Belanger’s Historic Day Lifts Bulldogs As Drury Classic Awaits Truman

Truman guard Hannah Belanger made history Saturday when the senior scored 36 points against Upper Iowa and willed the Bulldogs to a 97-90 overtime victory against Upper Iowa. Belanger tied for the fifth most points in a game by a player in program history. Coach Theo Dean says Belanger and fellow senior Ellie Weltha compete at a high level everyday for the Bulldogs.

Weltha is 13 rebounds shy of entering the top ten for career rebounds in Truman history with 615. The Bulldogs travel to Springfield and will play fifth ranked Ashland (Ohio) tomorrow in game one of two for the week at the Drury Thanksgiving Classic. You can hear the call on Superstation KRES and beginning at 12:45. Wednesday will feature a matchup against 1-1 Cedarville. That game can also be heard on KRES starting at 12:45. Brad Boyer will have both play by play calls.
