Fort Wayne, IN-- The Indiana Tech Lady Warriors opened their 2009-2010 home campagin with a 68-50 win over the Thunder from Trine University on Tuesday night.
The Warriors played tight defense which turned out to be the deciding factor in a fast paced game. In the first half Tech out scored Trine 34-19, to take a fifteen point lead into the second half. Latoya Noble and Yasmine Coleman led the first half with six points a piece. Each of the Warriors tallied numbers in the score column.
Trine had some potential down the stretch but with Tech's pressure, was forced to take off-balanced shots as the shot clock expired.
The second half started the same as the first, led by Indiana Tech senior, Hannah Thieke, scoring 10 of her 13 second half points during a 10-2 run for the Warriors. Tech's outstanding defense caused 22 turnovers and although Trine was on 40% of the time, wasn't given much opportunity to make a run at the win.
The Warriors will look for another win this Saurday at home against Indiana University-South Bend at 1 p.m. For more information on Lady Warrior Basketball contact Kaylee Swanson at 260.422.5561 ext. 2443 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
