DPU women's team gets 10th straight win

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

The DePauw University Tigers womens' basketball team hosted Colorado College in a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference game at Neal Fieldhouse Sunday afternoon.

DePauw felt the game would be a tough battle as Colorado College's SCAC season record was similar to the Tigers'.

However, DePauw played a solid game, from beginning to end, earning their 10th straight win, 78-52.

The Tigers used a balanced offense, and a stingy defense to take a 41-19 lead into the locker room at half time.

DePauw continued to improve its lead over Colorado in the second half, with the largest lead in the game, 34 points, with the score at 73-39 with 6:07 left in the game, then DePauw head coach Kris Huffman substituted freely during the remainder of the game.

DePauw led Colorado in every statistical category of the game, 45 percent versus 34 percent shooting from the floor, 55 percent versus 24 percent three-point shooting, assists, 19 versus 7, and rebounding, 42 versus 32.

"I thought we played pretty well in the first half," commented Huffman after the game.

"They missed some shots where they had some good looks, but they didn't fall. That allowed us to get going and widen the margin.

"In the second half, we had a spell where we didn't make the greatest decisions on offense, and that impacted our defense, but then we straightened that out again.

"Overall, it was a good weekend for us," added Huffman.

DePauw was led in scoring by Cassie Pruzin with 17 points.

Lauren Goff followed with 14, Andrea Travelstead, Brooke Osborne, and Katie Aldrich added eight points each, Emily Marshall and Danielle Boraz each had six, Katie Mathews scored four, Kathryn Denbow added three, and Brianna Frigerio and Kaci Kust closed out the DePauw scoring with two points each.

Marshall led the Tigers in rebounds with a game-high and career-high 12 boards, Pruzin passed for a game-high seven assists, and Mathews had a game-high two steals.

The Tigers (13-3, 5-1 SCAC) travel to Jackson, Mississippi Friday night to play Millsaps in a SCAC game. The game begins at 8 p.m.
