Hanover basketball teams advance to HCAC Semi-Finals
By: Hanover College Athletics, 2/21/18
Men's Recap

Behind a 71 percent shooting effort in the first half and a combined 52 points from junior Cam Fails (Mason, Ohio) and senior Wes McKinney (Batesville, Ind.), the Hanover men's basketball team defeated Bluffton in the opening round of the HCAC Tournament Tuesday evening, at home, 88-78.
With the win, the Panthers (20-6) have now won three straight HCAC Tournament games and advance to 2017-18's semifinal round at Rose-Hulman, where they will take on the second-seeded Lions of Mt. St. Joseph. Hanover's win also marks the first time in over 10 years the squad has posted back-to-back 20-win seasons.
Fails tallied his second 30-point game in four outings, falling two shy of a career-high 32 points. The junior made 12-of-17 shots, including a pair from long range. McKinney added 22 points, while posting a team high three makes from 3-point range. The duo combined for nine rebounds as well.
Adding double-digit scoring efforts in the starting lineup were senior Levi Buck (Pendleton, Ind.) and junior Nick White (New Albany, Ind.), who pitched in with 14 and 10 points, respectively. Senior Colin Smith (Cincinnati, Ohio) added six points and a team high eight rebounds. Hanover's five starters combined for 82 of the team's 88 points, accumulating 93.2 percent of the scoring.
Hanover and Bluffton (11-15) both got off to fast starts offensively, with each side shooting over 60 percent and combining for 26 points over the opening four-plus minutes of play. The Panthers made 10 of their first 13 shots in the game to take a 24-17 advantage at the under-12-minute media timeout.
The Beavers were able to close the gap to three points, 35-32, but five quick points from Fails gave HC a 40-32 edge with less than six minutes remaining in the first half. McKinney tallied seven of Hanover's final nine points of the first half and the Panthers led 52-41 at the break. The duo of Fails and McKinney combined for 33 first half points.
The opening 20 minutes of play saw Hanover shoot 71 percent from the field, en route to its highest scoring first half since the first game of the season. The Blue and Red made 4-of-8 tries from deep in the opening half, while also going 4-for-5 at the charity stripe.
After scoring seven of the last nine points in the first half, McKinney came out with five of the first nine in the second stanza, which highlighted a 17-5 run over the first four minutes out of the break. The scoring spurt, which saw HC's overall field goal percentage sky to as high as 75.6 percent, put them in front 69-46, tying their largest lead of the contest.
A jumper and three-pointer from McKinney later in the half gave the Panthers two more 23-point advantages, with the latest coming at the nine-minute mark, 80-57. Bluffton rallied to score the final 10 points of the game, but HC held on for its seventh straight win over the Beavers.
Overall, Hanover finished with a .632 shooting clip, making 36-of-57 field goals. Bluffton shot over 50 percent in the first half, but a stifling Panther defense lowered the Beavers' end-game total to .469.

Women's Recap
Sophomore Maleha Motter (Danville, Ind.) broke the single season program record for total rebounds and the Hanover women's basketball team defeated Earlham at home Tuesday evening, 69-58, to advance to the HCAC Tournament Semifinals this weekend.
Motter entered Tuesday 13 rebounds shy of breaking the 10-year-old record held by Molly Martin (289). As the clock struck 1:00 remaining in the fourth quarter, the sophomore snatched her 13th rebound on the offensive glass to secure the record. She finished with a game high 14, giving her 291 rebounds for the season.
Motter also tallied a team high 19 points, including 12 in the second half. The sophomore made 5-of-11 field goal attempts but did most of her damage at the foul line, where she went 8-for11.
Adding 15 points and eight rebounds was sophomore Alexis Nall (Mount Vernon, Ind.). Nall netted 7-of-8 field goal attempts, as she currently holds the single season program record for field goal percentage, .585.
Juniors Macy Walker (Indianapolis, Ind.) and Claire Cromer (Wabash, Ind.) pitched in the with nine and eight points, respectively. The two each recorded three rebounds and two assists as well. Leading Hanover in helpers for the fourth time in five games was sophomore Brooke Todd (Vevay, Ind.), who posted four assists. Todd also led the squad in steals with three.
Leading by one-point midway through the opening quarter, Hanover finished the frame on a 14-2 run, including the final nine points, to take a 23-10 lead. The Blue and Red made 9-of-15 attempts from the field, 60 percent, while holding the Quakers to a .313 shooting clip over the first 10 minutes of play.
Earlham (7-19) opened the second quarter with a three-pointer, but the Panthers responded with the game's next 10 points, extending their advantage to 20 points, 33-13, with 4:41 left before intermission. Hanover led by as many as 21 points in the opening half, 36-15, which would be its largest lead of the game. Behind 23 combined points, on 9-of-13 shooting, from Cromer, Motter and Nall, HC led 39-21 at the break.
The Quakers scored 14 of the first 18 points in the second half to close the gap to single digits with a little less than four minutes to go in the third quarter. Hanover however, was able to push its advantage back to 11 points, 55-44, by the end of the period.
Again, Earlham was able to close within nine points at the start of the fourth, but the Panthers answered back with a 7-0 scoring spurt to take a 62-46 lead with 5:43 remaining. The 16-point advantage would tie for the team's largest over the final six minutes, as HC stymied any threat of a comeback with its fifth straight win over the Quakers.
Despite a cold shooting fourth quarter, Hanover still outshot Earlham, .455 to .393. The Panthers did make 10-of-14 free attempts in the second half to finish the game at 15-for-21, 71.4 percent.
The Blue and Red will return to the HCAC Tournament Semifinals for the first time since 2014-15, and a win Friday would tie that squad and the current one for the most victories in any of the past four seasons, 19.

