JumpsArt promotes the arts, involvement By ALEX PAUL email@example.com
An eight hour loop of relaxing jungle sounds plays on laptop speakers as students create their own cave paintings. Crumpled brown paper hangs on the wall simulating a cave. Eight elementary students cover the paper with mostly right handprints, a finger painted ring of fire, chalk drawn horses, and one Pokemon, a Pikachu. Chelsea Naylor ’12, a Bonner Scholar, came up with the idea for JumpsArt in the summer of 2012 after she attended a leadership conference. She brought the idea back that fall laying down the grunt work to get the program off the ground.

Casey returns with news of big gifts By DANA FERGUSON firstname.lastname@example.org
President Brian Casey returned from the annual DePauw University Board of Trustees meeting over the weekend with four significant announcements and a big smile. With over $31 million in donations from Board members and other donors, Casey said he felt “ahead” on the university’s seven-year plan. While gifts to improve properties on Anderson Street, East College Lawn and Athletic Facilities rolled in, Casey said contributions to the university’s endowment and Center for Student Engagement marked a positive turn in the capital campaign. Casey said initial gifts in university capital campaigns tend to go toward buildings, and more visible monuments. “Now you can start seeing the shifts to endowment scholarships and programs,” Casey said. A $20 million gift to the university’s endowment to be used for needbased financial aid marks the greatest of the gifts. Some for financial aid
Timothy H. and Sharon W. Ubben (both ’58) gave a $20 million gift to the university’s endowment to dole out financial aid to students. The gift to the endowment is one in a long line of generous donations first established by the Rector endowment and Rector Scholars program in 1919. “This university has been a part of our lives for many years, and it is a privilege to be a part of its future,” Ubben said in a press release. “Sharon and I have always believed that the opportunity to see the impact of your gift is one of the most rewarding experiences, which is why this gift means so much to the both of us.” Career preparation in Center for Student Engagement Casey announced that Kenneth W. and Carrie Melind Coquillette (both ’82) gave $2 million to fund new programming in the Center for Student Engagement that will focus on career preparation. The Coquillette gift will create an endowment and a discretionary fund that will allow for more programming and staffing enhancements. Specifically the gift will provide for the creation of the “Sophomore Year Experience,” during which students will be able to receive guidance on

“I modeled it after Sports Night [another Bonner Scholar event],” Naylor said. “I wanted to have that, but focus on an area of academics that doesn’t get a lot of focus, like art.” Naylor leads discussions and ultimately decides the focus of each lesson. JumpsArt begins with a power point presentation of a specific type of art, this month was Cave Paintings. Naylor, along with other Bonner scholars and volunteers, guide the students through the history of the type of art. “It was important to have female and male volunteers to show that boys can do art too,” Naylor said. After the students have learned enough about the art they move to a studio and re-create their interpretation of it. Students alternated from using chalk to finger paint to cover the crumpled brown paper. “They do just enough [history] that the kids don’t get bored with it,” Christi York said. Her son Duncan’s left hand prints the brown paper with orange.

Blue Door owner Dennis Furr has announced that the café will re-open its doors for business in “early February.” The decision to reopen was made after many customers answered a call for feedback posted on the café’s front door and website. “We had enough responses that we decided to go ahead and do it—give it a shot,” said Furr. With the re-opening, there will be some changes. From now on the Blue Door will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.. The revised hours will eliminate a lull during the afternoon and evening hours. “It was the biggest part of our business hit after Starbucks opened,” Furr said. Additionally, there will be changes to the menu. “It’s going to be a little less made to order, not as

much made from scratch,” said Furr. “We had thought people knew that making things from scratch took longer but a lot of the feedback was that we needed to speed up service.” Also helping to quicken service will be changes to hourly menu options. Previously, the Blue Door served breakfast all day but now on weekdays breakfast will only be served until 10:30 a.m., when the menu will switch over to lunch. “[Before] we’d be making a sandwich and then have to switch over to an omelet,” said Furr. “Making both was slowing us down.” On weekends breakfast will continue to be served all day and the lunch options will be eliminated. The popular drink menu will not experience any cuts. “I’m not sure how much of this is already being done, but when spring rolls out we’ll be doing Italian sodas in addition to everything else,” said Furr.

