TV Station On Hand for Tiger 'Sweet 16' Basketball Victory Over Carthage

March 14, 2014

"Savannah Trees took over in the second half, and so did DePauw," noted WTHR's Rich Nye in a report on tonight's 73-54 victory over Carthage College at Neal Fieldhouse. The Indianapolis NBC affiliate was on hand as the Tigers advanced to the "Elite Eight" of the NCAA Division III tournament with a win.

The Tigers advance to play Wisconsin-Whitewater tomorrow night in a rematch of last year's national championship game, which DePauw won.

The highlights, which appeared on the station's 11 p.m. newscast, are embedded below.

The station's 6 p.m. sportscast was led by a live report from the Lilly Center. Nye previewed the game and included footage from the Tigers' February 8 victory over Hiram College, which WTHR also covered. The early newscast segment can be seen below.

A recap of the contest and much more can be found at the official online home of the women's basketball program.
