Rose-Hulman visits for Saturday HCAC contest

Rose-Hulman takes a northward trek Saturday, Feb. 8, for a Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference doubleheader.

Game specifics: Tipoff times are 3 p.m. for the women and 5 p.m. for the men at Stauffer-Wolfe Arena … Live audio, video and statistics are available for both games at www.muspartans.com, the Internet home of Manchester University athletics.

Spartan Shorts: MU, beginning a set of four of its final five regular season games being played at home, is tied for fourth in the conference. The Spartans and Bluffton are a game in front of Earlham and Rose-Hulman for sixth and two behind Franklin for third … A tip-in by junior guard Alyssa Smith (Bluffton, Ind.) in the waning moments proved to be just enough of a difference to lift MU (10-10 overall, 7-6 HCAC) Feb. 6 at Bluffton. Smith, battling in the paint after a missed jump shot from sophomore guard Katie Arterburn (Indianapolis, Ind.), got her fourth rebound and flipped it into the net for a 51-49 Spartans' lead with two seconds remaining. BU got another opportunity on its ensuing possession after a foul was called but could only sink one of the two attempts with less than a second remaining to see the visitors gain the victory. Junior guard Jocelyn Hamilton (Columbus, Ind.) saw her multiple-assist games' string run to 20 with a team-high four at BU. Senior forward Erynn Meiklejohn scored seven (Fort Wayne, Ind.) points to reach the 200-plus mark for the third consecutive year. She also grabbed a team-leading eight rebounds for a personal season single-game high … Three Black and Gold statistical categories rank in the conference's top 10. Hamilton's 5.9 assists per game lead the way, while Arterburn's 38 percent three-point accuracy is sixth, and Meiklejohn (No. 6 – 1.3 pg) and junior center Alyssa Hammond (Osgood, Ind.) (No. 9 - .8 pg) are each in the blocked shots' range … Manchester University has won 12 of the previous 16 meetings against Rose-Hulman which includes a 61-42 December decision in Terre Haute.

 

Anderson Series: The second edition of the annual hardwood meetings with HCAC rival Anderson University are Wednesday, Feb. 12. MU's women host the Ravens, while the men go to AU with each game having a 7:30 p.m. start.
