GREENCASTLE -- Behind a 15-point performance from guard Lauren Goff, the DePauw Tigers coasted to a 60-33 win over Rose-Hulman in the second game of the Amy Hasbrook Memorial Tournament Tuesday.

Goff was one of three Tigers in double figures. Katie Mathews added 12 points and Katie Alrich chipped in 10 points in the win. Freshman Alex Gasaway led the team with 10 rebounds.

Goff was deadly from behind the arc Tuesday, connecting on five three-pointers, including three in the first half. Goff's early three gave DePauw a 5-2 lead at 17:49 and got the Tigers off to a hot start in the contest.

Following two more Goff three-pointers and buckets Kate Walker, Katei Aldrich and Katie Mathews, the Tigers built a 15-point lead at 21-6 and went on to take the halftime lead of 32-12.

DePauw scored 13 points off turnovers and 14 second chance points in the first half. The Engineers on the other hand scored no second chance points and only six points off turnovers.

The Tigers owned the offensive rebounds on the night, collecting 22, while Rose-Hulman only managed one. It was DePauw's quickness and its awareness of where teammates were that allowed them to battle for rebounds and get them to open players for shots or to reset the offense.

In the second half, DePauw started cold, but soon found the touch and continued its march to victory.

After missing their first four shots, Ellie Pearson's lay-up got things moving in the right direction and it was Goff yet again knocking down two three-pointers in quick fashion to give DePauw a 45-16 advantage with 13:57 remaining.

The Tigers built their biggest lead with 8:39 remaining after Pearson hit a free throw to give DePauw a 35-point lead at 54-19.

On the night, DePauw shot just 34 percent from the field, but its dominance inside allowed them to walk away with an easy win.

The Tigers outrebounded Rose-Hulman 42-23. DePauw's bench chipped in 13 points on the night.

DePauw went on to win the game 60-33 and will face John Carroll at 5 p.m in the championship game today. Rose-Hulman will face Ripon at 3 p.m. in the consolation contest.
