AUM men's basketball team evened its season record with a 65-59 victory over Huntingdon on Monday. Junior LaRel Jackson scored a season-high 12 points and fellow junior Reshad Bickham added a double-double during the game.
With the win, the Warhawks improved to 9-9 on the season, while the Hawks fell to 5-13 overall.
“I really tip my hat to Mike Pugh’s team,” head coach Larry Chapman said. “I thought they really battled, made winning plays all night and hit the free throws they were given. I think we were fortunate to be able to make some plays late in the game and earn the victory. I appreciate the turnout and the atmosphere here tonight. This was a great thing for local college basketball.”
Joining Jackson in double figures was Bickham and sophomores Quay Davis and Michael Willis with 11 points each. Bickham also added a game-high 11 rebounds.
“I thought LaRel played well for the whole game,” Chapman said.
