TIGER MEN WIN EIGHTH STRAIGHT; TOPPLE MARIAN IN DEFENSIVE BATTLE

	Crawfordsville, Ind.-- The DePauw men's basketball team opened the 
second half with an 11-0 scoring run in the first 3:25 to move from a 28-24 
halftime lead to a 39-24 cushion. From that point the lead stayed in double
digits and the Tigers came home with a 65-48 win. The victory in the
Tiger/Little Giant Classic was the eighth straight for the 8-2 Tigers, while
the loss dropped Marian to 7-5.
	The two teams hooked up in a defensive, physical game in the first
half and the lead changed hands 10 times. After taking a 12-5 lead in the
first six minutes, the Tigers watched the Knights score the next 11 to take a
four-point lead. DePauw trailed 22-21 with 3:29 left, but outscored Marian 7-2
in the closing minutes of the half.
	Craig Stewart opened the second half with a three-pointer before Matt 
McCollum and Ryan Miller scored buckets. Another McCollum score and two 
from Brad Stevens gave the Tigers the 15-point lead and all they needed.
	McCollum finished with a career-high 20 points and grabbed a
career-best nine rebounds. The Tigers hammered Marian on the board by a 43-28
count and grabbed 15 off the offensive glass. Ryan Hooker and Craig Stewart
each scored 11 with Hooker hauling down eight rebounds. Scott Miller led
Marian with 14.
	The Tigers' eight-game win streak is their longest since the 1989-90 
squad won 13 in a row before losing in the NCAA Division III championship 
game.
	DePauw travels to Oglethorpe University in Atlanta for a tournament on 
December 29-30. They open play at 9 p.m. on the 29th against Ohio Northern.
