FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- The second half of the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) slate opened with a hard-fought loss to the Warriors of Indiana Tech (6-10, 4-4 WHAC). The 88-66 final was fueled by a strong rebounding effort by the Warriors.

The Mustangs (2-13, 0-8 WHAC), lacking frontcourt depth all season, were outrebounded by the Warriors, 40-24. The near 2-to-1 advantage on the boards helped give the home team the spark needed to pull away from the Mustangs.

Keara Marks (Detroit, Mich./Renaissance) once again led the Mustangs in the scoring column with 31 points. The massive point total was the second-largest output of the season for the senior forward.

Marks now sits at 1,233 career points – good for second all-time on the Mustangs' scoring list. Wednesday's (Jan. 2) 31-point total brings the senior to within 91 points of former Mustang Amanda DeGain's all-time record of 1,324 career points.

Arielle Edwards (Grand Rapids, Mich./Ottawa Hills) and Ciara Moore (Detroit, Mich./Northwestern) helped keep the Mustangs in striking distance in the first half by chipping in 11 and 10 points respectively.

Four Indiana Tech players reached double-figures in the conference showdown.

The Mustangs will return home Saturday (Jan. 5) to host nearby WHAC counterpart Lourdes University (4-11, 1-6 WHAC) at 1 p.m. inside Ernest T. Ford Field House in Highland Park. The game features one combined conference win between the teams.
