DePauw Moves to 14th in Both National Polls
February 10, 2009
Illinois Wesleyan tops both polls with all 10 first-place votes in the coaches' poll and all 25 in the D3hoops.com rankings. DePauw dropped a 77-76 decision to the Titans on November 21. The Tigers also faced another top 10 team in Oglethorpe (ranked fifth in the coaches' poll and sixth by D3hoops.com) on December 5 and lost on the road by an 84-81 score.
Since the D3hoops.com Top 25 Poll began in 1999-2000, DePauw has at least received votes in 150 of the 151 polls and is making its 116th appearance in the top 25. The Tigers have received votes in 140 straight polls.
DePauw travels to Centre College on Saturday, February 14, where it puts its 16-game win streak on the line against the 15-7 Colonels. The Tigers enter the contest with a 10-1 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference record, while Centre is 8-3 in SCAC play. Saturday's game will be aired live by WGRE (91.5FM) with tipoff scheduled for 3 p.m.
