Rose-Hulman defense shuts down Transylvania

TERRE HAUTE — Rose-Hulman held Transylvania to 26-percent shooting from the field and relied on a balanced scoring attack to earn a 66-38 men’s basketball victory Saturday afternoon in Hulbert Arena.

Freshman Wade Stallings led the Rose offense with a career-high 12 points on 4 of 4 from the field and 3 of 4 from the foul line. Senior Julian Strickland also reached double figures with 11 points and a game-high eight rebounds.

The balanced attack also featured senior Jake Dodd with nine points; sophomore Tyler Duffy with nine points, five rebounds and four assists; senior Alec Houpt with eight points; and sophomore Jimmy Miller with seven points.

Mason Monroe led the Transylvania offense with nine points and Joe Jennings added eight points and eight rebounds for the Pioneers.

The Rose-Hulman defense was equally impressive, holding Transylvania to just 13 of 50 from the floor (26 percent) and 3-21 from 3-point range (14 percent). The Engineers allowed just five points in the first 11 minutes of play, then held Transylvania without a field goal for eight minutes during the second half.

Rose quickly jumped out to a 10-2 lead on 3-pointers by Miller and Strickland. The lead reached 18-5 with 12:03 left in the first half on a pair of Strickland free throws.

Transylvania trimmed its deficit to 23-11 on a Jennings field goal with 6:35 left in the first half. Rose-Hulman pushed the lead back to 18 points at 29-11 on a Dodd layup and maintained an 18-point lead at the break.

Rose-Hulman (13-4 overall) remains in a three-way tie for first place with Defiance and Mount St. Joseph in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference standings at 8-2.
