OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS

FRIDAY NIGHT SNIPERS

IWU shot a season-best 61-percent from the field on 36-of-59 shooting. Indiana Wesleyan scored 44 points in the paint but also connected on 14-of-28 (50-percent) from 3-point range. The Wildcats shot 65-percent in the opening half on 19-of-29 shooting.

Ohio Christian led 15-12 with 14 minutes left in the first half. Indiana Wesleyan then went on a 56-7 run over the next 17 minutes to lead 68-22 with 17 minutes left in the second half.


TONAGEL THOUGHTS

“We are getting a lot of contributions from a lot of different guys. Our bench is growing as we have a lot of guys growing up fast. In the first half, we went on a major run with Isaiah Payton, Jonathan Mpanzu, and Seth Maxwell on the floor. That is three of our freshmen in there. It’s great experience for those guys.”
