Konner Platt pumped in 31 points but the Huntington University men’s basketball team came up short against visiting No. 17 Bethel College, 89-82, on Saturday afternoon, Feb. 16.

Platt’s season-best offensive output came on the wings of a 12 of 19 shooting performance, which included 7 of 8 from two-point range. The junior also added four asissts and a pair of steals, but it was not enough to keep HU from dropping to 16-14 on the season.

Eleven of HU’s losses have come against ranked opponents.

Caleb Middlesworth added 20 points and Zac Owens had 19 for HU.
