MU wraps up five-game homestand

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: The Spartans bring a 5-15 overall and 4-9 HCAC record into Saturday's game with the conference leaders. They are among a three-way tie for seventh with Bluffton and Anderson, just a game behind Transylvania for sixth … MU put four players in double figures Feb. 6 to highlight the game against BU. They rallied back from a pair of 12-point deficits with the second such comeback, an 11-1 stretch from the 6:01 to 00:07 marks of the second half, pulling them within 56-54. After junior guard Grant Newlin (Muncie, Ind.) hit one of two free throws, sophomore forward Jarod Schrock (Logansport, Ind.) grabbed the rebound and fed freshman guard Chase Casteel (Monrovia, Ind.). Casteel, with four seconds left, let go of a three-point bucket that rimmed out, and Bluffton converted two charity tosses to ice the decision … Sophomore forward Brady Dolezal (Tipton, Ind.) extended his double figure scoring streak to eight games, while freshman guard Blake Brouwer (Elkhart, Ind.) registered his ninth double-figure scoring effort, including his second in the last three contests. The 11 rebounds were a personal single game high and part of his first collegiate double-double. Junior forward Jon Thompson (Rushville, Ind.) ended in double digits for the eighth time in 10 games this year … Brouwer and Schrock highlight the individual rankings on the current conference statistics. Schrock is fourth in blocked shots (.9 pg), while Brouwer is just outside the top 10 in three-point field goal percentage (38.2 – No. 11) … Rose-Hulman has won the last five in the series including a 74-57 December victory at Terre Haute, but the Black and Gold claimed six in a row prior.

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.