Hanover will square off with the weekend host and No. 1 seed, Rose-Hulman, with a chance to play for the conference tournament championship on the line. The Panthers and Engineers will tip off Friday, Feb. 23, at approximately 6:30 p.m., following Hanover men's basketball's 4 p.m. semifinal game. The winner of the HC-RHIT contest will face the No. 2 or 3 seed, Transylvania or Bluffton, in the championship round Saturday, Feb. 24.

Hanover track athletes gain conference honors
By: Hanover College Athletics, 2/21/18
The Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference announced its all-league recipients Wednesday afternoon, as the Hanover women's track & field team picked up nine total awards.
Highlighting the awards for the Panthers were sophomore Eve Galbreath (Vevay, Ind.) and junior Erin Trimpe (New Palestine, Ind.), who both received second team honors for their performances at the HCAC Indoor Championships this past weekend. Galbreath placed second in both the shot put and weight throw, setting new personal records and improving upon her second place rankings all-time at HC with distances of 11.58m and 14.58m, respectively. Trimpe tied her own school record height of 3.58m in the pole vault, as she also logged a second place finish last weekend. Both Galbreath and Trimpe are receiving their first indoor all-conference accolades after being named to the outdoor first team last spring.
Junior Teal Burnett (Marshall, Ill.) and sophomore Kenna Hunter (Mooresville, Ind.), 2017 indoor first team selections, both tabbed honorable mention this winter. Burnett's 400m time of 1:02.06 was good enough for third at the conference meet and she later joined Hunter in the 4x200 and 4x400m relay events, which both finished third. Hunter scored in a total of six events at the conference championships, including the high jump, where her mark of 1.48m was nearly good enough to move her into the top five in school history.
Joining Burnett and Hunter on both sprint relays was freshman Sydney Claypoole (Mt. Sterling, Ky.). Senior Casey Pennell (Indianapolis, Ind.) was the fourth member on the 4x200 team and sophomore Morgan West (Connersville, Ind.) was included in the 4x400 quartet. The two groups ran times of 1:49.23 and 4:18.42, respectively, as Claypoole, Pennell and West all picked up their first indoor all-conference awards. The 4x200 time was also good enough to move into second all-time at Hanover.
Another Panther picking up her first all-conference award was sophomore Michelle Witt (Carmel, Ind.), who was named to the honorable mention team after a third place finish in the triple jump. In just her second time competing in the event, Witt posted a distance of 10.34m, which is now the fourth best mark in school history. The sophomore also placed sixth in the 60m hurdles last weekend.
The Panthers' HCAC all-sportsmanship pick for the 2018 indoor season was junior Emily Clancy (Columbus, Ind.). Despite battling injuries for much of the indoor campaign, Clancy scored in both of her events at the HCAC championships, placing sixth in the pole vault and eighth in the 60m hurdles.
Hanover finished with 86 total points to finish third at the conference meet. Since the inception of the indoor conference championships in 2011, the Blue and Red have now placed in the top three in all but one season.

