MARION, Ind. – Senior Nicole Ignasiak poured in 19 while Dayton Groninger added 14, lifting No. 19 Indiana Wesleyan women’s basketball over League foe Mount Vernon Nazarene (Ohio.) 71-49.

 

PRESSURE DEFENSE

  • IWU put the Cougars in the pressure cooker Wednesday and didn’t let them out. Despite shooting 13 more shots than IWU, MVNU finished the game 20-of-68 from the field, making just one three on 15 attempts.

 

FREE THROW STRUGGLE

  • The Wildcats couldn’t connect from the charity line shooting 13-of-25 for 55%, 16% worse than their season average of 71%. The Cougars shot 14 less from the stripe than IWU, connecting on 8-of-13 for just 61%.

 

WHALEY PERSPECTIVE

  • I was really happy with our defense in a game that was really physical. As a team, we need to continue to own the paint and own the glass.

 

NEXT TIME OUT

  • Indiana Wesleyan travels to Bethel (Ind.) on Saturday. Tip-off is scheduled for 1 p.m. in Mishawaka.
