Rose’s win streak snapped

TERRE HAUTE — Alisa Dickerson had a strong second half of women’s college basketball Wednesday in Hulbert Arena, but the Rose-Hulman senior could not get two shots to fall in the final 13 seconds of overtime.

Anderson escaped with a key road victory, 51-49, in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference action, snapping a three-game winning streak for the Engineers.

Dickerson scored 16 of her 18 points in the second half and overtime. She got off a shot against a double-team just before the buzzer sounded, but the attempt from the low block rolled off the rim.

Dickerson finished 5-of-13 from the field, but helped give her team a chance with a team-high four steals and two blocks.

“Alisa does a lot for us, but at times she was impatient too,” coach Jon Prevo said.

“We had a lot of scoring opportunities down around the basket. We just did not finish well tonight.”

Heather Finnell came up with a steal on Anderson’s in-bound attempt to get Dickerson a second chance to force a second overtime.

Finnell had hit a 15-foot jumper to tie the game at 49 with 2:10 remaining in overtime. Grace Gibbs provided another clutch shot near the end of regulation. Gibbs scored her only two points of the game when she swished a 12-foot jump shot with 25 seconds left.

Rose-Hulman got the defensive stop it needed, and coach Jon Prevo drew up a play after Anderson called timeout to set up a full-court press. Dickerson had the chance to play quarterback, hitting Sheree Williams with a one-handed pass beyond half court. Williams had an open layup, but couldn’t drop it over the front of the rim.

“Our last offensive possession in regulation to win it and there in overtime, those possessions are not what cost us the game,” Prevo said. “Anderson outworked us tonight. We gave up 15 offensive rebounds and most of their offensive rebounds came from their perimeter players. We made special emphasis to work on that the last two days, and apparently it was not important enough to do those things.”

The 15 offensive rebounds turned into 14 second-chance points for Anderson, who totaled 20 points in the paint. The Anderson guards also made effective back-door cuts to get buckets. Amy Wuestefeld, who scored on one of her three offensive rebounds with 1:50 left in regulation to break a tie, also converted off a back cut early in overtime.

Anderson center Hannah Wickard had 10 points in the first half as Anderson clung to a 22-18 lead.

Ultimately, the Engineers did not defend near the goal as well as they needed to.

“It’s a situation that comes down to, we have to have a blue-collar attitude every night, and we didn’t do that tonight,” Prevo said.

Center Kelsey Ploof had 17 points, 11 rebounds and three steals for the Engineers.