Senior Elizabeth Guerrero said she was happy to hear about the Blue Door re-opening. “It’s one of the best affordable places to meet up with friends for brunch around here,” said Guerrero. “I’d hate to see it gone for good.” David Gordon, president of the DePauw ultimate frisbee team, said that he was also excited to see the team’s sponsor re-open for business. Earlier this year, Gordon and the team created a partnership with Dennis’ mother, co-owner Sue Furr. The Ultimate Frisbee team put the Blue Door logo on their jerseys and the café helped donate funds to the team. “At meetings [Sue Furr] told me the business was doing poorly,” Gordon said. “While Starbucks was making $14,000 a week, she was making almost nothing. Starbucks has good coffee and good pastries and a good atmosphere but they’re everywhere. There’s nothing really special about them.”

Brooke said the program is so vital to the community because of the difficulty parents face transporting their children to Indianapolis.

Recreation Facilities Master Plan, which projects a more than $25 million facility renovation to the Lilly Center, including a 36,000 squre-foot expansion. The construction of the M. Scott and Kimberlee A. Welch Fitness Center, a 16,000 square-foot facility that will serve varsity sports as well as provide the primary recreational fitness facility for students, faculty and staff, will begin as early as April. Construction of a multi-sport stadium, made possible by a donation from Marshall W. (’84) and Amy Reavis, will begin this spring. Along with the installation of synthetic field turf at Blackstock Stadium, which was made possible by an anonymous donor. “Our goals are two-fold,” Stevie Baker-Watson, director of Athletics and Recreational Sports said in a press release. “We want to provide championship quality venues for our student-athletes and fans, and we want to ensure that our campus community has access to exceptional fitness and training facilities. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the leadership of our Board, we will make both of these goals a reality.” Enhancements to the new field at Blackstock Stadium are projected to be complete prior to the 2013 season. The multi-sport stadium is set to be complete in Spring 2014 and the renovation of the Lilly Center is scheduled to be complete in August 2014.

Smith (’85) and his wife Ann Smith committed $1 million to restore the grounds surrounding East College. Casey said the gift will be the equivalent of the Anderson Street renovation project of the East College lawn, introducing new trees, irrigation, lighting and brick pedestrian pathways. “I simply can’t imagine DePauw without thinking of East College and the grounds that surround it,” Smith said in a press release. “The beauty of the DePauw campus is striking, but it must be nurtured and restored. Ann and I want to make sure that these grounds, in the academic core of our campus, match the extraordinary contributions made by the faculty and students who walk them.” The restoration process will begin over the summer and will be completed before classes begin in the fall.

Ginji’s World in Japanese Woodblock Prints By NICOLE DECRISCIO and LEEANN SAUSSER email@example.com
A new exhibit displaying Ginji’s World through the use of Japanese Woodblock Prints opened in Peeler on Thursday. The exhibit, which is open through April 21, features a series of paintings based upon The Tale of Genji, which was written by Ryute Tarehike. These paintings are part of the personal collection of Paulette and Jack Lantz, which makes this a unique opportunity for the community. “We’re one of a few venues who get the exhibit,” Craig Hadley, Curator of Exhibitions and University Collections, said. “It’s great to see a comprehensive collection in one place.” The exhibit itself contains a story of the various adventures of a prince and unrequited love. According to Hadley, the exhibit is based on “the first novel written about a prince who could
not become king. Half of the story is about his exploits with women. He tries to get a lower class woman who will not have him.” It has been a long process to get the exhibit to DePauw. “About 90 percent of the time spent on an exhibit is planning,” Hadley said. Freshman Leigh Plummer, who helped set up the exhibit during Winter Term, testified to the tediousness of the process. “It’s actually a lot of work to put those exhibits together,” she said, “There’s a lot of work that goes into it.” Yet, DePauw’s version of the exhibit is not the typical display of the pieces. Hadley pointed to the fact that this version of the exhibit takes something that is older and makes it more relevant. “The labels have been modified so that they’re not as lengthly,” Hadley said.
In addition, the order of the prints are set up in a unique manner that is different from when they were created. “The first part introduced you to the printed story and Genji in general so you can think about the original story,” Hadley said. “Then it moves to the rustic Genji in popular settings, such as with actors.” Throughout the exhibit, visitors learn about Japanese history and their military, as this tale has been told repeatedly through their art and culture. According to Hadley, the exhibit contains approximately 90 percent of all pieces that display Genji. Freshman Caitlin Qua, who also helped set up the exhibit as part of her Winter Term class urges students to visit the exhibit. “DePauw has an amazing Asian art collection that not many people know about,” she said.

