Manchester University continues its current five-game road trip with a 5 p.m. tip-off at Hanover College Saturday, Dec. 1. Fans, friends and alumni of the Spartans can check out live statistics and video at http://www.muspartans.com, the Internet home of Manchester University athletics.

Spartan Shorts: The Spartans (0-4) have faced top-notch competition to date, playing the No. 3 (Calvin) and 6 ranked (Mount Union) squads on the current Women's Basketball Coaches Association Division III top 25 as well as Olivet College of Michigan from the always-tough Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association and Muskingum University of Ohio from the perennially-strong Ohio Athletic Conference. MU had a near-miss in its season opener battling Muskingum back and forth before falling 67-64 and also pushed 2012 NCAA Division III national tournament sectional finalist Mount Union to the wire, trailing by as few as 12 in the closing moments of a 66-50 final. … Junior forward Erynn Meiklejohn (Fort Wayne, Ind.) leads the way through four games, averaging 12.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Freshman guard Hannah Field (Fort Wayne, Ind.) and sophomore forward Abby Lang (Indianapolis, Ind.) are two-three in scoring averaging 7.3 and 7.0 ppg, respectively. Lang's four rebounds per game are second-highest, while her three blocked shots are first. Field is also the squad leader in assists (10) and steals (eight). … The Spartans have won six of their last seven HCAC openers.

Two-Game Week: MU goes to Rose-Hulman Wednesday, Dec. 5, and Transylvania Saturday, Dec. 8. Tip-off times are 7:30 p.m. against the Fightin' Engineers and 1 p.m. against the Pioneers.
