Tigers Knock off Crusaders 67-54; improve to 2-1

     GREENCASTLE, IND.- An 8-0 run over a five-minute stretch of the second half took the Tigers from a 51-50 lead to a 59-50 advantage and propelled them to a 67-54 win over one of Division III's perennial powers - Capital University.
     The visitors led by as many as nine at 13-4 just five minutes into the contest, but the Tigers clawed back to finally tie the game at 19-19 with 8:25 remaining in the first half. The game was tied four times in the half before the Tigers pulled away for a 35-32 lead at the break
     The Tigers built the margin to eight at 49-41 with 12 minutes left on Erin Wolfe's layup, but the Crusaders eventually closed the gap to 51-50 on Jessica Fulton's layup at the 9:41 mark. Susan Bender buried a jumper from in front of her team's bench with 7:58 left to make it 53-50 and it stayed that way for nearly two minutes. Kelly Bailey's jumper followed by Kelly Morrison's basket and another two from Bailey made it 59-50 Tigers with 4:50 left.
     Capital got no closer than eight as they missed a pair of front ends of one-and-one free throw attempts before hitting a third. The Tigers, meanwhile hit their last six from the charity stripe over the final 1:31.
     "This was a great win for our program even though Capital is a young team this season," DePauw head coach Kris Huffman said. "We made a lot of mistakes, but didn't let them bother us."
     Kelly Morrison led the Tigers with 14 points, while Susan Bender and Erin Wolfe each scored 10. Kelly Bailey, in her first collegiate start, scored eight points and grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds. Amy Strine led Capital with 17 points with Fulton chipping in 13. Bender added a game-high six assists.
     "I thought Kelly Bailey stepped up and did a nice job for us in her first start," Huffman added. "Kirstin Rhinehart also did a good job off the bench."
     The Tigers improved to 2-1, while Capital fell to 3-1. The Tigers travel to Marian on Tuesday evening for a 7 p.m. game.

TIGER NOTES: The loss for Capital was just their 20th against 199 wins since the beginning of the 1990-91 season, The Crusaders were 29-4 last year and advanced to the national semifinals for the fourth time in five years (championships in 1994 and 1995) ...
