Capital cruises past AU women

ANDERSON, Ind. — Anderson University women’s basketball coach Marcie Taylor said the one thing she was certain of with her young team is that it would compete.

Despite losing both games in the AU Tip-Off Classic this weekend, the Ravens (0-2) did not disappoint.

Anderson fell behind Capital (1-1) by 27 points midway through the second half and lost 71-54 on Saturday afternoon, but Taylor was happy to see her players make the visiting Crusaders work all the way to the end.

“This team is going to compete hard,” Taylor said. “We’re still working on our rotations and lineups. We had three different starters today than we did yesterday.”

One of the Ravens’ biggest issues right now is that start of each half.

AU fell behind 14-1 at the outset of Friday’s loss against Fontbonne, and an early 10-0 run gave Capital a 12-2 lead less than five minutes into Saturday’s contest.

The Crusaders used a 17-0 run during a seven-minute stretch of the second half to open their biggest lead of the game at 57-30 and effectively end the competitive portion of the afternoon.

“We’ve gotta get better at putting the ball in the basket in the first five minutes,” Taylor said.

Led by the Wuestefeld sisters, Amy and Ashley, the Ravens cut their deficit to 13 at 61-48 with 3:22 remaining but could get no closer.

Ashley Wuestefeld led AU with 15 points on perfect 7-for-7 shooting, and Amy led in just about everything else. The senior point guard scored 14 points, grabbed eight rebounds, dished out six assists and made five steals.

It just wasn’t enough to overcome a balanced attack by the visitors.

Cookie Geroski led three Crusaders in double figures with 17 points. Jamie Caton and Monica Heckman added 11 each, with Heckman grabbing a team-high nine rebounds and Caton pulling down eight.

Capital won the battle of the boards 36-20 overall.

Anderson hosts St. Mary’s on Tuesday.

“This is a young, new group, and we’re going to grow together,” Taylor said. “We’re only going to get better as the year goes on.”

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Corner - HB Colts Notes: Thomas, Hilton hurt in Wednesday's practice After a physical practice Wednesday afternoon at Anderson University, the Indianapolis Colts are hoping they have not lost another starter. Left guard Donald Thomas hit the ground following an 11-on-11 running drill and was visibly upset when he finally was helped to his feet. He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
