WOMEN'S BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Rose, The Woods post weekend victories

CINCINNATI — Rose-Hulman relied on a balanced scoring attack and a strong defensive effort to earn a 55-44 women’s basketball victory Saturday over Mount St. Joseph.

Senior Alisa Dickerson recorded her 23rd career double-double to lead the Engineer offense.  Dickerson scored 21 points with a game-high 12 rebounds for Rose-Hulman.

Joining Dickerson as double figure scorers were freshman Sheree Williams with 11 points, five rebounds and four assists, and sophomore Kelsey Ploof with 10 points and four rebounds.

Erika Miknius led the Mount St. Joseph offense with 21 points.  Defense and rebounding were keys to the Rose-Hulman victory, as the Engineers held the Lions to 28 percent from the field and outrebounded MSJ by a 35-25 count.

Mount St. Joseph jumped out to an early 5-0 lead, before Rose-Hulman held the Lions scoreless for seven minutes to take a 10-5 edge on a three-pointer by Dickerson.

Mount St. Joseph trimmed the margin to 15-13, before Rose-Hulman scored the final four points of the first half and took a 19-15 lead into the locker room on a layup by Williams.

Rose-Hulman built a seven-point second half lead at 25-18, but Mount St. Joseph ran off 10 straight points to claim a 28-25 edge at the 12:27 mark. The Engineers answered the challenge, however, by outscoring Mount St. Joseph 14-1 over the next seven minutes to earn a 39-29 lead on a free throw by Ploof at the 5:55 mark.

The Engineers maintained a lead of eight or more points down the stretch to secure the victory.

Rose-Hulman improved to 6-13 on the season and 4-8 in conference play with the victory. Mount St. Joseph dropped to 2-17 and 2-10 in league games. The Engineers hit the road again on Wednesday for a matchup at Anderson University.
