Hinton nets 21, LHU hoops soars in season opener

LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Freshman Amir Hinton (Philadelphia/Abington) scored a team-high 21 points to lead four players in double-figure scoring, which helped the Lock Haven University men’s basketball team (1-0) soar to a 94-53 season-opening win over Penn State Fayette (0-1) at the 2016 Wolf’s Bus Lines Classic hosted by Shippensburg University.
