Manch ROSE-HULMAN MBB1

Logan Willoughby buried perimeter jumpers to help lift the Spartans to their fourth straight victory.

The Manchester University men’s basketball team delivered another scrappy performance inside of Stauffer-Wolfe Arena on Wednesday evening. The Black and Gold overcame an 11-point deficit in the second half and held on late for a gritty 73 to 69 victory over the Fightin’ Engineers of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

After an evenly played first half, the Fightin’ Engineers opened the second period on an 11 to zero run to grab a 47 to 36 advantage. Manchester immediately responded with a nine to zero run of its own over the next two minutes of action, whittling Rose’s lead to just a basket, 49-47.
