HUNTINGTON, Ind. – Host Huntington University got off to a red hot start and never looked back, defeating the Goshen College women's basketball team 84-47 Wednesday night.
The Foresters started the contest on a 23-2 run and hit a sparkling 64% from the field in the first half. The Maple Leafs converted just 7-of-24 (29%) in the first period and while they hit a much improved 41% in the second stanza, they could not slow a potent Huntington attack.
Sarah Miller-Jennings led all scorers with 24 points for Huntington. She hit 7-of-11 from the field and added six assists, while Allison Greene had 18 points and Amelia Recker scored 14 off the bench.
Goshen was led by Jaime Stack and Liz Tecca who each scored 11. Freshman Abby Short added a career high 10 points off the bench and was one rebound short of a double-double with nine rebounds (also a career high).
The Maple Leafs out rebounded Huntington 31-28, including 12 rebounds on the offensive glass. They turned the ball over 27 times, though, which the hosts turned into 30 points.
The season will come to an end for Goshen (3-26, 1-16 Crossroads League) when they host NAIA DII #1 Indiana Wesleyan University on Saturday. Opening tip is slated for 1:00 p.m. at Gunden Gymnasium.
