"The Pacers organization followed with interest and pride the Tigers' historic season, and we'll be thrilled to honor these Indiana champions," says Mike Henn, director of sales development for Pacers Sports and Entertainment and 1980 graduate of DePauw University. "We encourage DePauw students, faculty and staff, and alumni to join us next week as we celebrate the team's success and, hopefully, a Pacers victory." Pacers.gif
