January 5, 2004
Terre Haute, Ind. - Visiting DePauw, ranked 19th in Division III, shot just 34 percent for the game and 20 percent in the second half, but held on to defeat Rose-Hulman by a 52-44 score in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference action. DePauw improved to 10-2 overall and 1-0 in the SCAC with its third straight victory and its 10th win in its last 10 games, while Rose-Hulman dropped to 4-8 overall and 0-1 in the SCAC.
The Tigers led by as many as 20 in the first half on the way to a 34-16 halftime advantage, but Rose-Hulman opened the second half with five straight points as DePauw was held scoreless for the first five minutes of the half. DePauw continued its double-digit lead until the Engineers closed to within nine and eventually eight in the closing two minutes.
"I was pleased with out first half performance," DePauw head coach Kris Huffman. "I'm not sure where it went in the second half. We shut down, lacked confidence and didn't move the ball well."
Junior Sarah Zondor paced the Tigers with 19 points, while Lindsay Houin grabbed nine rebounds and Amy Argetsinger hauled down eight in the victory. Anna Hall scored 15 and Rebekah Forsyth added 13 points and a game-high 10 boards to pace Rose-Hulman. DePauw held a 40-28 advantage on the boards and grabbed 16 on the offensive glass.
