Todd Davis is officially off the bench and he's relieved it finally happened! Davis came to Haskell Indian Nations University as the Athletic Director in July. By making a change in leadership with men's basketball during the month of August, he inherited the program until a new coach could be identified.
The men's basketball team was hoping to make it three in a row on Monday but Ottawa University held on for a 93 - 86 victory in the Coffin Sports Complex. The Braves got out to a quick start after two straight three-pointers from OU's Preston Oakes. HINU came right back with a 16 - 6 run and held an 18 - 12 advantage at the 13:42 mark.
Securing the first win of the season on Friday looked really bleak at the Bethel College Classic in North Newton. With 13:33 left in the game, Haskell Indian Nations University was down by 19 points to McPherson College and the outcome was just a matter of time. However, HINU came roaring back and stunned the Bulldogs 57 - 56.
The men's basketball team had their opportunities on Tuesday but they soon faded behind the hot hand of Midland University's Nolan Cass. The Indians took an early lead but the three-point barrage by Cass sent MU to the locker room with a 44 - 36 advantage. Cass drilled five three-pointers on the night and finished with 15 points as Midland downed Haskell Indian Nations University 82 - 68.
