OVERVIEW

  • After three in a row on the road, the Chargers return home for three straight, starting with a Thursday night showdown vs. Tiffin, then continuing Saturday against G-MAC-leading Cedarville
  • Hillsdale has won just twice in the new calendar year, though the last three games have been decided by an average of four points each
  • Senior forward Brittany Gray has 915 career points, neeing just 85 to join the 1,000-point club...She'd be the third member of this year's team to hit that milestone
  • The Chargers are in the middle of a quagmire of teams in the middle of the G-MAC pack...Six teams are separated by exactly one game in the standings...The top team - Ohio Dominican - is 5th in the G-MAC while the last teams in that group - Hillsdale and Malone - are tied for 9th/10th place
  • Tiffin comes into Thursday's game as the G-MAC's 4th-ranked scoring offense (72.5 ppg) and has scored 201 points in its last two games - a 108-84 win over Ohio Valley Jan. 24 and a 93-79 win over Ohio Dominican Jan. 26
  • The margin of error in the game of basketball is small, as evidenced by Cedarville ranking 4th, and Hillsdale 5th, in scoring margin in the G-MAC...Despite being one spot apart in that category, the Yellow Jackets have 8 more wins overall on the season than the Chargers
  • Hillsdale's top three scorers - Allie Dewire, Brittany Gray and Makenna Ott - rank between 10th and 14th in the G-MAC in scoring
  • Cedarville is the G-MAC's best team in free throw percentage (.790), 3-point shooting percentage (.400) and overall field goal percentage (.465)
