Hanover Men bounce back to beat Bluffton
By: Hanover Athletics, 1/16/17

In the first game of the Hanover College men’s and women’s basketball double-header, the Panthers rebounded from a tough loss with a 77-66 win over Bluffton.
With the win, Hanover now holds a 12-2 overall record and 7-1 mark against HCAC opponents, while Bluffton falls to 8-6 overall and 1-1 in conference action.
The contest was hotly contested throughout the first half with Hanover trailing 13-8 after the first five minutes. The Panthers then went on an 8-2 run to take a 16-15 lead midway through the half. The score was close throughout the half and was tied at 22 with 7:06 remaining. A big momentum swing occurred when junior Wes McKinney (Batesville, Ind.) cashed in on a four-point play with 6:24 remaining in the half, giving the Panthers a 26-22 lead. From that point, the Panthers outscored Bluffton 15-9, making the halftime score 41-33.
The second half began much like the first half with both teams trading layups for the first five minutes of the half. Bluffton rallied to bring the score within three points with 14:24 left in half. The turning point in the half came following a layup by freshman guard Logan Ratts (Martinsville, Ind.) with 12:25 left in the half that put the Panthers up six. Hanover then went on an 8-0 run to take a 61-47 halfway through the second half.
Hanover took a 15-point lead with 8:53 left, giving them their largest lead of the game, 64-49. Bluffton rallied to bring the score within nine with 4:54 left to play but could never fully recover from the Panthers’ mid-half run.
McKinney led the Panthers in scoring with 27 points, including 5-8 from 3-point range and 60% overall shooting. Senior Corey Muchmore (Cincinnati, Ohio) added 11 points and six rebounds in 24 minutes of playing time.
Sophomore guard Cam Fails (Mason, Ohio) put up 13 points on 5-8 shooting in the game. Junior guard Colin Smith (Cincinnati, Ohio) added 11 points including a perfect 7-7 from the free throw line. Ratts provided energy off the bench with nine points and four assists.
For the contest, Hanover shot 51.9% from the floor, including almost 60% in the first half. The Panthers were particularly hot from behind the arc, where they shot 47%.
Hanover also took advantage of Bluffton’s 16 turnovers, turning them into 21 points.

The Panthers will look to start another winning streak on Wednesday, Jan. 18 when they travel to Franklin, Ind. to take on Franklin College.

Hanover Women fall late to Bluffton
By: Hanover Athletics, 1/16/17
The Hanover women’s basketball team was tied at 55-all heading into the fourth quarter, but were unable to stave off the visitors from Bluffton, falling 86-81 on Saturday afternoon.
The Panthers (7-8, 5-3 HCAC) were riding a modest two-game winning streak before Saturday, but were outscored 31-26 in the final quarter. Bluffton (13-2, 7-1 HCAC) has now won three straight games against HC.
A layup from junior Allison Nash (Speedway, Ind.) gave the Panthers a 57-55 advantage just 40 seconds into the fourth frame. Bluffton however, rattled off 11 of the games next 14 points to take a 66-60 edge with 6:41 left to play.
The two sides would trade basket-for-basket until a three-point play from freshman Alexis Nall (Mount Vernon, Ind.) made it 69-68 in favor of BU, with 5:21 remaining. This however would be as close as the Panthers would get down the stretch, as the Beavers used a 10-4 spurt to go in front 79-72 with less than two minutes remaining.
Hanover was able to crawl back within three points, after a pair of free throws from Nash in the closing seconds, but the Beavers added two makes from the charity stripes themselves to capture the 86-81 victory.
Both Nall and Nash ended up in double figures in scoring with 18 and 17 points respectively. Nall added seven rebounds, while Nash helped out on the glass with six grabs.
Sophomore Claire Cromer (Wabash, Ind.) scored a team high 20 points, with 13 coming in the second half. Cromer made 7-of-10 shots from the field, while also making three of her five attempts from behind the arc.
Off the bench, freshman Audrey Wetzel (Columbus, Ind.) scored six points, while also grabbing a team high nine rebounds. Her classmate Brooke Todd (Vevay, Ind.) dished out a team high four assists, in addition to recording five points and three rebounds.
Both teams lived at the charity stripe, with the Panthers making 24-of-26 attempts, for a season high 92.3 percent shooting. Bluffton made 25 foul shots in 34 tries, 73.5 percent.
In the first quarter, HC used an 8-1 run to catapult to a 14-7 lead with 3:31 remaining in the opening period. The Blue and Red led 18-17 after the first quarter.
Hanover was outscored 22-19 in the second quarter, as they entered halftime trailing 39-37.
The second half saw the Panthers jump out to their largest lead of the game at nine points, 48-39, as they opened the half on an 11-0 run. A Cromer three pointer capped the spurt for HC at the 5:45 mark of the third quarter.
Bluffton responded however, by nearly doubling up the Panthers in scoring over the final 5:45 of the period, 16-7, as the game was tied 55-55 with 10 minutes remaining.

Hanover will look to rebound next week, when they host Franklin for a 7:30 tip-off on Wednesday, Jan. 18. The game is being advertised as a Red Out for home students and fans.
