WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

The Huntington women’s basketball team extended its win streak to three Wednesday night with a 77-64 win over Holy Cross College at McKenna Arena.

After coming up empty on its opening two possessions, the Foresters scored on seven straight for a 13-7 lead midway through the first quarter. They would go on to miss just three shots in the next five minutes to enjoy a 24-18 advantage at the first break.

Offense didn’t come quite so easily for Huntington in the second quarter as the Saints, who live or die by the three-pointer, spent the first six minutes outscoring their visitors by ten for a 34-30 lead. Nevertheless, there was no panic in Coach Culler’s crew as they spent the final four minutes countering with a 9-1 run spearheaded by back-to-back buckets by Cindy In’t Groen and a triple by Maddie Richer for a 39-35 halftime lead.

After dropping in three from long range through the first 20 minutes, Holy Cross matched that to start the third quarter with Tagin Schultheis accounting for all three in the opening five minutes to force what proved the 13th and final lead change of the game at 50-49.

Behind six points from Sarah Fryman, the Foresters scored 11 straight points for the game’s first double-digit difference with just over a minute and some change remaining in the quarter.

The Saints fired up another three that found nothing but the bottom of the net and Keysha Streater scored down low to get HCC right back in it at 60-55 to start the fourth. But it was in that final ten minutes that Holy Cross finally cooled off by going 3-for-15 from the field to score just nine points.

HU, on the other hand, connected on six of their nine field goal attempts and canned five of their seven freebies down the stretch to blow the game open by the final buzzer.

As a team, the Foresters shot over .500 for the game (31-for-58) which included going 4-for-10 from deep while scoring 11 points from the line. The Saints shot 41.0 percent from the field with half of their shots coming behind the arc where they went 9-for-30.

Huntington out-rebounded their hosts 37-26 behind Brooke Saylor’s game-best ten boards. The 5-10 forward also tossed in 16 points for her second consecutive double double.

After scoring just six points in the first half, Fryman exploded for 17 points in the final 20 minutes to finish with a game-high 23 points – a new career high. Sam Hammel came off the bench to add 12 points and snag a game-best four steals.

Schultheis topped her team with 21 points including 15 from deep. Streater poured in 17 points and Jessica Norris tallied 11.

The Foresters (3-1) are a perfect 6-0 against the Saints under the leadership of Culler. HU hits the road again on Saturday to tip-off with Judson University at 1:00 p.m. CST.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

Earlier this fall the National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) tabbed Huntington University Coach Lori Culler as the winningest active women’s basketball coach in NAIA Division II.

The HU veteran entered the 2017-18 season having accumulated 560 wins over the last 31 years for a win percentage of .607.

Culler’s teams have been distinctly successful on a number of levels. Her teams, which have won an average of 18 games during her tenure, have posted 23 winning seasons. Seven squads have brought home a conference regular season title, including five teams that that went undefeated through conference play.

Two teams were crowned NCCAA National Champions in 1991 and 1992. Under Culler’s leadership, the Foresters have made six trips to the NAIA National Tournament, finishing in the Sweet Sixteen three times.

Twenty-nine times her players have earned NAIA and/or NCCAA All-American honors, and on 70 occasions, players have received All-Conference honors, including two Conference Players of the Year honorees in Amy Bechtel (1999) and Miranda Palmer (2017).

The Foresters are currently 2-1 on the year. Next up is a trip to Holy Cross tonight for a 5:30 p.m. tip-off with the Saints.

MEN’S BASKETBALL

November 8, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

It was pesky defense that propelled the Huntington men’s basketball team to its first win Tuesday night, a 71-57 decision, over Lawrence Tech.

The Blue Devils entered the evening averaging over 76 points through its first two games but the Foresters made sure that didn’t happen in Platt Arena. HU limited their visitors to 32.2 percent shooting (19-for-59) which included holding Devonte Myles to just two field goals and six freebies for ten points, nearly 15 points under what he has been averaging.

Huntington’s defense was also relentless in the paint as they gave up just 18 points in the lane while swatting ten shots. Tyler Arens took charge inside by snarling a team-best seven rebounds while registering a career-best six blocks.

