Tiger men headed to Kenyon

Tuesday, December 19, 2006

The 24th-ranked DePauw University Tigers men's basketball team will look to improve to 8-1 on the season as they travel to Ohio to face the Kenyon Lords.

DePauw is coming off of an 84-63 win against Illinois Tech Sunday and will attempt to hand the Lords their third loss in a row. DePauw is riding the crest of a six-game winning streak as it meets Kenyon.

DePauw is being led by Stephen Schott who is averaging 17 points a game and pulling down nine boards a game. Austin Brown is a close second with 16.5 points a game and has 10 steals on the season.

Brown scored a career-high 27 points in the Tigers' last game and Schott had 10 points and 10 rebounds .

DePauw is averaging 81 points a game while shooting 50 percent from the floor and 43 percent from beyond the arc.

One thing the Tigers will have to contend with is a Kenyon team that is taller in the paint.

DePauw will try to counter Kenyon's size with speed. Mike Moore, who averages 13 points, three rebounds, and six assists for the Tigers will lead that charge.

Kenyon has four starters who average in double figures. Bryan Yelvington will lead the way Wednesday for the Lords. He is averaging 13 points and seven rebounds a game.

For the season, Kenyon is scoring 66 points per game on poor shooting, 43 percent, and they are allowing 66.4 points per game.

DePauw will travel to face the Kenyon Lords tomorrow at 2 p.m. and will be broadcast live on 91.5 WGRE.
