DePauw roundup: Women have streak snapped, men victorious
GAMBIER, Ohio — For the first time since late November, DePauw University’s No. 10-ranked women’s suffered defeat as host Kenyon handed the Tigers a 70-64 North Coast Athletic Conference loss.
DePauw dropped to 22-2 overall and 14-1 in the NCAC following a game that included 12 ties and 15 lead changes, while the Ladies improved to 17-6 overall and 11-3 in conference play.
DePauw had already locked up the top seed for the NCAC Tournament on Wednesday, while Kenyon solidified the second seed with the win.
The Tigers scored the game’s first five points, but Kenyon closed the gap and took a 13-12 lead after the first quarter.
DePauw again gained a five-point advantage after Claire Ryan’s three-pointer and layup made it 24-19 with 1:55 remaining in the half.
The Tigers, however, scored the final four of the half to close DePauw’s lead to 24-23 at the break.
Sydney Kopp’s free throw and three-pointer early in the third pushed the lead back to five at 28-23, but Kenyon scored five straight to even the score at 28-28. Kenyon grabbed a four-point lead in the third, but DePauw countered with five straight to regain the lead.
The teams headed to the final quarter tied 46-46 after Ryan’s free throw with one second left.
DePauw missed its first five field goal tries of the fourth and added a turnover.
A Taylor Howard tip-in and Maya Howard jumper evened the count at 50-50. The Tigers stayed close, but trailed the rest of the way. After Maya Howard hit two free throws with 50 seconds left, Dominguez came right back with a three-pointer that pushed Kenyon’s lead to 66-62 with 29 seconds remaining.
The Tigers missed a couple of tries on their next possession before Melinda Franke grabbed a rebound and then hit two free throws with 12 seconds left to trim the lead back to two. Kenyon’s Lane Davis knocked in two free throws with eight seconds left before the Tigers missed a three-pointer and Kenyon’s Jessica Gerber ended the scoring with two more charity tosses.
Ryan paced DePauw with 15 points and seven rebounds, while Taylor Howard added 14 points and Maya Howard 13.
DePauw shot 34.0 percent from the field to Kenyon’s 46.2 percent and Kenyon nailed 15-of-17 free throws to DePauw’s 23-of-33.
The Tigers outrebouded Kenyon 36-26, but committed 16 turnovers to the Ladies’ 12.
The Tigers travel to Oberlin on Saturday in the final tuneup before the NCAC Tournament.
• DePauw 73, Kenyon 68 — Senior Luke Lattner scored all his 21 points in the second half and brought DePauw back from a 38-31 halftime deficit to defeat Kenyon on Saturday.
Lattner was a quiet 0-for-3 in the first half before turning it around with a 6-of-12 second half, which included a 6-for-8 mark from the charity stripe and a 3-for-4 display from 3-point range.
DePauw took control following one of Lattner’s 3-pointers at 12:12 to move ahead 50-48. Kenyon would later tie it at 68-68 with 46 seconds remaining, but DePauw would close the game going 5-of-6 from the foul line.
Lattner received plenty of help as three other Tigers also reached double figures. David Vogel scored 12 thanks to a 4-of-5 performance from 3-point range. Jack VandeMerkt scored 10 as did Andrew Kus.
Nate Jahn added five points, seven rebounds and five assists.
DePauw outscored Kenyon 32-22 in the paint, but Kenyon outscored the Tigers off the bench 27-15. DePauw also scored nine points off of Kenyon’s 10 turnovers.
The win pushes DePauw to 10-13 overall and 6-10 in the conference. The Tigers host Wabash on Wednesday.
