In the three wins, Walker averaged 9.7 points, 5.3  rebounds and 5.7 assists while committing just three turnovers for a 5.7:1 assist-to-turnover ratio.

She scored 18 points, grabbed seven rebounds and recorded two steals in 31 minutes against Washington-St. Louis. Her two free throws with seven seconds left against the Bears gave the Tigers a one-point win. She also dished out seven assists each against Wilmington and Illinois Wesleyan.

DePauw, ranked third in the latest Division III Coaches' poll, beat Wilmington (73-44), Washington (60-59) and Illinois Wesleyan (75-52) to improve to 5-0 for the first time since 2002. Washington and Illinois Wesleyan both were ranked in the top 10.

The Tigers travel to Denison on Saturday for the NCAC opener at 2 p.m.
