They're going to be relying on Abby Dietert, Danielle Hubenak, Ali Marzella and Kelsey Goodell to cause some havoc Friday. All four average in double figures, with Dietert leading the way with an average of 15.5. She's also collected 21 steals and 11 blocks this season.
The Tigers are putting up a comparable 72 points an outing and are hauling in 41 boards per game.
On Saturday, Southwestern invades the Lilly Center with a record of 8-8 overall and 4-3 in conference play.
