Rose women too strong for Illinois Tech

TERRE HAUTE — Freshman Josie Schmidt netted a career-high 19 points and senior Kelsey Ploof added 10 as the Rose-Hulman women dominated the paint to top visiting Illinois Institute of Technology 73-40 in nonleague women’s college action Monday.

The 6-foot-3 Schmidt scored 17 of her 19 points in the first half, shooting 9 for 16 from the field to go along with four rebounds and four blocks. Ploof added seven boards, three assists and two steals to the Engineers’ effort, which gave Rose its third victory of the season. The Engineers outscored the Scarlet Hawks in the paint by a 46-18 margin.

Abbie Marshall kickstarted the Engineers offense with a layup via a Sheree Williams assist at the 19:46 mark and the home team never trailed en route to a 43-19 halftime score. Fourteen players reached the floor for the Engineers, whose bench outscored Illinois Tech 31-0.

Just shy of double figures for Rose-Hulman were Lauren Meadows with nine points and Williams and Jamie Loving with seven apiece.

The Engineers finished the game shooting 48.2 percent (27 for 56) from the field, including a blistering 60-percent (18 for 30) effort in the first half.

Rose-Hulman won the rebound battle 46-21 as every player that reached the court grabbed at least one. The Engineers also finished the contest with 20 assists, just one shy of their season best. Loving led with four assists, while Ploof, Williams and Andi Evers each had three.

Lauren Capuano led the Scarlet Hawks with a game-high 24 points on 9-of-16 shooting, and she added nine rebounds and seven steals. Neilina Vierra and Adrianna Maron chipped in five steals each.

Now 3-6 overall, Rose-Hulman plays at 7 p.m. CST Friday at Robert Morris-Springfield in another nonconference game. Illinois Tech is now 1-9.
