Team play, big runs key HU to upset win over 10th-ranked Saint Francis

Solid team play and big runs late in both halves helped the Huntington University men's basketball team stun visiting 10th-ranked Saint Francis, 103-87 on Tuesday, Feb. 16.

Bobby Jolliff scored six points to lead an 18-4 run in the final minutes of the first half to take HU from a 40-31 deficit with four minutes to play into a 49-44 lead at halftime.

After HU pushed out to a 54-44 lead early in the second half, the Cougars fought back to within one at 65-64 with 13:23 left to play, but five different Foresters took turns scoring to push the margin back to 10 at 80-70 with just over nine minutes left in the contest.
The Cougars never got closer than six after that, especially since HU hit 11 of 12 free throws down the stretch.

Tyler Shively led the charge for HU, 16-13 overall, with 23 points. Luke Smith added 20, Kellen Zawadzki and Kevin Kyle each scored 14 points and Jolliff added 12 off the bench.

Kyle also grabbed a team-high nine rebounds. Caleb Kennedy added seven and Jolliff had six.

Zawadzki dished out four assists and Shively had three.

Ethan Hussey scored 20 points to lead Saint Francis, 22-7. DeJova Sawyer-Davis had 19 points and 12 rebounds and Ferdin Morales-Soto had 16 points.

The Foresters hit 34 of 68 field goal tries for an even 50 percent, and went 29 of 37 from the line for 78.4 percent, including 16 of 18 in the second half.
