ROSE-HULMAN FANS: Wear your Rose-Hulman "RED" to the game if you're going to Hanover!!
TERRE HAUTE, IND. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology looks to clinch a bid in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Tournament with a win at Hanover College on Saturday at 1 p.m.
Rose-Hulman needs either a win over Hanover; a loss by Manchester to Earlham; or a loss by Bluffton to Transylvania to clinch a bid into the HCAC Tournament.
The Fightin' Engineers would earn the No. 5 seed for the conference tournament with a win over Hanover; or losses by both Bluffton and Manchester on Saturday.
Rose-Hulman’s scoring attack features two double-figure scorers in Addie Johnson (10.9 ppg) and Kelsey Ploof (10.7). Sophomore Gracie Gibbs and freshman Carrie Morris also reached double figures in Wednesday's win over Earlham.
Hanover has earned either a No. 3 or No. 4 seed for the upcoming HCAC Tournament. The Panthers will receive the No. 3 seed if Franklin defeats Defiance on Saturday, and will receive the No. 4 seed if Defiance tops Franklin.
The Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament will begin on Friday at Transylvania if Rose-Hulman qualifies for the six-team event. Otherwise, the tournament will begin at two campus sites with opening round action on Tuesday.