THE DEPAUW | Editorial Board
In just the past week, DePauw has gained $31 million in donations from members of the board of trustees and alums for the programming that was promised after the campus improvements. We couldn’t be more excited. The recent donations seem to have taken students’ voices and wants into consideration. We asked for a new Lilly Center and construction crews will be breaking ground this February. We asked for an improved career center and more intensive career preparation and now we’re getting that along with a new financial fellowship. This is in addition to renovations to our athletic fields and stadiums that will come into fruition by the end of the year and donated funds that will be put towards financial aid. This says a lot about DePauw as an institution: it’s not just current students who care, it’s also students and family members from years past. When a student leaves DePauw, DePauw does not leave the student. Thanks to this consistent alumni dedication, the university will not only continue to exist, it will grow and progress. Change is good. We can’t wait to come back for alumni weekend and be equally astonished and proud of the development of our university. From gifts to improved properties, revamped athletic facilities, improved career preparation services, to financial aid money, these projects won’t just be surface enhancements or added comforts. These changes will enhance the DePauw experience — not only aesthetically, but also scholastically and athletically. While previous projects may have contributed to beautifying campus (it is no doubt a more pleasant walk from Bloomington Street Hall to East College now than it was last year), we are now happy to hear that the changes will impact what we’re really here for — our education. The university‘s future depends on the students. While faculty, staff and alumni contributions are undoubtedly important, we students should remain in the equation. We appreciate knowing that our voices are heard. To the staff, faculty, alumni, trustees and President Casey, thank you for all of your hard work.
tifreeze and water circulates through a system of tubes underground. This solution warms to the ground temperature and transfers this heat into a home or building through a heat exchanger. The solution warms the air in a heat pump, which runs through the ductwork in walls to heat a room. A geothermal heating system raises the air temperature within a building to 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and from that point, a boiler system heats the house to the desired temperature. In the summer, this system works in reverse to achieve the same effects as an air conditioner. The system absorbs the heat within a building and transfers it underground through the piping, where the it cools to the constant 55 F temperature. In May 2009, Ball State University broke ground on a $50 million campus retrofit to a geothermal heat system covering 45 buildings. The New York Times has described this project as “pioneering,” and their transition to geothermal has returned huge dividends. Annually, the university reports a savings of $2 million in operating costs from the old, coal-fired boiler system. Additionally, Ball State has also cut their carbon footprint in half, making it a more environmentally friendly campus. These savings are in line with other national statistics on geothermal heat loops. The Indiana Geological Survey at Indiana University reports that this system is 25-50 percent-

