The Huntington North High School boys' basketball team let an 11-point halftime lead slip away and wound up losing to visiting Logansport in overtime, 59-54, on Friday, Feb. 20.

The Vikings' Tannan Peters hit a 3-point shot with 6.5 seconds left in regulation to knot the score at 52-all and send the game into overtime. Once there, the Vikings only got two points, on free throws from Taylor Harris, to fall to their 12 loss in 17 outings.

After Harris tied the contest at 54-54 with his charity tosses, Logansport, 12-6, hit five free throws to win the game.

Rob Sands led the Vikings with 16 points, hitting 4 of 6 3-pointers. Peters finished with nine points and Harris added seven to go along with a team-high seven rebounds and four assists. Matt Kramer added four assists.

The Vikings hit only 18 of 45 field goal attempts for 40 percent, but nailed 12 of 25 from behind the 3-point line to help build their lead and then keep the game close. They were especially hot from behind the line in the first half, hitting 8 of 13.

Huntington North led 19-11 after the first stanza and widened the gap to 34-23 by halftime. A third quarter drought brought Logansport back into the game, although North was still up 39-37 after three quarters.

Jordan Champion and Nate Champion led the Berries with 22 and 21 points, respectively.

The Berries also did the job from behind the arc, nailing 8 of 15 among their 18 of 32 from the field, 56.2 percent. They added to that by connecting on 15 of 16 charity tosses for the contest
