HURON ó The Huron Tigers escaped with a 53-51 victory against No. 3-ranked Sioux Falls Lincoln on Friday at Huron Arena.

After leading by as many as 13 points in the opening half, the Tigers found themselves needing to convert on their free throws down the stretch.

Four consecutive missed free throws enabled Lincoln to cut its deficit to just a point, at 52-51, on a 3-pointer by Calvin Krause with 35 seconds to play.

Justin Decker broke the drought from the charity stripe for the Tigers by making the second of two free throws with 18 seconds to play. A turnover by the Patriots on the ensuing possession resulted in a jump ball giving possession back to Huron for the final 7.5 seconds of play.

Justin Decker led the Tigers with 17 points, including a dunk in the opening half. Will Carr also reached double figures with 10 points.

Adam Zwanziger and Alex Kopfmann both finished with nine points. Kopfmann helped Huron take control in the first half with consecutive 3-point field goals.