DAVE JORGENSON / THE DEPAUW
Mass transit in Indy would be a win for DePauw EMILY BRELAGE I was born and raised in Indianapolis. Reggie Miller and Peyton Manning are my childhood sports heroes. I love all things college basketball (go Hoosiers) and Kurt Vonnegut is one of my favorite authors. But as much love as I have for the ‘Nap, there’s room for improvement in my hometown, namely in its public transportation — or lack thereof. Last Wednesday, the Indiana State House of Representatives Roads and Transportation Committee approved House Bill 1011, which calls for a total revamp of bus routes and the implementation of a light rail system between the city and its northern suburbs. A tax hike of about 0.3% on Marion and Hamilton counties is proposed to cover these much-needed infrastructure modifications. If Indiana Representatives in the House Ways and Means committee continue to move the bill forward, the issue will be left up to voters in a 2014 referendum. As an Indiana resident, I hope the bill passes. And as a DePauw student, I really hope it passes. Mass transit in Indy would mean big things for the University, even if the proposed system doesn’t stretch all the way to Greencastle. Despite being the 12th largest city in the U.S., urban sprawl in Indianapolis leads it to feel smaller and more disjointed than other large cities. Public transportation would help to concentrate the metropolis and unify its bedroom communities. This concentration would bring
Indianapolis up to par with other major metropolitan areas and continue to propel its rapid growth. And if last year’s surge-free hosting of Super Bowl XLVI was any indication, Indy undoubtedly has the capacity to become a world-class economic and cultural hub. With DePauw just an hour west, the University can only benefit from association. However quaint, Greencastle either charms or repels prospective students, faculty candidates or visiting speakers. Indianapolis’ close proximity, especially in light of the new public transportation system, could become an even more convincing, more attractive draw to DePauw. Many DePauw graduates seek employment in Indianapolis, and its development will only bring more jobs and opportunities to the city. Keeping our alumni close can only prove positive for current students looking to make professional connections. Not to mention, Indy-based DePauw alumni would be better able to visit their alma mater and take part in campus life events like Monon Bell or Old Gold weekends. The more frequently they visit, the more they’re reminded of what makes our institution so great — and the more likely they are to give to our endowment, set up scholarships or fund projects like the Hoover Dining Hall. Mass transit in Indianapolis might not be the ultimate solution for building a better Indianapolis, but it’s a start. And though geographically we might feel isolated from the Hoosier State’s capital city, the effects of legislation like House Bill 1011 can still trickle down to DePauw. — Brelage is senior from Indianapolis, Ind. majoring in English writing. email@example.com
A chance for a sustainable legacy with Hoover Dining Hall

To the Board of Trustees, thank you
the depauw | opinion
The construction of the new Hoover Dining Hall offers DePauw a rare opportunity to lead liberal arts colleges in the field of sustainability. As plans for this new building come together, the University should strongly consider installing a geothermal heating system, which is the most efficient and environmentally friendly of all heating and cooling systems. Doing so would help us to honor the President’s Climate Commitment, which President Casey signed as one of his first actions at DePauw. This pledge requires all new construction to be Silver LEED certified. Installing geothermal systems will pave the way for future climate initiatives, making us an innovator amongst other small schools. Unlike traditional heating and cooling mechanisms, geothermal systems transfer already-existing heat from beneath the ground’s surface into a building. In Indiana, five feet below the ground, the Earth remains a constant 55 degrees year round. In a geothermal heating system, a solution of an-
more energy efficient than a traditional heating and cooling system, and the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that a full return on the initial investment of a geothermal system will be experienced within five to ten years. Given these success stories, it seems fitting that DePauw should follow suit. With the 2020 plan underway, now is the ideal time to discuss the switch to geothermal, aiding the university’s compliance with LEED standards offered by the U.S. Green Building Council. It may have steep initial costs, but in the long run DePauw will experience large net savings on the investment as a result of lowered utility and operation costs and a significantly reduced carbon footprint. The first place to install this system is obvious: the Hoover Dining Hall. My fellow members of the DePauw Environmental Policy Project and I challenge the university to further improve its sustainability program and honor the commitment it has already made by beginning the switch to geothermal heating and cooling, improving our economic stability and making us an environmentally-progressive university that other schools would strive to imitate.
icture a typical Saturday night on campus. You finish up your studies at the library and head over to the Hub for a bite to eat. After taking a quick shower, you get ready in your room right before you head over to the frats with your friends. It’s freezing outside, so you call Safe Ride on your walk back to your house to avoid any further hassle. Last, but not least, you finish off the night off with a classic Marvin’s GCB, which you decide to have delivered. Overall, it is a successful night, but certainly nothing special or out of the ordinary. By sophomore year, you might start to consider such a night to be routine. Routine for a DePauw student, that is. This series of events is rare for a large sector of college students both in the United States and abroad. It may seem an obvious truth, but many college campuses are located in cities much larger than Greencastle. A “safe ride” for most students who attend these schools consists of a costly cab, unless the student is willing to brave potential

