Tigers Give Division I Northwestern a "Good Battle" in Men's Basketball Exhibition; Lose 59-48
November 12, 2004
November 12, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - "Northwestern was given a good battle by visiting DePauw through much of the first half, but the Wildcats assumed control with a 12-2 run at the end of the first half and another 12-4 run to start the second," notes an Associated Press account of last night's men's basketball exhibition game in Evanston, Illinois that Northwestern won, 59-48. The Northwestern Daily Student adds, "Northwestern coach Bill Carmody said he wanted to treat Thursday's exhibition against DePauw like a real game. He backed up his words by playing four NU starters more than 30 minutes in a 59-48 victory in front of 3,020 people at Welsh-Ryan Arena."
Carmody tells the student newspaper, "It was good because I had to keep the guys in. I wanted them to play 30 minutes. (DePauw) has a good team, and they made us play, and they made us play hard." The story notes, "The Division III Tigers caught NU off-guard with a two-three zone to start the game. The two teams slopped through the first eight minutes as DePauw clawed to a 12-8 lead... DePauw kept the game close, but a 10-2 NU run to end the first half, capped by a [Vedran] Vukusic three-pointer with time winding down, gave the Cats all the breathing room they would need."
