The DePauw Tigers kept their perfect record intact after knocking off Denison, 85-48, on Wednesday evening in Greencastle, Ind.

DePauw, the number one team in the nation, took an early 15-11 lead before a 6-0 spurt by DU shrunk the deficit to two with 11:25 left in the opening period.  Over the final 11+ minutes, the Tigers engineered a 26-8 run that gave the home team a 19-point lead at the break, their largest of the half.

The Tigers maintained a comfortable lead over the entire second period, leading by as many as 38 on two separate occasions.  DePauw scored 24 of its 44 second-half points down low and got 20 tallies from the bench.

On the night, DePauw scored 46 points in the paint and turned 23 Big Red turnovers into 35 points.  The Tigers also held a 34-23 advantage on the glass.

Denison shot 43 percent from the field and hit 9-of-11 free throw attempts.  Sophomore Mary Margaret Habel led the Big Red with 13 points and four rebounds, while senior Serafina Nuzzo chipped in 11 points, three boards, three assists and two blocks in 32 minutes.

Alex Gasaway scored a game-high 18 points, while Alison Stephens and Ellie Pearson added 11 and 10, respectively.  Pearson also grabbed eight rebounds and logged four steals, while Ali Ross dished out six assists.  As a team, DePauw shot 54 percent from the field and 50 percent (8-for-16) from behind the arc.

DU falls to 8-8 on the year and 3-4 in the North Coast Athletic Conference, while the Tigers improve to a 16-0 and 7-0 in league action.  The Big Red returns to the court on Saturday when they travel to Allegheny for a 1 p.m. tip-off.
