JACKSON, Miss.—Senior Leon Frazier posted his second
double-double of the season to lift the Huntingdon men’s basketball
team past Millsaps, 61-57, in the second game of the 2010 Cabot
Lodge-Millsaps Holiday Tournament on Saturday at the Hangar Dome.
The Hawks (4-5), who won their second straight game with the
victory, will now look to avenge a season-opening loss to Rust College,
which defeated East Texas Baptist in the opening game of the
tournament. Huntingdon and Bearcats will tip off at 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Frazier gave the Hawks a major jump-start in the second half, after
they trailed by seven points at the intermission 28-21. The Durham,
N.C., native scored 16 of his game-high 20 points and pulled down seven
rebounds in the decisive second half, one in which the Hawks outscored
the Majors (2-7), 40-29.
Frazier added 10 rebounds, while junior James Daniels chipped in 10
rebounds. For the game, Huntingdon held a 46-36 advantage on the glass,
while limiting the Majors to only 31.1 percent shooting from the floor.
Daniels also contributed eight points off the bench, as did fellow
junior Ephraim Hudson. Senior Reggie Sprouse added nine points and a
team-best five assists.
Huntingdon finished the contest 20-of-53 from the field, despite
hitting just 3-of-17 shots from behind the arc. The Hawks converted
18-of-23 free throw attempts, including a perfect 7-of-7 by Frazier.
Cameron Varnado paced the Majors with 12 points, while Blake
Martinez managed just six points. Martinez entered the contest
averaging better than 18 points per game.
