Trinity Women's Basketball @ DePauw

 

Trinity’s women’s basketball team highlighted a weekend sweep in SCAC play with a win over fifth-ranked Oglethorpe University on Sunday afternoon. 

The Tigers opened the weekend with a lopsided 76-46 win over Sewanee, led by Ali Marzella’s 19 points and five assists.  Abby Dietert chipped in with 15 points and five boards, and Krista Prato Matthews earned her 15th double-double in 16 games this season.  Prato Matthews had 10 points and 15 boards to go with four assists.

On Sunday, Trinity opened the game against nationally-ranked Oglethorpe with eight straight points and ended up leading the entire game.  Marzella, a first-year player, tied her season-high with 23 points on 7-11 shooting.  Prato Matthews came on strong in the second half to finish with 17 points and 13 boards and another double-double.  All five Trinity starters scored in double figures, including 15 points from Dietert – who set a new season-high with 12 rebounds and collected her first career double-double.

Prato Matthews is now just one point away from 1,300 in her career and could move up as high as third on Trinity’s all-time scoring list.  She is already fewer than 40 rebounds from breaking Trinity’s career record, which was set by Trinity Hall of Famer Terri Hailey from 1977-81.  Additionally, Prato Matthews became the second player in SCAC history to record 200 or more blocks, collecting six on Sunday to push her past the milestone.

Trinity travels to DePauw and Centre this weekend to continue its schedule against teams in the SCAC East Division.  The Tigers lead the West Division with a 7-1 record.

Trinity led DePauw at halftime of last year’s meeting, but couldn’t hang on as DePauw earned a 68-51 victory.  Trinity has lost its last three regular season meetings against DePauw and has also not won on the road against DePauw since the 2002-03 season.  In fact, that win was Trinity’s only SCAC win at DePauw.
