Hillsdale vs. TU men
January 10, 2013 - Zach Baker
Anthony Manno made three consecutive 3s from the wing, helping Hillsdale to an 18-16 lead over the Dragons here in the early going.
And the offensive problems continue to plague TU. It hasn't scored in five minutes and trails the Chargers 20-16. The upside is Hillsdale hasn't scored much either. Mike Boan had eight early points for Dragons. 9:56 remains in the half.
Hillsdale is killing the Dragons, picking holes in their defense annd finding open 3-pointers. They have seven in the first half, and we're not even at the seven minute mark. In addition, TU has turned the ball over six times. It's been something we've seen over the past few games. TU doesn't create much offense in the first half, and gives up 3s on defense. The result is a hole TU hasn't been able to get out of. Right now Hillsdale leads 36-24. 6:13 remains in the half.
Dragons will have to dig themselves out of a hole again. They were down by as many as 19 moments ago, now down 43-27 with 3:57 left in the half. Hillsdale has been hot, but its had open shots.
Tiffin trails 61-40 with 14:44 left in the half. Barring a huge comeback, TU will drop its third straight GLIAC game.
We're down to 9:56 left, and TU is down 76-50. Hillsdale is executing very well, but at some point TU has got to turn this around or it's gonna be a difficult second half of the season. Oh, and it plays Findlay next.
Dragons down 87-66 with 4:59 left.
FINAL: Hillsdale 96, Tiffin 78.
