Indiana Tech recently was recognized both as a squad, as well as individually, for solid play of late.The Warriors have won three consecutive games and on Tuesday they returned to receiving votes in the seventh regular season edition of the 2012-13 NAIA Division II Men’s Basketball Coaches’ Top 25 Poll.

The Warriors began the week with a come from behind win at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and then defeated Aquinas College at home, in a game where they never trailed.

Senior guard Antonio Cannon earned his second WHAC Player of the Week selection this month after averaging 21.0 points and 6.5 rebounds per game, including a career-high 25 point effort against Aquinas.

Fellow senior Melvin Brooks has also had a big month, putting together a stretch of three straight games with a double-doubles. The duo leads the team in scoring and rebounding this season. Additionally, Cannon tops the charts in the conference with a 0.504 field goal percentage, while Brooks is the WHAC’s leading rebounder hauling in 9.0 per game.

Defense is still the calling card of the Warriors, ranking first in the country in three-point field goal percent defense (0.265), as well as third in both scoring defense per game (55.1) and turnover margin (6.1).

Indiana Tech also ranks top-10 in overall field goal percent defense, holding opponents to less than 40 percent shooting.

The Warriors will host Siena Heights University on Thursday and Lourdes University on Saturday.
