The Conway, Arkansas newspaper reports, "The Tigers (12-3, 5-1) used major spurts at the end of the first half and the beginning of the second half to power to a 65-52 over the Hendrix women at Grove Gymnasium. It started a Tiger sweep on Garrison Court as the DePauw men turned by one of the best efforts by the Hendrix men of the season, 89-81."

The Tiger men are now 11-4 overall and 4-2 in the SCAC.

"It came down to discipline and they were more disciplined than we were," Hendrix women's coach Thad McCracken tells the newspaper. "They got good shots, they worked the ball around. They shot layups. And it looked like we backed down form the challenge and that disappointed me. I thought we were tougher than that."
