DePauw, 11-1 and ranked #5 in NCAA Division III, "won their 10th straight in beating host and No. 15 Point Loma Nazarene for the title. Pruzin scored 15 in the championship game," writes Mike Nieto. Senior forward Liz Bondi, who was the tournament's most valuable player, has been named Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week.

Meanwhile, Indiana's Noblesville Ledger reports, "After missing five weeks with a broken hand Brian Oilar returned to the DePauw basketball lineup last weekDSC_7785.jpg to score 17 points in two games in the Tampa Bay Shootout.
