DEFIANCE, OHIO – Sophomore center Maddy Minehart (Auburn, Ind.) tossed in a team-high 10 points to lead Manchester University in the final tilt of five straight road games Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Minehart came off the bench to tally her third double-digit scoring effort of the campaign and continue a run of play in which her per-game scoring is up nearly double (4.5-8) over the last five outings. She also grabbed three rebounds and blocked an opponents' shot attempt in a third straight contest over 18 minutes.

Junior forward/center Torrie Christlieb (Culver, Ind.) added a seven-point, five-rebound, one-blocked shot night at Defiance College's Karl H. Weaner Center. The host Yellow Jackets turned away the Black and Gold (0-7 overall, 0-2 Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference) 63-33 in HCAC action, as a 36-15 roll over the final 20 minutes broke up a tight-knit match-up that was in place over the first two quarters.

Coach Josh Dzurick's squad returns home to Stauffer-Wolfe Arena Saturday, Dec. 10. They clash at 1 p.m. with Mt. St. Joseph in league play.
