Second-half defense propels Defiance to 62-46 win over Beavers

DEFIANCE — The Bluffton University men’s basketball team fell 62-46 to Defiance College on Wednesday. The Beavers slipped to 4-8 overall and 0-5 in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference, while Defiance improved to 7-5 overall and 3-2 in the HCAC.

The Beavers had a solid first half and controlled the scoreboard for a majority of the period. Junior Will Pope (Somerville/Preble Shawnee) dumped in a layup for the first tie of the game. Twenty seconds later, junior Josh Johnson (Ottawa-Glandorf) buried a triple try, giving the Beavers the lead. The Yellow Jackets wasted no time in tying the game back up less than a minute later. Junior Dustin Kinn (Alvada/New Riegel) put the Beavers on top by two at the 15:56 mark but eight seconds later Defiance again tied the game.

The Yellow Jackets went up by three for a few minutes before sophomore Ryan Ebbeskotte (Fort Jennings/Delphos Jefferson) and Kinn both converted to put the Beavers back in the lead. The visitors stayed in control until late in the stanza with their largest lead being five after a 3-pointer from senior Tyler Neal (Bluffton). Defiance used a 10-2 run to take the lead but Johnson dialed long distance with 19 seconds left in the half for a 28-28 tie at the break.

Defiance wasted no time taking control to start the second half. The home team went up 40-31 at the 16:13 mark and kept the lead for the entire half, outscoring the Beavers 34-18 for a 62-46 final score.

The Beavers were led by Kinn who had 11 points and 11 rebounds for his first career double-double. Johnson added nine points from three triples. Freshman Thayne Recker (Arlington) pulled down six rebounds.
Bluffton went 18-of-57 (31.6%) from the field, while Defiance finished 23-of-50 (46.0%). The Beavers were 4-of-13 (30.8%) from behind the arc, compared to 6-of-17 (35.3%) for the home team.

A commanding 45-28 Bluffton advantage on the boards was offset by eight more turnovers (13-5) and a miserable 6-of-17 (35.3%) shooting night at the stripe. The Yellow Jackets were 10-of-12 (83.3%). 
The Beavers jump back into HCAC action on Saturday with a trip to Hanover College. The contest with the Panthers is slated for 4 p.m. following the women’s matchup.

Defiance stays perfect in HCAC with 54-32 win over Beavers
By Jordan Marbaugh

DEFIANCE — The Bluffton University women’s basketball team stumbled out of the gate and never recovered as rival Defiance College dominated round one of the 2012-13 series with a 54-32 victory. The Beavers fell to 1-4 in the HCAC and 6-6 overall, while Defiance improved to 5-0 in HCAC and 8-4 overall.

Bluffton could not overcome a cold-shooting first half after jumping out to an early lead on a Taylor Whitaker (Mansfield/Lexington) three. When Defiance finally found the range, the Yellow Jackets put it into overdrive as they built a commanding 34-9 lead at the break.

The second half started with the Beavers going on a 9-2 run to close the gap to 36-18 with 16 minutes left. However, Defiance answered back and held off Bluffton’s rally en route to a 54-32 win over the Beavers in the Weaner Center.

Sophomore Rachel Debord (Lebanon) led the way offensively with 10 points and she pulled down five rebounds. Brooke Ruffer (Stryker) hauled in seven boards and added four points. Taylor Knight (Perrysburg) chipped in with four boards of her own.

Bluffton hit just 13-of-47 from the field (27.7%), including a paltry 18.2 percent in the opening half (4-of-22). The Jackets also pounded the boards, outrebounding the visitors 48-28.

The Beavers return to action on Saturday when they head to Hanover College. The tip is set for 2 p.m.
