Husson Men Advance to NAC Semifinals

Monty Rand Photography

The second-seeded Husson Eagles men’s basketball team advanced to their 18th conference semifinal in the last 19 seasons with an 81-69 win over Johnson State on Tuesday night. Husson improves to 18-8 while Johnson State ends their season at 9-17.

Senior Marc Zaharchuk led the Eagles with a game-high 20 points and eight rebounds. Teammate and fellow senior Eric Modica chipped in 12 points, 5 assists,  and a game-high 9 rebounds, and senior Wes Murphy scored 11 points.

The Eagles shot 37 percent from the field in what proved to be a close first half. Husson kept the lead, but the Badgers fought them basket-for-basket and brought it within two points heading into the half, 34-32. Johnson State came out fighting in the second half and tied it up at 39-39 off a Cory Chase jumper before taking the lead at 47-46.

It was a back-and-forth game until Husson grabbed a 65-58 lead off a Corey Wood three-pointer with 6:45 left, and the Eagles pulled away to an 81-69 victory.
