TIGERS BEAT ROSE-HULMAN; SNAP THREE-GAME SKID

	Greencastle, Ind.--The DePauw men's basketball team put together one of
its best defensive showings of the season and defeated Rose-Hulman 60-45 to
snap a three-game losing streak and improve to 13-6 on the season. The win also
improved the Tigers' Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference record to 3-4.
Rose-Hulman, with the loss, fell to 14-6 overall and 4-4 in the ICAC.
	The Tigers trailed briefly at the outset of the contest but went on a
10-0 run to take a 12-4 lead with 11:18 left in the first half. That advantage
reached as much as 18 before the halftime score of 31-15.
	Early in the second half, Ryan Hooker scored the Tigers' first seven
points and Ryan Miller added a three-pointer to give the Old Gold its biggest
lead at 41-19 with 15 minutes remaining. The margin never reached single digits
the remainder of the game.
       Hooker led the Tigers with 19 points and also added eight rebounds and a
game-high five assists. Ben McCormick scored 12 off the bench and Matt McCollum
added 11. Miller grabbed a game-high nine rebounds. Kiley Gwaltney and David
Moore each scored 12 for the Engineers. Rose-Hulman leading scorer Zack Johnson
was held without a field goal in 10 attempts and scored just two points for the
game.
	Both teams were cold from the field as Rose-Hulman, ranked 10th in
Division III at 50.6 percent, connected on jut 31 percent and DePauw hit 35
percent including only 23 percent in the second half. The Tigers, however,
committed just seven turnovers.
	The Tigers travel to Anderson for a 3 p.m. contest on Saturday,
February 3.
