The PioSphere Weekly Forecast

The Weekly Forecast
PioSphere Reporter Josh Landry

Pioneer Performance: Since the loss to Rose-Hulman at home, the men’s basketball Pioneers have had two double-digit wins, including a 91-47 win at Manchester College, with freshman Parker Stansberry scoring a career-high twenty-six points. The majority of Stansberry’s points came from beyond the arc, where he shot over fifty percent. The win came at a significant time for the Pioneers, as they maintained a tie for second place in HCAC standings.

Matchup of the Week: Men’s and Women’s swimming and diving enters its first Ohio Athletic Conference championship this Thursday. After joining the OAC in June of 2012, the Pioneers will travel to the University of Akron for their inaugural postseason competition.

Player(s) to Watch: The men’s basketball Pioneers are currently tied for second in HCAC standings with Hanover, the team they play the Wednesday at home at 7:30pm. Being the second to last game of the regular season, this is arguably the most important game of the year for the Pioneers and it will take a total team effort to come away with a win. The team has relied throughout the season on the leadership of a core group of seniors along with major contributions from freshman Parker Stansberry, and will need it all on Wednesday.
