(HILLSDALE, Ohio) – It’s tournament time once again as Lake Erie makes its second consecutive trip to the postseason as the No. 6 seed in the G-MAC Tournament. The Storm (17-12, 12-8) will take on the No.3 seed Hillsdale Chargers (18-9, 14-6) in a rematch of last year’s semifinals.
While the all-time series historically favors Hillsdale, Lake Erie has been on the rise the last two seasons and edged the Chargers in their last meeting a few weeks ago by way of a 53-52 decision. The Storm are looking for another result in the win column as they hope to advance to the semis a second-straight season.
Last year Lake Erie entered the G-MAC Tournament as the No. 7 seed and defeated No. 2 Walsh at Findlay.
If the past games between Lake Erie and Hillsdale provide any insight to how Tuesday night will be played, it’s that it will be a defensive battle. Both teams rank in the top three in the G-MAC in scoring defense.
