Hawks Win Second Straight Behind Frazier’s Double-Double

JACKSON, Miss.—Senior Leon Frazier posted his second double-double of the season to lift the Huntingdon men’s basketball team past Millsaps, 61-57, in the second game of the 2010 Cabot Lodge-Millsaps Holiday Tournament on Saturday at the Hangar Dome.

The Hawks (4-5), who won their second straight game with the victory, will now look to avenge a season-opening loss to Rust College, which defeated East Texas Baptist in the opening game of the tournament. Huntingdon and Bearcats will tip off at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Frazier gave the Hawks a major jump-start in the second half, after they trailed by seven points at the intermission 28-21. The Durham, N.C., native scored 16 of his game-high 20 points and pulled down seven rebounds in the decisive second half, one in which the Hawks outscored the Majors (2-7), 40-29.

Frazier added 10 rebounds, while junior James Daniels chipped in 10 rebounds. For the game, Huntingdon held a 46-36 advantage on the glass, while limiting the Majors to only 31.1 percent shooting from the floor.

Daniels also contributed eight points off the bench, as did fellow junior Ephraim Hudson. Senior Reggie Sprouse added nine points and a team-best five assists.

Huntingdon finished the contest 20-of-53 from the field, despite hitting just 3-of-17 shots from behind the arc. The Hawks converted 18-of-23 free throw attempts, including a perfect 7-of-7 by Frazier.

Cameron Varnado paced the Majors with 12 points, while Blake Martinez managed just six points. Martinez entered the contest averaging better than 18 points per game.