DePauw students: coddled or cultivated? pickpockets and trudge home on foot. Fast food exists as a more viable choice than any healthful dining hall meal. In some situations, the only option for going out are local clubs and bars—clubs and bars that “card” every student, charge fees and can easily turn you away. It might take 30 minutes to walk to a library, and there are no grassy areas to toss a Frisbee around along the way. In large cities, college students have to not only focus on their studies, they have to navigate an entirely consuming network. In many ways, these larger environments are beneficial to student growth. Spending a week in London and a week in Paris over this past Winter Term, I gained an appreciation for the life of college students in larger cities. I quickly became accustomed to the buzz and of each distinct place, learned how to navigate currency as opposed to a Tiger Card and became used to the feeling of not distinguishing a student from a businessperson on each campus we visited. Each campus in these larger cities was networked with other campuses as well as surrounding corporate buildings. Commercial food, brand-name stores and people of all sorts coalesced to create a truly unique vibe that was conducive to student study and inspiration. With such understanding under our belts, it
“Financial aid would be the area that most directly affects me, as well as the rest of campus.”
seems easy and almost merited to fault DePauw for coddling its students. Why do we choose to live in Greencastle, a small Midwestern American town, to study? Why not live in a big city and delve into the energy of a million-plus people whose hearts seem electrified by the very beat of city life? The answer, I think, is that we choose to invest our energy in the most important aspect of all: our intellect. I don’t mean intellect as a closed definitional term — rather I mean intellect in a broader sense. DePauw cultivates our intellect through both our personal interactions and our commitment to education. At DePauw, we are able and encouraged to understand the value of sitting down with students and professors in the Hub to chat instead of running to catch a cab. We learn to appreciate time and are given the precious opportunity to grow as individuals and make lifelong personal connections that mean so very much. In a way, DePauw does spoil us, but we should always take time to appreciate the unique whole of our experience on campus. — Grauer is a sophomore from Rocky River, Ohio majoring in art history. email@example.com

Men’s swimming remains undefeated, 8-0

The men’s swim team had a close call but came out undefeated this weekend. The team managed to take home the victory against Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology with a final score of 138-130. Despite the close score, the Tigers completed the dual meet portion of the season with an 8-0 record and clenched their twenty-forth straight dual meet victory. There were multiple standout performances by the men of the team including two relay wins and multiple individual
victories. Pacing the team was sophomore Casey Hooker, with a double victory in the 200-yard freestyle and the 500-yard freestyle. There were four other individual victories from freshman Blake Lehmann in the 100 backstroke, junior Matt Gleason in the 200 butterfly, junior Jack Burgeson in the 100 free, and sophomore Alex Alfonso in the 200 medley. “Alex Alfonso’s win in the 200 individual medley was huge,” head coach Adam Cohen said of Saturday’s meet. The men have set themselves on the path to conference with the momentum of an undefeated season behind them. “From here we go into conference,” Cohen said. “It is what we have pointed to all season. We begin to rest and get ready.”
Women’s swim team gains momentum By CAITLYN HAMMACK firstname.lastname@example.org
This weekend the women’s swimming and diving team ended the dual meet portion of the season with a 5-2 record. The ladies bested Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology’s team, winning with an impressive 56-point lead. Stand out performances included sophomore Emily Weber’s two individual wins in the 200-yard freestyle and the 500-yard freestyle. The 200 freestyle relay team of freshman Caroline Bridges, senior Courtney Lehmann, senior Nicole Rossillo and freshman Erin Horne achieved the national “B” cut time, stopping the clock at 1:36.45. This means the ladies may have the opportunity to compete at the national level in Texas.
This win over Rose-Hulman came at a pivotal time for the team as they are going into the NCAC conference championships next week. The team came off their loss against the University of Chicago to win this weekend and establish some momentum. “I think seeing the four ladies, Lehmann, Horne, Rossillo and Bridges [win the relay] gave the team a lot of confidence going into the championship meet because it shows the team how fast we can be at conference,” junior Allison Kirby said of the team’s momentum coming out of the dual meet portion. Kirby picked up an individual win of her own in the 200-yard breaststroke on Saturday. She also commented on the overall impressive performance of the women’s team against Rose-Hulman. With the team’s eight individual wins and two relay wins, it seems like she is right.
The Tigers dropped their second straight conference game Saturday as they lost to the Kenyon Lords 66-65. DePauw falls to 13-8 overall with a 6-6 North Coast Athletic Coast Conference record. The team rallied from an 11-point deficit as they trailed 56-45 with five minutes, 21 seconds left to go in the game. Senior Barry Flynn brought DePauw within one point after a layup with 41 seconds remaining. However, Kenyon standout Ikenna Nwadibia had the game-winning layup with less than 4 seconds left on the clock, securing the victory for the Lords. “We had some chances to maybe be in control of the outcome of the game but our defensive lapses didn’t allow us to be in control of the game,” DePauw head coach Bill Fenlon said. “That’s what puts you in a tight spot in the end.” The Tigers were led by Flynn who scored 14 points along with four rebounds and three assists. The Lords benefitted from Nwadibia’s game high 22 points and 11 rebounds. “We just had some concentration issues defensively that got us into a little bit of trouble,” Fenlon said. “We dug ourselves out of trouble and then it’s anybody game at the end.” A bright spot for the team in these past two losses has been junior Pat Haggin. The forward has had back-to-back career high games for the Tigers. In Saturday’s loss, he recorded 14 points while going 3-3 from the three-point line. “The big thing for Pat is that he has a lot more confidence than he had six weeks ago,” Fenlon said. “That’s showing in his play, he’s a little more aggressive in shooting the ball and we have to try find a way to find him some more shots.” The team’s 6-6 conference record currently places them in a three-way tie for fourth place with Kenyon and Denison. DePauw will travel to Denison this Wednesday for a conference matchup. “I like our group. We’re not in an ideal situation but we could be in a lot worse position,” Fenlon said. “We just have to figure things out just a little better for these last couple weeks.”

