Spartans earn road win, move to 2-0 in HCAC

TERRE HAUTE, IND. – A late first half run Wednesday, Dec. 5, helped spark Manchester University to a second successive Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference road victory.

The guard combination of freshman Katie Arterburn (Indianapolis, Ind.) and junior Janelle Moss (Columbia City, Ind.) topped the Spartans (2-4, 2-0 HCAC). Arterburn tallied 15 points, hitting three three-pointers along the way, to go with three steals and two assists. Moss, going seven-of-13 from the field, added 14 points and also picked up three steals.

MU's big move occurred with 3:50 left in the first half. Rose-Hulman (2-3, 0-2 HCAC) held a 12-11 lead but, from that point forward, Coach Josh Dzurick's squad scored 12 of the next 16 points to take a 23-16 lead into halftime. Arterburn and Moss each scored six points in the stretch. The Black and Gold didn't stop there, either. MU scored 12 of the first 16 points in the second half, too, to hold a 35-20 lead. Dzurick's charges built the margin to as much as 17 before ending with a 53-40 win.

Ten Spartans reached the scoring column inside Hulbert Arena. Sophomore forward Abby Lang (Indianapolis, Ind.) was next behind Arterburn and Moss, tallying seven points. She also registered a team-high six rebounds.

Manchester continues its conference road swing with a 1 p.m. tip-off at Transylvania University in Lexington, Ky., Saturday, Dec. 8.

NOTES: With a perfect four-for-four effort at the charity stripe, Arterburn has now converted 14 straight free throws. … Lang has recorded three straight contests with five-or-more rebounds.
