on tea packets and the coffee condiments. I can not bring amenities packaged in glass, aerosols, floss, mouthwash, and the pens–though I am willing to collect these for another place if you know where they can be used.

Please encourage your students to collect these for the women in the Logan prison during your j-term trips, and please collect these in your own travels during January. If we pack our own amenities for our travels in January, we can get a number of free amenities in just a few days of J-term trips. I am willing to collect these in my office until my trip to Logan. Your help with this will be greatly appreciated.

The collection has begun!

Blessings

January 12, 2018 General Comments Off on Running Hard, Resting Well 1/23 6 p.m. Posted By: Brock Zehr

Learning how to rest well reacquaints us with the peace our souls have tried to live without, counteracting the corrosive nature of 24/7. As leaders, choosing to realign our lives to the motto “Run Hard. Rest Well.” prepares us to advance into the world with power not our own. Championing transformative rhythms of work and rest in businesses and organizations revolutionizes God’s work in us and through us.

The Huntington University Business & Economics department will host the event featuring speakers Brenda Jank and Deb Beck. Brenda is the founder and director of Run Hard. Rest Well. She speaks from coast to coast and has written for Focus on the Family, Discipleship Journal, and Christianity Today publications. Deb Beck is a partner with Thrivent Financial, a not-for-profit Fortune 500 organization which blends faith, finances, and generosity in its business model.

Join us for this event on Tuesday, January 23 6 – 7 pm in Loew-Brenn Hall Room 055. Seating is limited to the first 40 who register http://www.huleaders.eventbrite.com/
Attendance counts as a chapel credit. ALL STUDENTS WISHING TO RECEIVE ELECTIVE CHAPEL CREDIT MUST SIGN IN WITH FIRST & LAST NAME & ID NUMBER (legibly).

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

January 11, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU women’s basketball team turned in one of its best quarters of the year Wednesday night to claim a 69-57 road win over #RV Saint Francis. The big quarter came in the fourth where the Foresters missed just two shots while going 16-for-20 from the line to put 32 points on the scoreboard on the way to their second straight league win.

The dub not only snapped a six-game losing streak against the Cougars but also marked the first time in seven years that Culler’s crew picked up a win at Hutzell Athletic Center. Their last win on USF’s turf was a 68-65 decision dating back to November 22 of 2011.

The Foresters are now 11-7 overall, 4-3 in CL play good for the 5th spot in the league standings. Saint Francis, who dropped from 20th to 26th in the latest national poll, is now 11-8 overall, 3-4 in conference action.

Huntington claims defense as their bread and butter but it was their offensive firepower in the final 12 minutes that propelled the visitors to tonight’s win. After managing just 27 points through the first 28 minutes, HU went into offensive overdrive that started when Hailey Krewald dropped in a triple to reduce a double-digit deficit to nine at 39-30 with just over two minutes left in the third.

It sparked a 13-1 run that spilled into the fourth for a 40-40 stalemate at the 9:31 mark with Sam Hammel serving as the catalytic agent. The 5-7 rookie connected on a pair of traditional three-point plays on either side of the last break in addition to scoring on a nifty move in the lane at the end of the third to account for all but five points during her team’s two-and-a-half minute tear.

The Cougars would reclaim a brief lead before Sarah Fryman, currently ranked 2nd in the nation in free throw percentage, knocked down four freebies to give her team a permanent lead, 44-42, with just over eight minutes to go.

The Foresters played near-perfect basketball after that with big contributions from multiple players. Casey Morton canned two from long range within the next three minutes, each time extending her team’s advantage to two possessions. Maddie Richer’s long ball with three minutes remaining finally gave Culler and crew their first double-digit lead of 60-49.

Krewald went 3-for-4 from the charity stripe down the stretch and came up with several big rebounds with none bigger than an offensive board on a rare miss at the line for Huntington. Hammel filled in the gaps – picking off a pass early in the fourth that proved pivotal in HU’s comeback in addition to posting four more points after her second and one.

When all was said and done, the Foresters outscored their hosts 42-18 in the final 12 minutes to make for one of the program’s most epic finishes.

The second half saw the visitors miss just five shots from the floor for a scorching 68.8 percent (11-for-16). When they weren’t knocking down a shot, they were hanging out at the free throw line where they went 22-for-26 in the final twenty minutes which included going 9-for-12 to close out the game.

The first frame wasn’t quite as flattering for HU as they managed just seven field goals on 33.3 percent shooting to go along with five points from the stripe to find themselves down 26-21 at intermission. Huntington played catchup for all but one possession in the opening period and faced a deficit the entire third quarter before their grand turnaround in the fourth.

Huntington shot 48.6 percent (18-for-37) for the game which included six from downtown and drained 27 of their 32 free throws for 84.4 percent while their hosts managed just 36.2 percent from the field (17-for-47) and 65.4 percent from the line (17-for-26).

The Foresters won the battle of the boards, 30-22, but committed 18 turnovers to USF’s 11.

Richer was sensational for Culler’s crew. Despite being hounded all night by USF defenders, the 5-5 point guard committed just one TO in over 38 minutes of playing time and was a perfect 3-for-3 behind the arc and knocked down all eight of her free throws to finish with a team-best 17 points. She also pulled down four rebounds, handed out two dimes and grabbed a steal.

Hammel came off the bench to have a big game for the Foresters as well by tallying 14 points, two assists and three steals. Fryman added 12 points while Morton chipped in ten. Brooke Saylor collected a game-best 11 rebounds and enjoyed game-high honors in assists with three.

Kara Gerke and Josie Murphy posted 22 and 11 points respectively to pace the Cougars.

The Foresters will have their hands full on Saturday when they host #5 Marian at 1:00 p.m.

This just in – HU history professor Dwight Brautigam packs in the HUAZ students for his HS115 Historical Perspectives J-Term course. You can follow his adventures and antics on the Huntington University Arizona Facebook and Instagram sites.
