PREVIOUS GAME DEFIANCE VS FRANKLIN:

FRANKLIN, Ind. – Mason Roth hit a jumper as time expired to push the Defiance College Yellow Jackets past Franklin College Saturday afternoon 54-52 in a Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference thriller.

Franklin (6-9, 3-5 HCAC) tied the game at 52 with a three-point play off of a layup and free throw with four seconds remaining. The Yellow Jackets (11-4, 6-2 HCAC) called a timeout following the free throw.

Roth took the in-bounds pass and drove the length of the floor. The junior pulled up on the right side from about 13 feet and connected on a shot that left his hands just before the buzzer sounded.

It was two of Roth’s very important five points on the afternoon.

With DC trailing 47-42 and less than five minutes remaining, Mason Roth had a three-point play the hard way, making a lay up with the foul. Roth added a free throw to spark a DC rally.

On the next possession, Ryan Hicks followed with a jumper to tie the game at 47. Travis Schomaeker then hit a three on DC’s next possession to force a Franklin timeout. Coming out of the timeout, DC forced a turnover and Hicks converted it to points with a jumper to give DC a five-point lead on a 10-0 run.

The Grizzlies added a pair of free throws to cut the deficit to 52-49 with a minute to go and then tied the game with four seconds left.

Roth added four rebounds, two steals and an assist in the game. He also had a block.

Hicks, who started slow with just two points in the first half, finished with 10 on the day and grabbed five boards. Schomaeker also finished with 10 points, along with five assists and four rebounds.

Franklin started hot in the game, racing out to an eight-point lead over the first eight minutes. The Grizzlies made the first two baskets in the game, but Wade Wooley answered with a pair of layups to tie the game at 4. 

Wooley finished the game with five points, but also had 10 rebounds.

Franklin then ran away with an 11-3 run over the next three minutes to lead DC 15-7. The three points for DC came off of a Schomaeker three pointer.

Defiance answered with a 15-3 run of its own to take the lead late in the first half.  Noah Reed started the run for the Yellow Jackets with a three pointer. Bernard Edwards added four points off of a layup and free throws and Drew Frizell followed with another three for DC to tie the game.

Reed finished with four points and four rebounds.

Hicks gave the Yellow Jackets the lead with two free throws and Edwards added a three after a Franklin free throw to give the Yellow Jackets a 22-18 lead.

The teams then traded baskets for the remainder of the half with Frizell hitting another three and Edwards adding a jumper for DC, who went into the break with a 27-24 lead.

Edwards finished with a team high 11 points, along with three rebounds and a block. Frizell had a season high nine points in the game.

In a reversal of roles, Defiance started out the second half with a 4-0 run off of jumpers from Hicks. Franklin responded with a 14-3 run over the next six minutes to go up on the Yellow Jackets 38-34.

Schomaeker followed with a jumper and Frizell hit his third three of the game to answer with a quick run for DC, but Franklin extended its lead back to six points on a pair of three pointers and a free throw. That lead remained until DC’s 10-0 run.

The Yellow Jackets shot 20-of-50 (.400) from the floor in the game and were 7-for-23 (.304) from three-point range. Defiance was 7-of-10 from the free-throw line.

Defiance held Franklin to 38 percent shooting in the game and outrebounded the Grizzlies 38-28.

The Yellow Jackets will return to action Wednesday night at Earlham. DC will take on Earlham at 7:30 p.m. in Richmond, Ind.

PREVIOUS GAME: EARLHAM VS ANDERSON

RICHMOND, Ind. — A late run by the Earlham College men's basketball team was the difference Saturday as the Quakers beat Anderson University 73-62 on Schuckman Court in the Athletics and Wellness Center.

"It was a good total team victory," Earlham Head Coach Marcus Gill said. "I really liked the way we played defense."

Kirk Douglas began the winning rally as he scored with 3:05 remaining in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference game to give the Quakers a 61-60 lead over the Ravens (3-12, 3-5).

Michael Parker ended the run of 11 straight points with 49 seconds left as the Quakers had taken control with a 70-60 advantage.

"When we play defense like that, along with playing together, we have a good chance to win," Gill said.

Jack O'Flaherty led the Quakers with 23 points and seven assists, while three others scored in double digits.

Parker and Chris Holmes finished with 16 points each and Douglas tossed in a dozen. Holmes led the way with 10 rebounds to finish his second straight double-double. He had 15 points and 13 rebounds against Transylvania University earlier this week. Parker grabbed seven rebounds and Douglas pulled down six.

The game was tight early before the Quakers built a 19-10 lead by the 10:19 mark of the first period when Holmes scored.

However, Anderson was able to answer that run to lead 29-28 by halftime.

In the second half, the Ravens went in front 34-28 with 18:09 left in the contest before the Quakers were able to rally and tie the game at 36-36 on a 3-pointer by O'Flaherty.

After the Ravens bounced back to hold a 5-point lead, Parker scored with 10:00 left to tie it at 47-47 to set the stage for Earlham's winning surge.

The Quakers (3-12, 2-6) play their third home game in row on Wednesday as they entertain HCAC foe Defiance College at 7:30 p.m.
