COMEBACK KIDS!
Friday night's Boys Basketball game vs Huntsville did not look promising for the home team for most of the night. In the end, the Huskies put together a huge 4th quarter comeback to come away with a 57-54 win. Hewitt improved to 14-6 overall on the year and finished with a 4-2 record in Area play. Grissom lost to Gadsden City Friday night, so the Huskies and Grissom finished tied for first place. A coin flip on Monday will determine which team hosts the area tournament.

The first quarter was fast paced with both teams performing well on the offensive end. Hewitt hit a late basket to take a 16-14 lead. The second quarter was dominated by Huntsville. The Huskies only scored four points in the quarter and the Panthers took a 28-20 lead into halftime.

The third quarter didn't go well for Hewitt either. Huntsville led the game by 14 points late in the third quarter. That is when the comeback began. The Huskies finally were able to hit some key three pointers. Senior Damon Harper hit two free throws to give the Huskies the lead with under a minute left. Huntsville trailed by three points in the final seconds, and were unable to connect on a long shot to tie the game. Harper led Hewitt in scoring as he scored 20 points in his last regular season home game.

After three non-area games this week the Huskies will compete in the Area Tournament. Dates and times will be announced on www.hthuskies.com.
