HANOVER, Ind. - An 18-point first-half deficit was too much to overcome as the Bluffton University women had their 2-game winning streak snapped at Hanover College on Saturday, 79-66.
Brooke Ruffer was spectacular in posting her 11th career double-double. The sophomore sensation hit 11-of-17 from the field for a career-high 26 points and she also ripped down a game-high 14 boards. Taylor Knight added a career-high 17 points for the visitors. Taylor Whitaker was also in double figures with 11 counters. Freshman Rachel Beining (Ottoville) and Belicia Cooper pulled down nine and six rebounds, respectively.
The Panthers improved to 11-8 overall and 9-3 in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference, while Bluffton dropped to 11-8 and 7-5 in the HCAC.
The Beavers jump back into action on Wednesday when Manchester University comes to town. Tipoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. in the Sommer Center.