Junior Jacob Hedrick (Memphis, Ind.) and sophomore Hayden Veach (Shelbyville, Ind.) highlighted nine total HCAC Indoor all-conference awards for the Hanover men's track & field team Wednesday afternoon.
The Panthers, who tied their best finish ever at the indoor conference meet this past weekend, placed third overall with 86.5 points. Hanover's second top three finish in three years was led by Hedrick and Veach, who garnered second team accolades for their performances at Anderson University last Saturday.
Hedrick competed in a pair of distance events at HCAC Championships, setting new personal records with second and fifth place finishes in the 5K and 3K, respectively. The junior's 5K time of 15:25.30 was good enough to earn him the second team honors, while his 3K mark of 8:59.97 moved him into third all-time at HC.
Veach was tabbed second team after placing second in the one mile run. The sophomore raced across the track in 4:28.18, picking up his second straight indoor all-HCAC award. Veach's indoor campaign was also highlighted by a pair of record-breaking performances in the mile and 800m runs earlier this winter.
Junior Joe Sheryak (Greenwood, Ind.) and freshman Reece Hunter (Mooresville, Ind.) also picked up top three individual finishes last weekend, earning them honorable mention accolades. Sheryak, who placed in five total events, including all three jumps, finished third in the high jump with personal record height of 1.83m. Hunter crossed the finish line in the 400m at 51.13 seconds, moving him into the top three in school history.
The sophomore was joined by classmate Samuel Pyle (Goshen, Ky.), senior Andrew Strong (Poland, Ind.) and junior Darrell Payne (Indianapolis, Ind.) in the 4x400m relay, which placed third overall, awarding the other three members with honorable mention accolades as well. The trio of athletes joining Hunter in the 4x400, were also in the 4x200m relay group that was fourth at the conference meet. Payne added top five individual finishes in the 200 and 400m races as well.
In his first HCAC Indoor Championships, freshman Alex Maldeney (Fort Wayne, Ind.) earned a third place finish in the 60m hurdles, to be tabbed to the honorable mention team. Maldeney improved upon his prelim time at the conference meet by nearly two-tenths of a second in the finals' run, scoring a new PR at 8.78 seconds, keeping him third in program history.
Classmate Jordan Blankman (Monticello, Ind.) picked up Hanover's HCAC all-sportsmanship pick as well. Blankman, who competed in a bevy of events this winter, saw his first conference championship meet highlighted by a sixth place finish in the distance medley relay.

The Panthers will return to action this upcoming weekend, as a select number of athletes will compete in Anderson's Fred Wilt Invitational Saturday, Feb. 24.

NCAA forces Louisville to give up National Championship
By: Associated Press, 2/20/18
Louisville must vacate its 2013 men's basketball title following an NCAA appeals panel's decision to uphold sanctions against the men's program in the sex scandal case.
The Cardinals will have to vacate 123 victories including the championship, and return some $600,000 in conference revenue from the 2012-15 NCAA Tournaments.

The decision announced on Tuesday by the governing body's Infraction Appeals Committee ruled that the NCAA has the authority to take away championships for what it considers major rule violations. It also refuted Louisville's position that the NCAA exceeded its boundaries and didn't follow its own precedent established in other cases and said in an eight-page decision that ended, "the penalties are upheld."

"I cannot say this strongly enough: We believe the NCAA is simply wrong," Louisville interim President Dr. Greg Postel said in a statement. "We disagree with the NCAA ruling for reasons we clearly stated in our appeal. And we made a strong case - based on NCAA precedent - that supported our argument."

Louisville now must forfeit its third NCAA title, victories and income from 2012-15, part of the timeframe during which the violations occurred. The decision culminates the governing body's investigation that followed allegations in a 2015 book by escort Katina Powell that former Cardinals basketball staffer Andre McGee hired her and other dancers to strip and have sex with recruits.

"From Day One, the university has admitted that the actions of the former operations director and any others involved under previous leadership were offensive and inexcusable," Postel said in the statement. "That is why we apologized immediately, cooperated fully with the NCAA, self-imposed penalties that were appropriate to the offenses and made significant changes to ensure incidents like this never happen again.
"Under the NCAA's own rules, this cooperation should have been a factor in the severity of the punishment. Instead, it was ignored."

The school's own investigation into the allegation revealed that violations occurred and resulted in a self-imposed postseason ban nearly two years ago. Louisville later imposed scholarship and recruiting restrictions in an effort to mitigate further NCAA discipline.
A lot changed at Louisville in the months following the NCAA penalties. Pitino was placed on unpaid administrative leave and Jurich on paid administrative leave on Sept. 27 following the school's involvement in the FBI probe that initially involved the arrests of 10 people.

Wayne will become the 15th honoree in the Ring of Honor, joining other Colts greats: owner Robert Irsay (1996), WR-Bill Brooks (1998), head coach Ted Marchibroda (2000), OL-Chris Hinton (2001), QB-Jim Harbaugh (2005), “Colts Nation” (2007), head coach Tony Dungy (2010), WR-Marvin Harrison (2011), RB-Edgerrin James (2012), RB-Eric Dickerson and RB-Marshall Faulk (2013), C-Jeff Saturday (2015), general manager Bill Polian (2016) and QB-Peyton Manning (2017).
