Men's Basketball Team Battles to One Point Win Over Rose-Hulman
December 18, 2007
December 18, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - "DePauw’s point guard Mike Moore, the littlest player on the court at 5-foot-8, made the biggest play of the game with his high-arching, tie-breaking 3-pointer with just 1:07 left on the scoreboard clock," writes Dennis Clark in the Terre Haute Tribune-Star. "Moore’s trey, followed up by a key defensive stop by his teammates at the other end of the floor, enabled DePauw to gain just enough separation and fend off Rose-Hulman 54-53 in a nonconference men’s college basketball game at Hulbert Arena on Monday."
"It’s always very physical when you play [Rose-Hulman]," DePauw head coach Bill Fenlon said after the game. "Those guys really get after you defensively. They keep you off the boards, ride you on the drives. This is a really hard place to play and a harder place to win,” added Fenlon, who formerly served as Rose-Hulman's head coach.
The victory improves the Tigers' season record to 5-2 and marks their fourth straight win in the 94 game series.
