Southwestern Slides Past DePauw 69-62 to Advance to Semifinal Round

The West's No. 3 seeded Southwestern University Pirates jumped out to a 39-31 halftime lead en route to a 69-62 SCAC Tournament quarterfinal win over the East's second seeded DePauw University Tigers.

The Pirates built up a 14 point lead with 5:00 minutes left in the second half only to see DePauw senior guard Mike Moore and his Tigers rally to cut the deficit to 64-62 with just under a minute left. That's when Southwestern junior guard Zach Bergstrom made a three-pointer to increase the Pirates lead to five were they hung on for the win.

With the win Southwestern advances to the semifinal round tomorrow against Trinity at 5 pm in Grove Gymnasium.

After the game SCACs Jeff DeBaldo caught up with DePauw head coach Bill Fenlon, Southwestern junior Zach Bergstrom and Southwestern head coach Bill Raleigh.
