No. 4 Hanover explodes for 69 first-half points in rout of Golden Eagles

By: Hanover College Athletics, 11/18/17
The No. 4 Hanover men's basketball team tallied a 69-point first half en route to a 103-49, season-opening victory over Kent State-Tuscarawas (Ohio) Friday evening.

The Panther (1-0) earned their second straight win to start a season, and have now won five of their last seven season-openers. Hanover also scored over 100 points for the fourth time under head coach Jon Miller, and for the first time in a season opener since Miller arrived in 2008-09.

The Blue and Red never trailed in the opening game of the Thomas More (Ky.) Jim Conner Classic, as they made their first four shots and seven of their first 10 attempts to open up a 17-5 advantage, less than five minutes in.

Hanover continued to grow its lead over the remainder of the opening half, finishing the first 20 minutes of play with a 69-28 lead over the Golden Eagles (2-4). The Panthers logged a .614 shooting clip in the first half, including 10-of-19 makes from behind the arc. The 69-point explosion bested last year's highest total for single half by one point.

Overall, Hanover finished with a .520 field goal percentage, while holding KSU-T to under 33 percent shooting. The Blue and Red also made 16-of-34 attempts from three-point range, marking the team's highest three-point total since the start of the 2010-11 campaign.

The Panthers played all 18 players in the second half, outscoring the Golden Eagles by 13 points to cap off the 103-49 triumph. The 54-point victory is HC's largest since a 118-65 win over Ohio State-Lima on Dec. 20, 2016.

Leading the charge offensively was senior Wes McKinney (Batesville, Ind.). The preseason first team All-American posted 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting, with four makes coming from long range. McKinney also added four rebounds in just 14 minutes of action.

Junior Nick White (New Albany, Ind.) made the first start of his career, as he recorded 10 points and a career high eight rebounds. Overall, HC enjoyed a 52-22 edge on the glass.

Hanover received a 56-point production from its bench Friday, with sophomore Kevin Williams (Edinburgh, Ind.) and freshman Isaac Hibbard (New Albany, Ind.) leading the way with 11 and 10 points respectively. Hibbard was also one of five Panther players to record at least three assists in the victory. Senior Levi Buck (Pendleton, Ind.) dished out a team high four helpers, while pitching in with eight points.

The Panthers posted 20 or more assists in five games last year, including a season-high 30 in the 2016-17 opener against Boyce (Ky.). Hanover finished with a 26-7 edge in assists Friday evening. The team also outscored KSU-T in the paint, 40-18.

The Blue and Red will look for their second straight 2-0 start Saturday, when they square off with Otterbein (Ohio) in a 2 p.m., neutral site contest.

Hanover hammers Spalding in women's basketball season opener
By: Hanover College Athletics, 11/16/17
The Hanover women's basketball team got off to fast start and never looked back en route to an 83-39 season-opening victory over Spalding (Ky.) Wednesday evening, inside Collier Arena.
The Panthers (1-0) scored the game's first nine points over the opening four minutes and eventually took at 27-7 lead after the first quarter of play. Hanover made 10 of its 20 field goal attempts, while forcing the Golden Eagles (0-1) into a 2-for-14 shooting performance and nine turnovers over the first 10 minutes.
Overall, the Blue and Red finished with a .462 shooting percentage, while holding Spalding to a .241 shooting clip. Hanover also forced a total of 27 turnovers, resulting in 25 points.
Junior Claire Cromer (Wabash, Ind.) scored 12 of her game-high 19 points in the opening period, making four-of-six attempts over the first 10 minutes of action. Cromer's 19 points fell one short of tying a career high. The junior was also second on the team with five assists.
The Panthers led by as many as 29 in the first half, 49-20, as a jumper from junior Morgan Bivins (Bloomington, Ind.) capped a 10-3 scoring spurt for HC. Bivins was one of four Panthers to record at least five points off the bench as the Blue and Red enjoyed a 29-17 advantage in bench points.
Hanover never saw its lead shrink below 25 points in the second half, and a pair of free throws from sophomore Elizabeth Lee (Brownstown, Ind.) in the fourth quarter gave them their largest lead of the contest, 47 points, at 83-36. Lee finished with five off the bench after making her only field goal attempt from behind the arc.
Sophomore Maleha Motter (Danville, Ind.) posted 17 points, with 14 coming during the second and third quarters. Motter also recorded a team high seven rebounds.
The Blue and Red tallied 20-7 and 12-6 advantages in assists and steals respectively, as sophomore Brooke Todd (Vevay, Ind.) engineered both statistical categories for HC. Todd tied a career high with seven assists, something she did twice in her freshman campaign, while also adding four steals defensively.
Hanover finished with a balanced attack offensively, as nine different players tallied at least five points, including all five starters. Senior Allison Nash (Speedway, Ind.) and sophomore Haley Huddleston (Henryville, Ind.) combined for 15 points to lead the bench scoring.

