Former Maryland men’s basketball sharpshooter Kevin Huerter put on a show Sunday evening, leading the Atlanta Hawks to a 103-96 Game 7 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
Huerter finished the all-or-nothing game with a team-high and playoff career-high 27 points on 10-of-18 shooting, also adding seven rebounds, three assists and one steal. He averaged 13.1 points per game on 43.7% shooting against the 76ers across the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
With the win, Huerter and the No. 5 seed Hawks advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, where they will face the No. 3 seed Milwaukee Bucks.
