(Fort Wayne, IN) After trailing 24-15 at the half, the Titans found themselves behind by as many as 14 points in the second stanza, but rallied for a 52-51 victory over Indiana Tech. Katie Hacker (Indianapolis, IN/Franklin Central HS) led the way for the Titans, scoring a game-high 18 points and pulling down seven rebounds. With the win, the Titans improved to 9-2, and closed their extended, seven-game road trip with a 5-2 mark.
After turning the ball over ten times in the opening period, IU South Bend committed just four in the second half, allowing them to close the gap from 14 and eventually take the lead midway through. Triples by Whitney Cole (North Judson, IN/North Judson HS [St. Joseph's (IN)]), Hacker and Lizzie Stapke (Highland, IN/Highland HS) each answered Warrior buckets and pushed the Titans margin back to multiple possessions each time.
Betsy Grogan (Battle Ground, IN/West Lafayette Harrison) chipped in with nine points and seven rebounds.
The Titans return home for their first contest at the Student Activities Center in nearly a month as they host Trinity International on Monday, December 7. That game is set for a 7:00 PM tip-off.