The Panthers will look to continue their formidable form this weekend, when they travel to compete in a pair of neutral site contests at the Wooster (Ohio) Nan Nichols Classic. Hanover opens tournament play at 1 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 18, against Baldwin Wallace (Ohio).

Kentucky, Louisville fans encouraged to join Seatbelt challenge
By: Rob Connett, 11/18/17
Kentucky and Louisville football fans can show their team spirit and help reduce highway deaths this holiday season at two special events in Lexington and Louisville on Wednesday, Nov. 22.

Representatives from the Kentucky State Police (KSP), the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) and Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) Insurance Company will be giving away free red or blue t-shirts to the first 1,000 fans who arrive with their seat belts fastened at Kroger Field in Lexington between 10:00 and 11:30 a.m. and Papa John’s Stadium in Louisville between 2:00 and 3:30 p.m. The shirts will feature a special message: #FinishStrong (Kentucky\Louisville) — Never Miss A Game — Buckle Up! under a stylized graphic of football laces.

The highest fan turnout wins friendly bragging rights before the annual gridiron match-up on November 25.

KSP Commissioner Rick Sanders says the events are designed to use the intra-state football rivalry to focus attention on the “Finish Strong” highway safety program, which encourages motorists to finish the last quarter of the year strong by buckling up and arriving alive.

Danica Patrick to step away from full-time NASCAR driving
By: Associated Press, 11/17/17
An emotional Danica Patrick announced Friday at Homestead-Miami Speedway that she will step away from full-time NASCAR competition following Sunday’s season finale, but has plans to run the country’s two biggest races next year: the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500.
“This will be my last season as a full-time driver,” she said through tears. “I’m grateful for all of the opportunities.”

Patrick would not reveal who she will drive for in either race next year, but Chip Ganassi Racing is the likely ride at Indy.
Ganassi has room to field additional cars — he's scaling down from four full-time cars to two next year — and would give Patrick a car capable of winning. Roger Penske and Michael Andretti both have full lineups announced for next year's Indy 500.

Patrick told AP it took her many months to come to the realization her career is all but over. Once she accepted it, the idea of ending her career at Indy popped into her head. She told her agent, and she's been working on putting together "The Danica Double" over the last several weeks.

"Nothing that was being presented excited me, then about three weeks ago, I just blurted out, 'What about Indy? Let's end it with the Indy 500,'" she said. "This ignites something in me. But I am done after May. Everyone needs to put their mind there. My plan is to be at Indy, and then I'm done."

After Sunday's NASCAR season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Patrick will be replaced next year by Aric Almirola in the #10 car, owned by Tony Stewart.

Patrick is the only woman to have led laps in both the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500. Patrick ran the Indy 500 from 2005 through 2011. Her highest finish was third in 2009, and she was the first woman to lead laps in the race when she paced the field for 19 trips around the Brickyard as a rookie.
Patrick was highly marketable early in her career even though wins were rare. She won the pole for the Daytona 500 in 2013, but finished 24th in the standings the last two seasons. She won her only IndyCar race in 2008, in Japan.
Sponsorship trouble surfaced this year, too. When no strong opportunities for next season presented itself, Patrick decided to call it a career at Indy next Memorial Day weekend.
