HUNTINGTON, Ind. – The #RV Forester women's basketball team extended its win streak to six over Spring Arbor with a 67-55 decision over the Cougars Saturday afternoon at Platt Arena. The W also snaps a three-game losing skid for Culler and crew.

Huntington improves to 10-7 overall, 3-3 in league play. The 12-point victory is the 7th time this season the Foresters have won by double figures. SAU's overall record now stands at 5-13 which includes one win against five losses in league play.

The last four minutes of the third quarter proved pivotal as HU went on a 13-4 tear to turn a two-point advantage into an 11-point cushion of



50-39 with Sarah Fryman and Brooke Saylor doing the dirty work. Saylor scored twice in the paint with her second bucket accompanied by an and one while Fryman hit a jumper at the top of the key and then drained a pair of threes including a buzzer-beater to account for all 13 points.

The duo picked up where they left off to start the fourth quarter by each putting two points on the board after which Erin Mohr scored in transition to give Culler's squad its largest lead of the day at 56-41 with 6:47 to go.

The pesky Cougars methodically battled back to trim the lead seven, 60-53, with just over 90 seconds remaining but then began the march to the charity stripe where Fryman went 5-for-6 and Mohr canned both of hers. SAU would score just once in the midst of the free throw finale to make for the 12-point ending.   

Prior to HU's 13-4 run in the third, the two teams were in a knock-down drag-out fight for the advantage. After spotting SAU a nine-point lead to start the game, Huntington spent the final four minutes of the first quarter outscoring the Cougars by 11 for a 17-15 HU lead at the first break. Jade Clement came off the bench to spur the turnaround by sprinting the floor for two quick buckets and knocking down a pair of freebies for six of her team's last eight points of the quarter.

While SAU held the lead for most of the second quarter, no more than four points ever separated the two teams with the highlight of the frame coming at the buzzer. Somehow Sam Hammel got a bumbled ball into the hands of Fryman who calmly tickled the twine from downtown as time expired to send her team into the locker room in a 27-27 deadlock with the Cougs.

Spring Arbor would go on to hold just one more lead on the afternoon, a 33-31 tilt at the 6:17 mark of the third, in addition to forcing the game's third and final tie just 60 seconds later before Fryman and Saylor took over to close out the quarter giving Huntington its permanent advantage.

Fryman topped all scorers with 28 points to go along with four assists and three rebounds. Saylor added 12 points and ripped down a game-best seven boards. Mohr also tossed in 12 points to round out HU's double digit scoring. Hammel tied her career-best by handing out eight assists while swiping a game-leading four steals.

Gracie Cabana led the Cougars with 14 points. Anne Marie Wright finished with 11 points while Rachel Nelson collected ten.
