October 17, 2013

"The quest to defend last season's undefeated run to the national championship began -- officially -- on Tuesday when the DePauw women's basketball team had its first practice of the season," notes the Banner-Graphic.  In a caption accompanying a photo, the Greencastle newspaper adds, "Junior Lauren Abendroth and her teammates worked in an agility drill at the start of practice. The Tigers finished last season 34-0, winning the national championship game in a blowout over the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater." (photo by Grant Wieman/Banner-Graphic)

The publication also displays a shot of the men's team, stating, "The DePauw men's basketball team finished last season with a 16-10 record and loss in the first round of the North Coast Athletic Conference tournament. They're hoping for an improved campaign in 2013-14, and that started Tuesday with the team's first official practice."
