The Huntingdon men’s basketball team took control in the first half Wednesday and knocked off Millsaps 75-61. The win was the second of the season for the Hawks (2-6).
“We played great defense, we rebounded well and we shot free throws well. When you do those three things, wins are a lot easier to come by,” Huntingdon head coach Mike Pugh said. “Those are three areas we’ve struggled in this season but we’ve been working hard to improve and it showed tonight.”
Huntingdon built a double-digit lead in the first half and led by as many as 14 points before taking a 40-35 lead at the half. The Hawks opened the second half with a 6-0 run to push their lead back to 11 points. Huntingdon built as much as a 20-point lead in the second half and led by at least 14 points for the final 12 minutes of the game.
