SPRING ARBOR, Mich. – It took an extra session for the HU men's basketball team to escape McDonald Athletic Center with an 80-75 decision over Spring Arbor Tuesday night.

FAIRVIEW, Ill. - The Huntington bowling teams were on the lanes this weekend at the National Collegiate Team Match Games for a tournament format that included six team games on Saturday and 20 Baker games on Sunday.

"The field was smaller than most years for one of college bowling's oldest and most prestigious events," said Coach Mike Shockey. "But it was probably one of strongest fields we will see until postseason play begins. Eight of the 16 schools represented are currently ranked in the top 20 in the country."

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – A short-staffed HU men's basketball team suffered a 96-89 road loss to Bethel Tuesday evening at the Wiekamp Athletic Center.

As a team, the guests coughed up the ball just twice while canning 56.3 percent of their field goals which included going 9-for-14 from long range.

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – The Pilots of Bethel University used a strong second half to hand the HU women's basketball team a 91-70 loss Tuesday night at Wiekamp Athletic Center. It's BU's first win against their guests since 2016 and snapped a ten-game win streak the Foresters carried into the contest.

The Pilots' brand of basketball that features five-person subbing every minute, a full court trapping defense and an offense that thrives on scoring within ten seconds of every possession made for plenty of action and chaos that often felt more like a track meet than a basketball game.
