MOUNT BERRY, Ga.—Junior Ephriam Hudson scored 16 points to
lead for Huntingdon players in double figures, but the Hawks fell to
NAIA foe Berry, 74-70, on Tuesday, and in the process, snapped their
five-game winning streak.
Huntingdon (7-6), which trailed by nine points at the half and by as
many as 12 points in the second half, tied the score at 70 with 17
seconds left in the game on a 3-pointer by senior Reggie Sprouse.
However, the Vikings (5-7) hit 4-of-6 free throws in the final 17 seconds of the contest to pull out the four-point victory.
Sprouse came off the bench to score 14 points for the Hawks, while
junior Adrian Williams added 13 points and nine rebounds. Fellow junior
Deshaun Williams chipped in 10 points and a team-best three assists.
Sprouse also finished with seven rebounds.
For the contest, Huntingdon converted 24-of-60 shots from the floor,
good for 40 percent, while it knocked down 76.2 percent, 16-of-21, of
its free throws. The Hawks also committed 13 turnovers, leading to 19
Vikings’ points, but held a 13-8 advantage in second-chance points.
Berry was paced by Will Blackwell, who scored a game-high 20 points. Tim Miles and David Holloman each finished with 11 points.
Huntingdon will look to get back on the winning track on Saturday,
when it travels to Demorest, Ga., to take on Piedmont. Tip-off for the
