Titans Fall in Overtime to #3 Indiana Wesleyan By: MATT ZAKROWSKI Staff Writer
he IU South Bend Titans took on Indiana Wesleyan this Saturday in the Student Activity Center, and despite forcing the #3 ranked Wildcats into overtime, lost 48-44. The Titans were behind for the majority of regulation, coming back from a 14-point deficit in the second half to take the game into overtime. The Titans were down 35-21 with 10:40 remaining in the second half, before capping off a 15-1 run with two Ashley Hummer free throws to force the game into overtime. In the OT, the Wildcats sank a pair of three pointers and went 6-6 from the free throw line to seal the victory. The Titans’ were strong defensively, holding the Wildcats to 30.8% shooting from the field, and just 23.5% shooting in the second half, but Indiana Wesleyan shot 81.8% from the free throw line, while poor free throw shooting hampered IU South Bend. “We were 14-22 from the Free Throw line, and if we get a couple more free throws or one or two fewer turnovers, this is a whole different game, but that’s what basketball is,” head Coach Steve Bruce said after the game, “We played the game exactly the way we wanted to play it. We wanted to keep the score in the low forties. They (Indiana Wesleyan) have a chance to win the National Championship.” Leading contributors for the Titans were Katie Hacker, who led the Titans in scoring and rebounding with 11 points and 8 boards, and Lizzie Stapke, who contributed 10 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 assists. The 1-1 Titans will play their next game November 9th at home against Grace College. You can find coverage of that game on our website at IUSBpreface.com.
