November 16, 2006, Greencastle, Ind. - With the return of four starters from last year's Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference championship team, the 2006-07 Tigers are the preseason selection to repeat as SCAC champions.

In voting by the conference's sports information directors, DePauw totaled six first-place votes and 95 points to finish just ahead of Trinity with 83 points and four first-place votes.

Centre was selected third followed by Millsaps, Southwestern, Oglethorpe, Rhodes, Sewanee, Hendrix and conference newcomer Austin.

DePauw earned the SCAC's fourth seed at last year's conference tournament, but won the title over Centre on Austin Brown's half-court buzzer beater.
