New Albany, IN – The Titans came out on the losing end of a 105-78 decision on Saturday afternoon at Indiana University Southeast. The Titans shot were 26-of-59 (44%) from the field and struggled to find their range from beyond the arc, converting on just 6-of-22 attempts. The Titans out-rebounded the Grenadiers 40-36 with 13 of the IU South Bend rebounds coming on the offensive glass.
In the first 20 minutes of action, the Titans did not seem to have an answer for the fast paced offense of the Grenadiers. IUS scored 61 first half points against the Titans, which is the most points scored in the first half against the Titans. IU South Bend had a lot of trouble finding good shots with a lot of their shots coming early in the shot clock. Jason Jordan (South Bend, IN) paced the Titans offense in the first half, scoring 14 of the teams 40 points.
The Titan defense picked up in the second half as they only allowed the Grenadiers to score 44 points while the Titans put up 38. The 21 point deficit the Titans faced at the half proved to be too much for them to get back in the game, as they dropped their third consecutive game.
The 105 points the Titans allowed, is the most since January 9, 2007 when the Titans allowed Chicago State to score 109 points.
The Titans committed 26 turnovers which resulted in 34 points for the IU Southeast offense.
Jordan led all scorers with a career-high 30 points on 10-of-22 shooting including 8-of-8 from the free throw line. Chris Beam (Borden, IN) joined Jordan in double-digits with 10 points in the loss.
IU South Bend will hit the hardwood again on Wednesday November, 13th as they host Goshen College at the Student Activities Center. Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m.
