Otterbein’s Amariah Huck named OAC Women’s Basketball Player of the Week

Amariah Huck

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – Otterbein University sophomore Amariah Huck (Zanesville/Tri-Valley) has been named the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) “Player of the Week” in women’s basketball, the league office announced Monday afternoon.

A 5-9 forward, Huck turned in a pair of impressive double-double efforts last week to help the Cardinals play to a 1-1 record.

Huck turned in a career-game Wednesday at league-leading John Carroll, scoring a career-best 33 points on 12-of-15 shooting and corralling a new career-high of 15 rebounds. She finished out the week strong with a 21-point, 12-rebound effort in the team’s 78-58 runaway win at Muskingum University.

Huck shot 65.6 percent from the field over the two games and now ranks fifth in the OAC for scoring (14.4 ppg.) and seventh in rebounding (6.5 rpg.).

The Cardinals return to action Wednesday evening with a 7:30 p.m. home game against Marietta College.

Phillis, Rhodes, Bischoff lead Otterbein Men’s Basketball over Muskingum, 80-75

Jake Phillis led the Cardinals with 18 points

WESTERVILLE, Ohio – Otterbein University men’s basketball survived a back-and-forth contest Saturday evening with Muskingum University, out-lasting the visitors 80-75 in the Rike Center for a key conference win.

The Cardinals, improving to 4-13 overall and 3-7 in the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC), now hold the ti-breaker with the Muskies by virtue of winning both regular-season contests. The two teams entered the matchup tied for eighth in the league standings.

Muskingum (7-10, 2-8 OAC) used a pair of early three-pointers from Dave Brown en route to an 18-9 lead, but the Cardinals settled in and used a quick 10-0 run to jump ahead, 19-18, by the 11:00 mark.

Both sides continued to trade scores in what would be a high-scoring, back and forth first half that eventually went to halftime locked at 45-45. The opening 20 minutes saw nine ties and 17 lead changes.

“I told the guys at halftime that we are doing the things to get us in position to win,” Otterbein head coach Todd Adrian said. “Guys are beginning to take more ownership and firing each other up. They know it’s time to stop looking at me and start looking at each other.”

The matchup remained a one-possession battle throughout the opening seven minutes of the second half until another 10-0 Otterbein spurt, capped by a jumper off the glass from Matt Rhodes, put the Cards ahead 64-56 just beyond the midway point of the period.

The Muskies stayed close, eventually closing to within three points (74-71) after a jumper from Clay Owings with 2:07 showing on the second-half clock. An offensive tip-in from Otterbein’s Andy Yazrombek on the other end bumped the lead back to two possessions, and two key defensive stops coupled with four made free throws from Jake Phillis helped seal the team’s first home win of the season.

Phillis and Rhodes scored 18 and 17, respectively, to lead five Cardinals finishing in double figures. Jake Bischoff added 14 while both Yazrombek and Marshall Crum chipped in 10.

“I think Matt (Rhodes) is comfortable again and has righted some of the adversity he had earlier in the season,” Adrian said. “He brings a mental toughness that we sometimes lack. Jake (Phillis) is starting to lead this team and I feel more and more comfortable leaving theball in his hands. He’s still a freshman but is continuing to learn and make positive plays.”

The Cardinals shot a solid .547 from the field while limiting the Muskies to a .385 output. Otterbein had a 40-24 advantage on points in the paint and a 31-9 edge in bench scoring.

Logan Kimble recorded a game-high 23 points for Muskingum and Brown finished with 19 in the losing effort.

Otterbein will hit the road to begin next week’s action, traveling to Marietta College Wednesday evening for a 7:30 p.m. tip-off. The Pioneers previously earned a 109-72 victory in Westerville back on December 4.



Point guard Chelsea Reed helps lead second half run in Otterbein Women’s win at Muskingum, 78-58

Chelsea Reed

NEW CONCORD, Ohio – The Otterbein University women’s basketball squad got a bit of revenge Saturday afternoon, running away in the second half to earn a 78-58 win at Muskingum University.

The Cardinals, having lost to the Muskies earlier this season at home, improve themselves to 7-10 overall and 3-7 within the Ohio Athletic Conference.

Otterbein trailed throughout most of the first half before jumping ahead at 28-26 after freshman Cheyenne Hartley-Carr knocked down a trifecta at the 2:46 mark.

Muskingum (4-12, 2-8 OAC) scored the last four points of the half to take a slim 30-28 lead at the break, but the second half would belong to the Cardinals.

Junior Mary Corbett scored 17 of her career-high 27 points after intermission, burying a three-point on Otterbein’s first possession to help set the tone.

The Muskies kept it a one-possession battle as the game clocked moved under 12:00, but Otterbein would embark on a 24-6 run spanning the next six minutes to open a 21-point lead. The hosts would get no closer than 15 the rest of the way as Otterbein cruised to victory.

Corbett scored her career-high 27 on an 8-of-11 effort from the field, which included five three-pointers and a perfect 6-of-6 mark at the free-throw line. Sophomore Amariah Huck finished out an impressive week by contributing another double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds.

Point guard Chelsea Reed managed the game nicely from her lead guard position, dishing out a season-high 12 assists to go along with eight points and three steals.

The Cards shot 46.6 percent from the floor while limiting Muskingum to 29.6 percent on the other end. Otterbein finished with a 27-9 edge in points off turnovers and forced the Muskies into shooting 7 of 27 from beyond the arc.

Otterbein will return home to begin action next week, hosting Marietta College Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. The Cards narrowly fell, 71-69, earlier this season to the Pioneers when a potential game-winning three-pointer from Madi Miller just missed the mark at the buzzer.
