December 22 vs. Harrison
Alex Hannah scored a career-high 25 points and Milford turned back a second half comeback attempt by Harrison as the Eagles picked up a 50-42 non-conference victory over the Wildcats. Hannah was outstanding all night, knocking down 7 of 13 field goals and 9 of 10 from the floor in establishing a new personal-best. The senior has made 88% of his free throws this season, ranking atop the ECC leaderboard among qualifying players.

The first half was tightly contested with a jumper by Hannah just before the buzzer sending the Eagles into the locker room up 28-24. The Eagles opened the second half with a 9-2 run that extended the lead to a game-high 11 with just over 3:30 remaining in the period. Harrison quickly responded, running off 10 straight points to draw with a point in the final minute of the third.

The fourth quarter was sluggish for both squads with Milford making just 1 of 9 shots and Harrison 2 of 9. But Hannah made all six of his free throw attempts in the quarter, sealing Milford’s fourth win of the season.
