NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Freed-Hardeman Lions broke out of their recent 3-point slump and turned it into an 81-62 win over No. 11 Trevecca Nazarene (Tenn.) University on Monday night.
The Lions, who were shooting under 30 percent from behind the arc over their last seven games, knocked down 11-of-27 attempts tonight against a team that ranked second in the nation in 3-point percentage defense.
By contrast, Trevecca - who entered the game as the nation's top 3-point shooting team - missed on its first 13 shots from long distance.
FHU (9-7, 2-1) took a double-digit lead midway through the first half on the heels of an 13-2 run and led by as many as 16 points in the half before taking a 44-34 lead into halftime. Trevecca (12-5, 4-1) got back within nine points early in the second half, but the Lions the next seven points and never allowed the Trojans to get back within single digits again.
Ken Bingham had a big night for Freed-Hardeman with 21 points, seven rebounds, and four assists. Kyle Teichmann added 15 points off the bench in place of Zack Frey, who was limited to 17 minutes because of foul trouble.
FHU returns to the floor on Thursday as the Lions visit Martin Methodist (Tenn.) College at 8:00 PM.