O’Brien makes seamless transition to indoor track Freshman cross country standout finished second in 3,000 meter event at weekend meet By MICHAEL APPELGATE email@example.com
She was one of the only distance competitors still running around the outside of the track. Heather O’Brien’s event, the daunting, 15-lap 3,000 meter run was long over, and relay teams were sprinting on the carpet of the Indoor Track and Tennis Center. O’Brien was easy to spot: carefully staying on the outside of the tape, and ducking beneath it to complete countless semi-circle laps after finishing second in her first ever collegiate indoor track event. That work ethic is becoming commonplace for the DePauw women’s track team’s newest phenomenon. O’Brien, after placing 16th in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III cross country regional in November, began her indoor track career in a flurry Friday evening during the Tiger Small College Indoor Invitational. She rushed to the lead in the opening laps, but was overtaken by Hillary Cain, a sophomore from Franklin College, who passed her on the fifth lap, and held the lead for good. “I could hear (Cain) right on my heels,
then she got in front of me for a few laps, and that made me feel better knowing where she was,” O’Brien said. “Then she started getting further and further away, and the last few laps she really started to kick it in and she got me by three seconds.” The freshman from Indianapolis, Ind., finished second in 10 minutes, 31.40 seconds, and was proud of her first effort on the collegiate track scene. “It was close the whole way, and it just gives me a good competition for the future,” she said. O’Brien is coming off her first ever cross country season, where her success surprised not only the conference, but herself. Originally recruited to DePauw to play tennis, O’Brien missed qualifying for the NCAA championships by just one place, but in the process, impressed head coach Kori Stoffregen with an apparent passion for the sport, which she only competed in her senior year at Bishop Chatard High School. “She just trains really hard,” Stoffregen said. “What happens outside of races is what makes her special. I think ultimately she’s just so mentally tough and competitive, and we just need to tweak all the other things.” She’s taking her same focus and drive she

