Offense, bench boosts ranked Davenport

Saturday, January 12, 2013 09:01 pm
Indiana Tech could not overcome a sluggish offense and lack of bench production, as it fell to No. 8-ranked Davenport 70-52 in Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference men's basketball action Saturday.The 18th-ranked Warriors allowed the host Panthers to shoot 55 percent from the floor and that resulted in Indiana Tech's second straight WHAC setback.

Davenport's depth also proved to be a huge factor, as it outscored Indiana Tech 28-10 off of the bench.

The Panthers scored the first six points of the game and would never relinquish the lead. They extended their advantage to double digits midway through the half and eventually took a 27-16 lead into the break.

The Warriors hit just 23 percent (6-for-26) of their shots through the first 20 minutes.

Indiana Tech shot the ball much better in the second half and only committed one turnover, but could not find a way to slow down the Panthers.

Melvin Brooks was the only Warrior to score in double figures finishing with 20 points. Antonio Cannon and Jordan Hickman followed with seven points apiece in the defeat.

The Warriors will host No. 24-ranked Madonna University on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
