Adrian, Mich. – The Indiana Tech women’s basketball team’s season came to a close following a 78-59 loss at No. 21 Siena Heights University in the quarterfinals of the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference tournament on Wednesday night.
The 3rd-seeded Saints shot almost 45 percent from the floor for the game while holding Tech to just 30 percent to eliminate the 6th-seeded Warriors from the tournament.
Rachael Kruse led all scorers with 24 points and Chelsea Carradine notched her eighth double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 rebounds.
Kruse knocked down a three-pointer to start to the game and Kaneisha Bass followed with bucket of her own to give the Warriors a quick 5-0 lead. But 11 straight points from Siena Heights put the Saints in front for good.
After trailing 42-30 at halftime, the Warriors opened the second stanza on a 12-3 run, getting nine points from Kruse, to cut the deficit to three at the 17:22 mark.
Tech stayed close for the next nine minutes, but couldn’t get any closer. Holding a slim four point lead, 58-54, with under nine minutes to play, the Saints pulled away and put the game out of reach with a 13-1 run over the next four minutes.
Kruse hit a season-best four three-pointers on the night and added seven rebounds. Ulyssia Richmond contributed 12 points.
Indiana Tech ended the season with a 13-18 record, 11-11 in conference play, and finished in sixth place in the WHAC.
