The Foresters were on the road at Indiana Tech for their season opener and put together a solid performance to earn the 67-47 victory over the Warriors.

HU (1-0) first had to shake off some nerves to overcome an early 7-2 deficit. Midway through the period, two Jenna Donaldson free throws gave HU a 16-14 lead that they would not give up. Behind Donaldson's 13 first half points, the Foresters were able to build a 34-22 half-time lead.

Indiana Tech got as close as seven in the early minutes of the second half, but HU quickly ended the threat, pushing the lead back to double digits to stay.

Donaldson led all scorers in the game with 19 points and HU's Courtney Beerbower added a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Lauren Davenport came close to her own double-double with eight points and nine assists for the Foresters. Joyell Compton was the lone Warrior to reach double figures with 11.

After shooting 50% in the first half, HU finished at 46.3% for the game. The Foresters won the battle of the boards 34-29 and forced Indiana Tech into 28 turnovers.
