The Oilers hold a 23-22 advantage in the all-time series against Hillsdale dating back to the 1985-86 campaign when Findlay came away with a 74-47 victory.
The Oilers claimed a 69-64 win over the Chargers earlier this season on Jan. 19 in the Croy Physical Education Center. The Oilers led 57-46 with one minute to play in the third quarter before the Chargers went on a 15-3 run to take a 61-60 lead with just over four minutes remaining in the game. The Oilers then regained the lead down the stretch at the free throw line to secure the victory.

Findlay (15-5, 11-4 G-MAC)
Coming down the home stretch of conference play, the Oilers are in position to at least host a first round tournament game as they currently sit in fourth in the league, just a half game out of second place. Findlay has won five of their previous six games including a sweep last week as they knocked off the then G-MAC leader, Cedarville, and later defeated Tiffin.
Last week Anna Hintz averaged 23 ppg, 10.5 reb, and 2.5 assists to increase her league lead in both scoring and rebounding. On the year, Hintz is scoring 18.8 ppg and grabbing 8.9 boards per game, both tops in the conference. She is also making Findlay history as she has worked her way into fifth all-time at Findlay in scoring with 1,344 points and is already second all-time at Findlay with 793 rebounds. She is also just one block away from reaching 100 for her career.
Elissa Ellerbrock is also making her presence felt, scoring 11.3 ppg this season while grabbing 4.8 rebounds and dishing out 2.6 assists. She had arguably her best games of the season this past week as she scored 16 points against Cedarville and 19 against Tiffin while shooting 64% from the field. In those games she grabbed four and eight rebounds, respectively.
Hillsdale (10-11, 8-7 G-MAC)

Senior Allie Dewire leads the team and is averaging 14.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.3 steals per game.
