Poor first half shooting helps sink Vikings against Mississinewa

Poor first half shooting put the Huntington North High School boys' basketball team into a hole from which it could not climb out of and it wound up losing to host Mississinewa, 46-37, on Saturday, Nov. 28.

The Vikings, falling to 0-2, hit just 4 for 21 from the field in the first half and were on the short end of a 24-14 halftime score. Although they rebounded in the second half by hitting 8 of 16 field goal attempts for 50 percent, they couldn't make up the difference.
