Meanwhile, "The Centre College men handed DePauw its first home loss in nearly two years, winning 63-56 Saturday," notes the same story. "Centre (11-8, 7-5) snapped its three game losing streak by snapping out of its recent shooting slump. The Colonels shot 65 percent from the field in the second half and 51 percent overall. The Colonels used a 10-0 run late in the game to break a tie with DePauw, whose last loss on its home court was to Centre on Feb. 26, 2008." The Tiger men are now 15-6 overall and 8-4 in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play.
