Spartan Shorts: The Spartans take a 7-10 overall and 6-4 conference record into Wednesday's game. … With a win earlier this year at Terre Haute included, MU has won five of the last six in the series. … Clutch free throw shooting from the underclasswoman duo of sophomore guard Jaimie Childress (Indianapolis, Ind.) and freshman guard Katie Arterburn (Indianapolis, Ind.) proved the difference in a 47-41 win at Mt. St. Joseph's Jan. 19. Childress canned one-of-two and Arterburn followed with four in a row over the final 34 seconds. ... The win, which opened the second half of the 2012-13 HCAC calendar, was the Spartans' seventh straight in the series and kept Dzurick's crew in fifth on the league standings chart, close on the heels of a third-place tie between Hanover and Defiance. … Arterburn, with 11 points, recorded her fifth double-figure scoring game in the last six contests, while sophomore forward Abby Lang (Indianapolis, Ind.) recorded eight rebounds for the third time this year in a game. ...  Childress enters the week having registered 11 straight multiple-rebound games and back-to-back eight-rebound contests. ... Sophomore guard Jocelyn Hamilton (Columbus, Ind.) is averaging 3.5 assists per game over the span of the last two Black and Gold outings. … Six categories on the current HCAC stat report feature Spartans within the top 15. Childress leads the conference in three-point field goal percentage at 44.4, while Arterburn is sixth (28.7), sophomore center Alyssa Hammond (Ossian, Ind.) is among the top 10 of blocked shots (T-9th - .6 pg), junior forward Erynn Meiklejohn (Fort Wayne, Ind.) is 15th in rebounding (5.3 pg), freshman guard Hannah Field (Fort Wayne, Ind.) is 11th in assists (2.5 pg), and Arterburn is tied for 12th in steals (1.6 pg).
