The women's basketball team lost to DePauw University on Pinholster Court on Saturday afternoon, 71-48. The Tigers, ranked No. 12 in the country, were simply too much for the Petrels to tame.
The Petrels hung around the Tigers in the early stages and only tailed by 4 points midway through the first half. The Tigers, however, closed the half on a big spurt to open up a 37-20 halftime lead from which they would not look back.
Kelley Reeves (11 points) and Katie Weeks (10 points) were the only Petrels who managed to notch double-figures against a Tiger squad that outrebounded Oglethorpe 47-35 on the afternoon. Sophomore Sarah Giles added 6 points, 7 rebounds and 5 blocks in the loss.
The Petrels are now 3-9 on the season and will face Centre College tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. in the Dorough Field House.
