Warriors win eighth of young season

Thursday, November 29, 2012 12:18 am
A dominating second half effort lifted Indiana Tech to an easy 66-34 men’s basketball victory over Michigan-Dearborn on Wednesday at the Schaefer Center in Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference action.The Warriors (8-2, 2-1 WHAC) outscored Michigan-Dearborn 42-20 over the final 20 minutes of play.

Both teams got off to a slow start in the first half, going through a stretch of cold shooting while committing several turnovers. Michigan-Dearborn (2-7, 0-3) held an 8-7 advantage at the 12:17 mark, but an old-fashioned three-point play by Indiana Tech guard Jeff Hoskins, followed by eight straight points from teammate Antonio Landers completed an 11-0 run by the Warriors.

The Warriors would eventually take a 24-14 into halftime.

Indiana Tech came out of the break on fire, hitting their first four shots including three triples to push their lead to 19, 35-16. From that point on it was all Warriors as they cruised.

The Warriors, who rank as one of the top defenses in the country, limited Michigan-Dearborn to just 26 percent shooting for the game and turned the Wolves over 21 times.

Indiana Tech shot almost 60 percent from the floor in the second half, including going 4-for-9 from behind the arc. The Warriors also held a 40-34 advantage on the glass.

Warrior guard Antonio Cannon led all scorers with 18 points, while Hoskins and Landers added 15 points apiece. Hoskins also added eight assists, while Landers pulled down seven rebounds.

Indiana Tech forward Melvin Brooks totaled six points and six boards in his return from an injury that has sidelined him of late.

The Warriors will host WHAC newcomer Lawrence Tech on Saturday at 3 p.m.
