Game specifics: Manchester University's men's team hosts Anderson University for a 7:30 p.m. tipoff at Stauffer-Wolfe Arena … Live audio, statistics and video can be accessed at www.muspartans.com, the Internet home of Manchester University athletics.

Spartan Shorts: A pair of teams sporting 2-11 overall records collides in the season series opener between the conference rivals. They're each part of a logjam in the standings, as the Ravens are in the midst of a three-way tie for sixth (2-4) and are just a game ahead of the Spartans and Earlham (1-5) … Sophomore forward Jarod Schrock (Logansport, Ind.) remains in the league top 10 in blocked shots. His average of eight-tenths per game is tied for fifth. Freshman guard Blake Brouwer (Elkhart, Ind.) is just outside the top 10 in three-point field accuracy with his 38.3 percent rate sitting No. 13 … Schrock and junior forward Jon Thompson (Rushville, Ind.) led the Black and Gold in its most recent outing, a 67-63 loss at the hands of Transylvania Jan. 11. Thompson, increasing his double-figure scoring streak to five, tossed in 13 points to conclude a 43-point week. Schrock finished with a personal single-game career high 23 points while grabbing four rebounds and dishing out three assists … Split decisions have been the norm recently against Anderson with either side getting a win against the other in four of the last six seasons.

Weekend Trip - Manchester University's men's and women's teams both take a southern journey to Hanover College Saturday, Jan. 18. Tip-off times are 3 p.m. for the men and 5 p.m. for women inside Horner Health and Recreation Center on HC's campus.
