Sands' 24 points not enough to stop HNHS slide

Rob Sands' 24 points weren't enough to stop a fourth consecutive loss for the Huntington North High School boys' basketball team on Saturday, Feb. 14, as it fell to host Fort Wayne North Side, 55-48.

Sands, a senior guard, connected on eight of 14 shots from the field, including 4 of 8 from three-point range, and hit all four free throw chances to lead all scorers, but it wasn't enough to keep the Vikings from dropping to 5-10 on the season.

Sands also had five rebounds, two assists and two steals.
The Vikings had an 11-10 lead after the first quarter but trailed 27-20 at halftime. North Side pulled out to a 40-30 lead after three quarters.

Tannan Peters had eight points and Jordan Beaver had seven for HNHS. Beaver also grabbed a team-high eight rebounds.

Taylor Harris contributed four assists to the HNHS cause.
HNHS hit 16 of 42 shots from the field for 38.1 percent.
Justin Jordan led North Side with 21 points. Robert Williams added 13.

The HNHS junior varsity also went down to defeat, losing 48-41.

Levi Lawson led HNHS with 18 points.

The Vikings will travel to Anderson on Tuesday, Feb. 17, for a rescheduled game.
