DePauw at Rose-Hulman: Late 3-pointer, defensive stop give Tigers win over Engineers

TERRE HAUTE — DePauw’s point guard Mike Moore, the littlest player on the court at 5-foot-8, made the biggest play of the game with his high-arching, tie-breaking 3-pointer with just 1:07 left on the scoreboard clock.

Moore’s trey, followed up by a key defensive stop by his teammates at the other end of the floor, enabled DePauw to gain just enough separation and fend off Rose-Hulman 54-53 in a nonconference men’s college basketball game at Hulbert Arena on Monday.

Moore supplied the offensive heroics for the visiting Tigers, but it seemed every other word uttered by the two opposing coaches in postgame comments afterwards was the word, or a form of, “defense”.

“We defended them pretty well,” stated Rose-Hulman coach Jim Shaw. “Made it tough on the shot inside and made it tough on [Moore] on the perimeter and guarded their shooters in between.

“So I can’t complain about [the defense]. We’ve just got to take advantage of opportunities at our offensive end. It’s such a shame to waste such a good defensive effort, because it’s really, really difficult to get that good a defensive effort against a team like DePauw.”

“It’s always very physical when you play [Rose-Hulman],” commented DePauw coach — and former Rose coach — Bill Fenlon. “Those guys really get after you defensively. They keep you off the boards, ride you on the drives. This is a really hard place to play and a harder place to win.”

Fenlon added a bit of levity afterwards, saying, “Everybody is eating free pizza and hates DePauw … but it’s a fun atmosphere because of that. We’re really happy to escape with a win. We’re happy we can beat these guys because I think they’re as good a defensive team as you’re going to see at our level.”
