Men’s Hoops Claws Tigers
13 February 2017 Sports
The five wins surpasses the 2013-14 squad for most ODAC victories since the school joined the league for the 2012-13 season.
SU led for more than 38 minutes in the victory over the Tigers – although the two teams swapped the lead four times, H-SC led for just 32 seconds of the 40-minute contest.
The visitors second and final lead came with 9:45 to play as Hunter Kuehn hit a jumper in the lane to put the Tigers up one, 47-46.
Junior Kwa McDonald, who had a co-game-high 20 points, answered Kuehn’s jumper with a 3-pointer 17 seconds later and Shenandoah never trailed again.
McDonald’s ‘3’, one of two he had on the day, kick-started an 11-2 run over the next 3:13 that gave the Hornets a 57-49 lead with 6:15 remaining.
The Hornets would lead by at least three points the rest of the way.
H-SC was able to cut it to that three-point margin, 67-64, with 1.6 seconds remaining thanks to a Malik Crute steal and layup, but the Tigers were whistled for a technical foul on the ensuing inbounds and McDonald hit both the subsequent free throws to ice the victory.
Kuehn had 12 points to lead H-SC.
