USA Today Previews DePauw Women's Bid to Repeat as National Basketball Champs
November 1, 2007
November 1, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - "DePauw (Ind.) must try to defend its national championship without Liz Bondi, winner of last year's Honda Award Athlete of the Year," notes today's edition of USA Today in a summary of the "top teams" in NCAA Division III women's basketball. "Three starters return, but with a new point guard."
The text continues, "Coach of the Year Kris Huffman will get a sense of where her team stands immediately. DePauw's Nov. 16-17 tipoff tournament includes NCAA tournament team Illinois Wesleyan and a potential rematch with Washington (Mo.), which the Tigers defeated 55-52 in last year's NCAA final."
The women's basketball team, which finished the 2006-07 season with a 31-3 record, was honored by the NBA's Indiana Pacers on April 18. More coverage of the the March 17 championship game -- including highlights -- can be found in this previous story.Back
