A Quick Look at Indiana Tech – 9-8, 6-3 WHAC – Head coach Jessie Biggs
The Warriors return home on a four-game losing skid, having recently suffer a 70-65 loss to host Cornerstone Wednesday. Both teams were tied 28 apiece at intermission but a 7-1 Golden Eagle run in the second half was the difference in the game. Tech's Ulyssia Richmond had 23 points on the night while Rachel Kruse, who is leading the team with an average of 17.5 points per game, was held to 14. The Warriors have relied on offense this season as they are second in the WHAC behind the Panthers in points per game (75), but the Warriors have conceded 71.8 to rank seventh in the league.
 
The Last Time Indiana Tech and Davenport Met
Davenport swept Indiana Tech in the home-and-home meetings last season, taking a 92-65 victory at the DU Student Center followed by a 102-64 win in Fort Wayne for the regular-season finale. The Panthers win at Indiana Tech's campus also secured at least a share of the school's seventh straight WHAC regular-season championship.
 
Making it Hard to Score
The Panthers have been keeping opponents' offense in check in seven of their last eight games, limiting all but one team to only scoring 59 points or less. Only Madonna (63) has broken the 60-point barrier in the last eight games. Among other statistics, the Panthers have committed fewer turnovers than their opponents (142-196) while collecting more steals (125-70) and rebounds (246-192).
