DePauw out rebounded Colorado College 45-28 including 17 offensive boards helping lead to a 67-42 victory Friday evening from the Hanger Dome on the campus of Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi.

Senior Katie Matthews of DePauw poured in 20 points to lead all scorers and junior Katie Aldrich chipped in with 17 points and 13 rebounds for the DU Tigers. DePauw closed out the last five minutes of the first half and continued the momentum second with a 20-5 run over Colorado College to open up the contest.

Colorado College held DePauw to just 1-for-12 from beyond the arc but it was the offensive rebounding that hurt the CC Tigers. Senior Alyssa Aldaz paced Colorado College with 10 points and three rebound in her final game for the CC Tigers. With the loss Colorado College closes out their season with a record of 11-15.

In their final year in the SCAC DePauw has now advanced to 10 straight tournament semi-final games. The win improves the DU Tigers record to 23-3 and will face off in the second women's semi-final game tomorrow against the winner of tonight's Rhodes Trinity match-up.
