Pendleton was able to control the rest of the game from the free throw line as the Arabians made 11 of 16 attempts in the second half after not going to the line in the first half. “In the first half we lost patience on both offense and defense,” said Hahn. “In the second half, we were much better.”
In addition to hitting their free throws, Pendleton shot 67 percent from the field in the second half and only turned the ball over eight times for the game while Greenfield had 14 turnovers.
The Arabians were led by Kenton Dunham’s 18 points. McDermott finished with 15. The Arabians (10-3, 5-0 HHC) will host Muncie South tomorrow with the JV tip at 6 p.m.
“We’ve got one conference game left and we control our own destiny,” Hahn said. “We have an opportunity to go undefeated in the conference. We’ll take next week to prepare for Yorktown but right now we are going to get ready for Muncie South tomorrow night.”
Greenfield falls to 1-13 on the season and 0-4 in the HHC.
