Newspaper Foresees "Ferocious" NCAA Tournament Matchup Between DePauw and Hope
March 4, 2011
March 4, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — "A ferocious NCAA tournament opener for the Hope College women's basketball team features a streak of Tigers the Flying Dutch know well," begins a story in today's edition of Michigan's Holland Sentinel. "Tenth-ranked DePauw (Ind.) University is standing in Hope's way for the second consecutive season and the third time since 2006. Tipoff is tonight at DeVos Fieldhouse following the 5:15 p.m. first-round game between defending national champion, No. 15 Washington University in St. Louis, and unbeaten and eighth-ranked Denison (Ohio)."
DePauw, champion of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, enters the game with a 25-3 record; Hope is 26-2.
"We can't afford any lapses this weekend," Hope coach Brian Morehouse tells the newspaper. "This is the best team I've ever played in the first round of an NCAA Tournament. If we do, we probably will lose and go home."
