Huntington, Ind. - A late first-half scoring run by Huntington University (Ind.) proved to be too much for Saint Xavier University to recover from as the Cougars dropped their first game of the year, 96-76, Saturday afternoon in Huntington, Ind. Sophomore point guard Roosevelt Green (Markham, Ill./Tinley Park) finished with a team-best 18 points to lead the Cougars on 8-for-16 shooting from the field. With SXU trailing by two, 30-28, with just over five minutes to play before halftime, the Foresters closed out the half with a 21-5 run to take a 51-33 lead into the locker room. The Cougars (8-1 overall) could not bounce back trailing by as many as 28 points in second-half action.

Senior forward Jake Listebarger (Harvard, Ill./McHenry County College/Richmond-Burton) came off the bench to contribute 14 points and four rebounds for SXU, while senior guard Stan Mayfield (Grayson, Ga./McKendree University/Shiloh) and freshman forward Brad Karp (Valparaiso, Ind./Valparaiso) each chipped in 11 points. The Cougars had difficulty with taking care of the ball committing 19 turnovers in the game. Huntington shot 51 percent (36-for-70) from the floor in the game, including 53 percent (20-for-38) in the first half.

Saint Xavier (8-1 overall) heads downtown on Saturday, December 4, to open its conference slate against new Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) member Roosevelt University (Ill.). The game will be played on the campus of Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) at the Keating Sports Center with a tip-off of 3 p.m.
