Spartan Shorts: Coach Josh Dzurick's team (2-4 overall, 2-0 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference) seeks its third straight win Saturday. … MU has reeled off impressive road victories at Hanover (76-74) and Rose-Hulman (53-40) in its last two contests. … Though the 2012-13 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference season is still in its infancy, the Black and Gold find themselves amongst a four-way tie for the top with Transylvania, Defiance and Mt. St. Joseph all of whom are 2-0 in league play. … Several MU players played key roles in the recent victories. Freshman guard Katie Arterburn (Indianapolis, Ind.) reeled off back-to-back double-figure scoring games and harbors a run of 14 straight made free throws. Sophomore forward Abby Lang (Indianapolis, Ind.) has been tough on the glass with three straight games with five-or-more rebounds. Junior forward Erynn Meiklejohn (Fort Wayne, Ind.), junior guard Janelle Moss (Columbia City, Ind.) and freshman guard Hannah Field (Fort Wayne, Ind.) each scored in double figures, too. … After Saturday's Blue Grass State visit, the Spartans return to Stauffer-Wolfe Arena to face off against Mt. St. Joseph Saturday, Dec. 15, at 1 p.m. After that, it's back to the recent "Road Warrior" theme, as they are at Trine Dec. 18, the University of Redlands (Calif.) Winter Classic Dec. 28 and 29, Anderson Jan. 2 and Earlham Jan. 5 before returning home Jan. 9 to take on Defiance.
