"DePauw is one of the hottest D-III teams in the country right now," Colleen Kane wrote in yesterday's Cincinnati Enquirer previewing the game. "The Tigers have won 16 straight games, including their conference tournament title, are ranked No. 5 in the nation in two different polls and blew away their first-round opponent by 44 points. And Thomas More (20-5), which had a first-round bye, will be the team trying to slow down DePauw (26-3) tonight at 7 p.m. at home."
Thomas More's interim head coach Jeff Hetzer tells the newspaper, "All we're hearing right now is DePauw this, DePauw that ... They don't have a whole lot of weaknesses. They're good in the post and on the perimeter ... And they're seven or eight deep, all solid."Back
