Sponsored and hosted by DePauw the tourney "will feature the Tigers, Earlham, Anderson and Thomas More. DePauw will face Earlham in the first round of the Classic Format Tournament, beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday."

DePauw enters the game ranked #6 in the nation with a 7-2 record; 1-0 in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference. The tournament honors the memory of Amy Hasbrook (seen at right), a 2000 DePauw graduate who was killed in a February 2002 fire (read more here and here). "We wanted to make it an annual tournament and name it after her," says DePauw head coach Kris Huffman. "She was such a wonderful person and player."