became known for on grass, to the track. “They’re both extremely mentally tough,” O’Brien said about cross country and indoor track. “But what’s important is just locking in. You have to forget about the number of laps… It’s more mentally challenge just staying in it for the whole time.” What she likes about the track is there are no hills, but the small, oval track is more technical than first glance. “It’s harder to gain on somebody because there are so many straightaways,” she said. “Once (Cain) got ahead of me a little bit, I just thought I would keep my pace and for the past few laps maybe I could gain on her a little bit. I let her slip away a little too much.” Stoffregen wasn’t too concerned with O’Brien’s finish. In fact, it’s right where he expected her. “Sometimes getting beat early isn’t a bad thing,” Stoffregen said. “Sometimes it sparks a little bit more fire. She’s right on course for what we have planned for her. “We still view Heather as a long-term project. We’ll see the best from her later rather than earlier because she’s so new to the start.” The DePauw track teams host the DePauw Invitational on Saturday.

Road warriors clinch NCAC season title, seniors get 100th win By MICHAEL APPELGATE
NEXT UP FOR THE TIGERS
Head coach Kris Huffman called it “Toughness tour 2013.” A slew of road games logged more bus miles than points during a three-game road stretch. But while the path was long, it came with an expected reward at the end. The DePauw women’s basketball team is the outright winner of the NCAC regular season title, and in doing so, clinches home-court advantage in the NCAC tournament. The Tigers claimed their fourth straight conference title by downing Allegheny College, 67-36, and Hiram College, 91-44. In both games, the No. 1 ranked team in the country led by 19 points at halftime, and out-rebounded both opponents by a combined 33 boards. “We had a great week,” Huffman said. “You can’t miss a beat when you’re leading the conference, and everyone wants to take a shot at you. I do like how we’ve prepared, and how they’re ready to play each day.” Friday’s game against Allegheny (11-10, 6-6 NCAC) featured the Tigers snatching the lead early on, and scoring 12 unanswered points for a 16-2 lead after just four minutes.
“They have a very guard-heavy team, and their strength is that they can beat you off the dribble,” Huffman said. “Allegheny was ready to play us. They were extremely physical in that game. I thought we played a good first half, and an even better second half.” Junior forward Alex Gasaway and sophomore guard Savannah Trees paced DePauw’s offense with 14 points apiece. The defense also shined bright, holding the Gators’ field goal percentage at 28.4 percent on 18-36 shooting. On Saturday, the game was notably closer early on, as Hiram (8-14, 3-10 NCAC) responded to DePauw’s opening 10 straight points with an 8-2 run of its own. After nine minutes, the Tigers led by three. “They were going more of an up-tempo game and more guardoriented than they’ve been before,” Huffman said. “They were ready to play us, and there was some excitement there before the game in shooting the ball. It was a challenge for us initially.” That was as close as the Terriers would come, however, as the Tigers scored 14 straight points, and led by as much as 47 with just one minute left to play in the game to seal home-court advantage in the NCAC tournament — and the senior class’ 100th win. Leading the way on offense again was Gasaway who piled on 17 points with seven steals and four rebounds. “Alex is a special player who is a little bit undersized in the post, but plays a little bit bigger than who she is,” Huffman said. “She’s playing
as well as she’s ever played. She wants the ball for us, which is key.” Ali Ross also stood out on offense against Hiram, and completed a week where the junior guard scored 40 points and nailed six threepoint shots. “What Ali doesn’t get credit for is we put her on one of the best guards, a lot of times the point guard to see if she could go and disrupt the offense,” Huffman said. “She is so valuable defensively for us.” Both wins improve DePauw to a perfect 22-0 overall, and 13-0 in NCAC play. The Tigers now have won 22 or more games in 12 straight seasons — the first Division III women’s basketball team to accomplish the feat. “We didn’t go into the season saying, ‘OK, we want to be undefeated,’ but we wanted to try and get better every day, and see how good we could become.” Huffman said. “This team, if I can label them, would be one of the most consistent teams we’ve had, and one of the hardest working we’ve had, maybe the hardest working team. “They seem to have a great focus about them. They have a lot of fight in them. They push each other in practice, they encourage each other and it’s really just been a lot of fun to coach this team.” DePauw next hosts Oberlin College (8-14, 3-10 NCAC) on Saturday at the Neal Fieldhouse.