At the other end of the hardwood, a balanced attack characterized Coach Platt’s offense. Arens dropped in 18 points to lead the way. Mike Bush finished with 12 points and handed out a game-high nine assists while Konner Platt added 11 points.

As a team, the Foresters connected on 28 of their 60 field goals for 46.7 percent, which included nine from long range.

Arens got his team off to a good start by scoring seven of HU’s first nine points including a three at the top of the key at the 15:38 mark for a 9-6 advantage that was never relinquished. His triple sparked a 13-2 run that featured a pair of long balls from the Platt brothers and was capped off with a put back from Trevor Lockwood for a 19-8 lead by the midway point of the first session.

The teams traded baskets the rest of the half as the 11-point difference remained, 34-23, heading into intermission. Andrew Yoder, in his first collegiate start, scored five of his seven points in the opening two minutes of the second period to give Huntington its largest lead, a 39-26 tilt, up to that point.

It looked like a blowout in the making but the Blue Devils weren’t having it. Instead, LTU countered with a slew of threes. Alek Ivanovic drained three of his team’s four long balls over an eight-minute span to dwindle the lead to a single point at 43-42.

Behind Arens and Konner Platt, the hosts remained poised. Arens posted an and one while Platt buried one from deep to grow the lead back to seven just inside of ten minutes remaining. Six minutes later the advantage still stood at seven but it was all HU after that.

Arens and Platt each scored again and then Bush took the Foresters home by scoring seven of Huntington’s final nine points which included a pair of threes for the 14-point win.

Ty’rese Searless led Lawrence Tech with 20 points. In addition to Myles’ ten points, he also pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds for the double double.

Since Coach Platt took over the reins in 2008, the Foresters are a perfect 3-0 against the Blue Devils. With tonight’s win, HU is now 1-2 on the year as they look forward to hosting the annual Ness Bros. Hall of Fame Tournament this weekend. The Foresters will face IU Northwest on Friday at 8:00 p.m.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

November 6, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU women’s basketball team picked up its second win in less than 24 hours to wrap up the Crossroads League/WHAC Classic with a 54-43 decision over Aquinas College Saturday afternoon. With this W, the Foresters improve to 2-1 and finish 2-0 against their WHAC opponents.

Saint Francis was the other Crossroads League team participating in the classic and they too tallied wins over Aquinas and Cornerstone for a 4-0 sweep over the WHAC in the annual league vs. league challenge.

Just like against Cornerstone last night, defense was the Foresters’ bread and butter. On this given day, HU limited the Saints to just 11 field goals on 22.0 percent shooting. The rest of Aquinas’ points came by way of the free throw line where they went 18-for-23.

Huntington’s defense created instant offense for the hosts as they converted 18 Aquinas miscues into 17 points. Half of AC’s turnovers were HU steals with Maddie Richer, Hailey Krewald and Sam Hammel each swiping a pair.

While offense didn’t necessarily come easy for either team, the Foresters got the job done at the other end of the hardwood to enjoy a lead for all but two minutes of the 40-minute contest. As a team, Culler’s crew finished 22-for-60 for 36.7 percent while going 5-for-5 from the charity stripe.

Scoring was by committee with Sarah Fryman and Casey Morton leading the way with 11 and ten points respectively. Hammel added eight points and a game-best five assists. Richer tossed in eight points and dished out three assists.

The Foresters’ lead never crept into double digits through the first half but Saylor’s bucket in the paint two minutes into the third finally brook that barrier for a 31-21 tilt. The Saints would whittle it down to five three times but would get no closer as Richer, Morton and Krewald each nailed a triple at key moments in the final 13 minutes to hold their visitors at bay.

It was an evenly matched battle of the boards with HU owning a slim 41-40 advantage. Aquinas tracked down 13 offensive boards for ten second chance points to Huntington’s 11 for eight points. Brooke Saylor led the charge for HU with 12 caroms while Krewald corralled ten.

Momo Neal was the Saints’ only double-digit scorer with 14 points. Michaela Faber added eight points to go along with a team-best seven rebounds.

The Foresters have held the upper hand against Aquinas under Coach Culler’s tutelage – tallying 12 wins against six losses.

HU hits the road for the first time this season on Wednesday to take on Holy Cross College at 5:30 p.m.
