Second Straight; Centre knocks off DePauw 60-56 in SCAC Men's Title Game

The Centre College Colonels, the East's top seed, edged the second seeded DePauw University Tigers 60-56 to lay claim to the program's third Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference championship in the last four years.

The win earned Centre the SCAC's automatic bid into the NCAA Division III Tournament. Head coach Greg Mason and his Colonels earned the school's fourth consecutive NCAA bid and 13th overall. Centre improved to 18-8 whil DePauw dropped to 20-8 with the loss.

DePauw was not quite able to keep up the accurate shooting in the second half. The Tigers shot 26.7 percent (8-for-30) while Centre was able to shoot just over 46 percent to earn the win. The Colonels also used a strong performance from the post, as they held a 20-8 scoring advantage inside the paint. DePauw did hold a 13-0 margin in points off the bench.

All-Tournament team honros went to Centre's Mullaney (MVP), Noll, Alex Lloyd, DePauw's Willis and Trinity University's Luke Caldarera.

After the game SCAC Director of Communications caught up with both head coaches along with Centre teammates Jeff Mullaney, Alex Lloyd and Danny Noll.
