(Notre Dame, IN) Coming off a great weekend of basketball in the Bethel College Classic the Saints were hoping to continue their success against another very talented Mid Central Conference (MCC) team in Huntington University.
The Foresters came into the McKenna Arena undefeated and were coming off a big win over NAIA DI #12, Lindenwood University. The Saints were able to hang tough for much of the first half, but Huntington used its post presence to pull away from the Saints. Midway through the half the Foresters went on a 14-1 run to give them a 16 point lead. It wasn't until the 5:30 mark when J.T. Breveard (South Bend, IN) nailed a 3-pointer to stop the Forester run. Huntington held a 17 point lead at the half.
The second half started with the Foresters making another run. This time it was a 12-3 run that swelled the Huntington lead to 26. The Saints eventually lost 104 - 75. Breveard continued his great play with 29 points on 8 - 17 shooting including 5-7 from 3-point range. The Foresters were led by Kevin Kyle with 24 points.
The Saints continue their schedule with a match-up this Saturday at 3pm vs. Purdue University - North Central.
