GSAC Player of the Week Williams Powers Hawks Past Covenant, 70-63

LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, Ga.—Reigning Great South Athletic Conference Player of the Week Adrian Williams scored a game-high 19 points, while adding eight rebounds and eight blocked shots, as the Huntingdon men’s basketball team used a furious second-half rally to defeat Covenant 70-63 on Wednesday at the Barnes Physical Education Center.

Trailing by as many as 17 points in the first half and by eight at the intermission, 34-26, the Hawks (11-9) outscored the Scots (3-17) 44-29 in the second period, thanks to an efficient offense that converted better than 54 percent of their shots. Huntingdon also knocked down 17-of-23 shots from the charity stripe, including 6-of-8 in the final minute to secure the victory.

In the decisive second period, Williams finished with nine points, four rebounds and five blocked shots, keying the comeback for Huntingdon.

Huntingdon also capitalized on 21 turnovers by the Scots, leading to 22 points. The Hawks also converted 22-of-48 shots from the field, while knocking down 24-of-32 free throws. Despite the strong shooting performance, the Hawks were outrebounded by 12 on the glass, including by 10 on the offensive boards.

Joining Williams in double figures was senior Reggie Sprouse, who added 14 points and eight rebounds. Junior Ephraim Hudson chipped in 11 points and six rebounds.

Sam Bowman led Covenant with 13 points and 10 rebounds off the bench. Zarome Lakey and Callum Sears each added nine points.

Huntingdon will look to win its third straight game on Saturday, when it hosts Great South Athletic Conference rival Maryville on Senior Day at Roland Arena. Tip-off for the contest is slated for 4 p.m.
