WINCHESTER, Va. – Visiting Hampden-Sydney had a stellar shooting afternoon in an 89-75 ODAC men's basketball victory over Shenandoah University Saturday afternoon at the James R. Wilkins, Jr. Athletics & Events Center.
The Hornets were able to cut a 10-point halftime deficit to just two, 51-49, following a Jaylen Williams layup at 13:29, but could not come all the way back.
For the second straight game, free throw shooting woes hurt the Hornets as the squad shot 12-of-20 (60 percent) from the line. In the second half, SU missed a pair with 12:50 that could have knotted the score at 51-51.
Leading 54-52 after Alan Dabney hit two free throws at 11:42, the Tigers pulled away with a 9-2 run over the next 4:29. From this point on, Shenandoah would get no closer than five points.
