February 28, 2004
Memphis, Tenn. - DePauw junior forward Amy Argetsinger and head coach Kris Huffman earned the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference's Player and Coach of the Year honors, respectively, in voting by the conference's 10 head coaches. The announcement was made during the SCAC tournament semifinal game at Rhodes.
Argetsinger finished the regular season ranked sixth in the conference with 15.1 points per game, seventh with 6.4 rebounds per contest and seventh in free throw percentage at 71.5 percent. The St. Louis native is the second DePauw women's player to earn the award. Kelly Morrison won the honor after the 1998-99 season.
She enters tonight's SCAC semifinal game needing just 20 points to become the seventh player in school history to score 1,000 in her career and just the second to accomplish it in her junior season. Argetsinger was a first team all-SCAC selection last year and the Newcomer of the Year in 2002.
Huffman, the 2002 Division III Coach of the Year and DePauw's winningest coach, has directed the Tigers to their seventh 20-win season in the last eight years and has posted a 218-70 overall record in 11 seasons at DePauw. Huffman was the SCAC Coach of the Year in 1999 and 2002 after earning Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year accolades in 1996 and 1998.
Junior guard Sarah Zondor (Crown Point, Ind.) and senior guard Tria Yoder (Noblesville, Ind.) earned spots on the second team. Zondor leads the Tigers in scoring with 16.0 points per contest, while Yoder is third with 8.5 points per contest and second on the squad with just over three assists per game.
