Indiana Tech rallied from a nine-point first half deficit Wednesday to beat Aquinas 82-72 at the Schaefer Center in Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference men’s basketball action.

Miles Robinson scored a game-high 25 points while grabbing six rebounds and dishing out five assists, while center Scott Schwieterman notched his second double-double of the season with 20 points and 10 rebounds, tying his season-best in both categories. Senior guard Jantzen Goodwin added 12 points, while forward Lavonte Davis totaled 10 points, seven rebounds and four blocks.

The Saints (6-7, 3-3 WHAC) raced out to a 16-8 run over the first six and a half minutes and extended their lead to as many as nine points with 7:29 remaining in the opening half. However, the Warriors (7-4, 4-2) got a pair of 3-pointers from Goodwin as part of a 13-8 run to trim their deficit to a couple of points.

Aquinas answered by taking a 38-31 lead late in the half, but again Indiana Tech fought back and a 3-point play by Robinson at the halftime buzzer gave it a 39-38 lead at the break.

That momentum continued into the second half, as the Warriors got a couple of 3’s from Robinson to open the second half and Goodwin added another for a 49-43 Warrior advantage.

Schwieterman then took off on a 7-0 run by himself to extend the lead, while Robinson added another quick five points to give Indiana Tech a 61-47 lead that it would never relinquish.

Indiana Tech is now in fourth place in the league, one game behind Davenport and Northwestern Ohio and a pair of games behind Cornerstone.

The Warriors will travel to Lourdes Saturday at 3 p.m.
