MOUNT BERRY, Ga. – The Huntingdon men's basketball team fell to Emory & Henry in the Berry College Tip-Off Classic on Friday.
Huntingdon led for much of the game but lost 89-73.
"We led at the half, but we made too many mistakes," Huntingdon head coach Mike Pugh said. "We had 24 turnovers we were only 21-of-34 from the free-throw line. It's tough to win when you play like that. But those are areas we're going to work on as we move forward."
Huntingdon led 49-40 at the half and maintained the lead for most of the second half before Emory & Henry took the lead in the final nine minutes. Huntingdon kept it close and only trailed 78-71 with four minutes to play but the Wasps continued to ease ahead.
The Hawks return to action on Saturday at 5 p.m. against Berry.
