DPU women move to 18-0 by rolling past Wittenberg

Thursday, January 24, 2013

By halftime against Wittenberg, the only thing in question for the DePauw women's basketball team was whether or not it would double-up the score of its opponent. The host Tigers did exactly that, winning 74-37.

"We never go into a game (preparing) like we're better than an opponent. Coach (Huffman) always prepares us the same -- same scouting report, same amount of film, same prep during practice," DPU junior Alex Gasaway said. "But our goal is always to bury them."

Gasaway had a season-high 27 points against Wittenberg despite playing only 18 minutes.

"She had a nice game," Tigers coach Kris Huffman said. "She's coming off having the flu, so it was a good performance. And she wanted the ball, which was nice to see."

DePauw started the game slow, at least by its standards, leading by only two (16-14) with 10:44 left in the first half.

They rolled from there, finishing the half on a 20-4 run to take a 36-18 lead into the break.

Gasaway scored 11 in the first half, then continued where she left off in the second, attacking the basket and getting to the line. She mad 12-of-13 free throws in the game.

"I expect contact when I go in for layups or shots down low, but I don't typically expect for them to call it," Gasaway said. "Sometimes they call it, sometimes they don't. But I expect contact."

The win was DePauw's 43rd straight regular season victory, adding one more to the school-record to start a season. The Tigers are now 18-0.

They'll return to action Saturday when they host Ohio Wesleyan at 1 p.m.

Sorry my wife and I missed last night's game. One of very few. As longtime DPU women's basketball fans, we enjoy watching each player's progress thru their four year journey at DePauw.
