Rose-Hulman men overpower Manchester; women lose close game

NORTH MANCHESTER — Rose-Hulman relied on a strong defensive effort to top Manchester 59-29 in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference men’s basketball Wednesday.

Junior Austin Weatherford led a balanced Rose scoring attack with 12 points. Junior Jason Haslag also reached double figures with 11 points.

Jordan Moss scored a game-high 21 points on 9-of-15 shooting from the field, but Rose-Hulman limited the remainder of the Spartans’ offense to one field goal.

Rose held the Spartans to 17 percent from the field in the first half to build a 30-11 lead at the break. Rose-Hulman buried 11 of 14 free throws in the contest, held the Spartans to just 21 percent from the field, and outrebounded Manchester 49-30 in the victory.

Other key contributors to the Rose-Hulman offense included junior Nate Gissentanner with eight points and five rebounds; sophomore James Pillischafske with six points; and sophomore Julian Strickland with five points and seven rebounds.

Rose-Hulman jumped out to a 27-7 lead with 7:38 left in the first half by enjoying a 16-0 run over six minutes. Knotts and Weatherford keyed the offensive effort with two three-point shots each, with the team holding Manchester without a post in the six-minute spurt to secure the victory.

• Rose women fall — At North Manchester, Rose-Hulman senior Alisa Dickerson became the ninth member of the women’s basketball 1,000-point club to highlight a narrow 46-43 women’s basketball loss at Manchester College on Wednesday night.

Dickerson surpassed the 1,000-mark with her seventh point of the night and has now scored 1,014 points in her Rose-Hulman career.

Manchester held a 12-point lead at 39-27 with 5:48 remaining after a score by Laine Mello. Rose-Hulman answered with six straight points to move within 39-33 on two free throws by junior Heather Finnell at the 2:50 mark.

The deficit was trimmed to two points at 41-39 on scores by Dickerson at the 1:44 mark and again by Dickerson with 30 seconds left.  Manchester hit two free throws, before a Dickerson layup brought Rose-Hulman within 43-41 with 16 seconds left.

Caitlyn Ailor buried two free throws to make Manchester’s lead increase to 45-41, but freshman Sheree Williams scored with seven seconds left to bring Rose-Hulman within 45-43.

Abby Schweitzer made one of two free throws to give Manchester a 46-43 lead.  The Spartans committed a foul with two seconds remaining to prevent a game-tying three-point try.  Williams missed the free throw and Manchester secured the rebound to clinch the victory.

Manchester improved to 4-3 overall and 1-1 in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference play, while Rose-Hulman dropped to 0-5. The Engineers return to action on Saturday with a 1 p.m. home matchup against Bluffton.
