  • The recent off days has thrown a wrench into the conference standings...Hillsdale is technically in third place in the G-MAC, but is tied in the loss column with Walsh (14-4)...The Chargers will play two more games than the Cavaliers in the season's final two weeks to even up the ledgers

  • Despite its recent two-game losing streak, Hillsdale continues to lead the G-MAC in points allowed per game (64.0), nearly two points per game less than any other team
  • Saturday's game is a rematch of the 2018 G-MAC Tournament Championship Game, won by the Panthers at Findlay
