January 26, 2010, Greencastle, Ind. — After extending their win streak to 11 with a pair of Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference wins last weekend, the 15-3 Tigers have moved back into both Division III women's basketball polls.
DePauw was ranked 12th in the D3hoops.com preseason poll and have received votes in four of the previous seven rankings. The Tigers entered the season ranked seventh in the coaches' preseason poll and moved to 13th and 20th in the next two weeks.
Two of the Tigers' three losses this season have come to Washington-St. Louis (3rd D3hoops/t4th Coaches) and Thomas More (17th D3hoops/16th Coaches').
Since the D3hoops.com Top 25 poll debuted in 1999, DePauw has been ranked in the top 25 in 121 of the 164 polls and received votes in 160 of 164.
DePauw returns to action on Friday, January 29, when it travels to 14-3 Austin College. Both squads are 8-1 in SCAC contests this year and the Kangaroos received votes in this week's D3hoops.com Top 25 poll. Tipoff on Friday is set for 6 p.m. CST in Sherman. Texas and WGRE (91.5 FM) will carry the game live.
