HILLSDALE, Mich. — Hillsdale College’s women’s basketball team sank seven of its school-record-tying 15 3-pointers in a pivotal second quarter in defeating the University of Findlay 88-67 in a Great Midwest Athletic Conference game at Dawn Tibbetts Potter Arena in Hillsdale, Michigan Saturday.

The Oilers (15-6, 11-5 GMAC), who hadn’t allowed 80 points this season, surrendered their season-high in the category by 14 points.

UF senior Anna Hintz scored a game-high 22 points. Allie Thobe added 16 points and six rebounds.

Hillsdale (11-11, 9-7) got a team effort from long range as nine players hit at least one 3-pointer.

The Chargers were 15 of 29 from the arc, 30 of 65 overall.

Brittany Gray poured in four 3-pointers in five attempts and 17 points — both team highs. Allie Dewire added 16 points, four rebounds, four assists and two steals.

Hillsdale led only 19-17 after one quarter. Gray had 10 points with two 3-pointers in the second quarter as the Chargers sank 7 of 11 treys.

Six of Hillsdale’s 3-pointers came within their first nine possessions to take a 39-22 lead and by the time they were done they had outscored the Oilers 27-14 for a 46-31 halftime lead.

Findlay cut it back to single digits at 60-51 entering the fourth, but Hillsdale finished on a 28-16 advantage.
