The LHU men’s basketball team was edged out by Millersville, 73-69, after the Marauders used a strong second half to comeback vs. the Bald Eagles.
MILLERSVILLE, Pa. – Amir Hinton (Philadelphia/Abington) had a monster double-double, which was powered by a team-high 24 points and he was one four players in double figures scoring, but it wasn’t enough as the Lock Haven University men’s basketball (7-17, 5-15 PSAC East) was edged by host Millersville University (10-17, 8-13 PSAC East) 73-69 today in Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division action.

Hinton had 14 rebounds and three assists to go along with his solid scoring day.

Ra’eese Hunt (Upper Marlboro, Md./Riverdale Baptist) netted 14 points and grabbed nine rebounds.

Tarojae Brake (Coatesville, Pa./Octorara) finished with 13 points and Matt Cerruti (Huntingdon Valley, Pa./Archbishop Wood) chipped in with 11.

LHU led 36-30 at halftime behind 16 first-half points from Hinton, but Millersville opened the second half on a quick run and that fast second-half start paved the way for the Marauders comeback-win. James Sullivan scored 25 points for MU.

The Bald Eagles will return to action on Wednesday, February 21 at Cheyney (7:30 p.m.).
