GREENCASTLE, Ind. - The Centre College men scored their first win ever at DePauw on Friday night, holding the home team to 32.1 percent shooting from the field in a 63-47 win.
"It's a very good win for our program," Centre coach Greg Mason said. "DePauw's a good young team, but I think our experience really showed tonight."
Centre (11-3, 3-1 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) took a 10-point halftime lead, then held DePauw (9-6, 2-2) to 7-for-24 shooting in the second half. The Tigers were 3-for-16 from 3-point range.
"We played outstanding defense tonight," Mason said. "They did what they had to do to win."
On offense, Reggie Magnusson led the Colonels with 21 points on 9-for-14 shooting.
"Offensively, Reggie is somebody that other teams have to take into account," Mason said.
James Booker and Jason Atwell had 13 and 10 points, respectively, and Mason said their shooting and ball movement helped Centre get off to a good start.
