January 29, 2009
January 29, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — "The DePauw women's basketball team heads into this weekend's SCAC games with a little more confidence than last week," begins a story in today's Banner-Graphic. "After knocking off Hendrix 80-71, the Lady Tigers have moved back into the Top 25 in the D3hoops.com poll at No. 23 and No. 24 in the USA Today/ESPN Division III top 25 coaches poll. It couldn't come a better time as DePauw takes on Trinity University Friday night at 6 p.m. in the Lilly Center and then takes on Southwestern Sunday at 1 p.m."
Dan Shelton points out that the women's team has won 12 in a row and stands 7-1 in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference record. "Right now DePauw, Trinity, and Oglethorpe are in a three-way tie for the best record in the SCAC."
Another article in the Greencastle newspaper previews the men's team's Friday 6 p.m. matchup with #8 Trinity, and Sunday's noon contest versus Southwestern. "After going 8-1 over its last nine games, the DePauw men's basketball team will look to get back on track," reports Caine Gardner, noting that the Tigers' 8-game winning streak was snapped by Hendrix last weekend in Arkansas, 78-67. The men's team is 13-5 overall and 6-2 in the SCAC.
This weekend's games can be heard live on student radio station WGRE (91.5 FM or via this link).
