MANCHESTER - Shippensburg let its two-game win streak fall by the wayside when it was taken down by Northeastern, 47-41, in a non-league boys basketball matchup Saturday night.

The Greyhounds held a 36-32 with less than five minutes left, but the Bobcats finished the game on a 15-5 run to seal the victory.

Northeastern (10-6) was led by Kahlid Nwandu, who had 23 points, including 11 points in the last quarter alone.

Ship coach Ray Staver said, "We made some mistakes and had a couple of turnovers. Our execution wasn't real good down the stretch, and he basically took over the game."

The Hounds (8-8) did manage to make a game of it after being down 17-5 after the first quarter. Ship outscored Northeastern 29-15 in the middle two stanzas.

"We just got down early," Staver said. "They like to run and get you to shoot quick and get in an up-tempo game. We played much better in the second quarter and even better in the third quarter, though."

Reid Singhas led the Hounds, earning another double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds. Mac Miller added 10 points for Ship.
