Huskies Boys Basketball Get Season-Opening Win

The Huskies opened their 2017-18 season on the road with a 66-56 win at Creighton on Friday night.  To start the game, we hit a quick three-pointer, but scoring for the rest of the half was slow as we struggled to find our offensive rhythm and hit shots.  By the end of the first quarter, Creighton had taken advantage of our scoring drought to build a 16-9 lead, but in the second quarter, we turned up the defensive intensity and cut the Bullldog lead to 4, going into the locker room down 24-20.  After regrouping at halftime, the Huskies got off to a quick start in the third, converting a couple steals into points and then heating up from the perimeter, hitting shots from beyond the arc and off the dribble drive in the paint.  In the third, we outscored Creighton 22-12 to take a 42-36 lead into the fourth.  In the final frame, both teams played tough, but we were able to hold the Bulldogs off by hitting 14 of 18 free throws (77.7%) to seal the victory. For the night, we were 21 of 29 (72.4%) from the line, which met two goals we have for the season: creating more free throw opportunities and making 70% of our attempts.  Next up for the Huskies will Ainsworth on the road on Friday and Burwell at home on Saturday.
