DePaul women win Big East title

ROSEMONT, Ill. – DePaul’s senior trio of Jasmine Penny, Kelsey Reynolds and Kelsey Smith went out on a high note on Tuesday, cutting down the nets as Big East Champions and capping their regular season DePaul careers with a 91-74 win against visiting Georgetown at McGrath-Phillips Arena.

Penny had 17 points and helped No. 25 DePaul improve to 24-6 and 15-3 in Big East play. Georgetown fell to 10-20 overall and 4-14 in the conference with the loss.

DePaul clinched the Big East Conference regular season title after its win at St. John’s on Saturday. It was the fifth conference title in team history, but the first one in the Big East. The Blue Demons have now won 13 of their past 14 games.

The Blue Demons will face a yet to be determined opponent on Sunday in the quarterfinal round of the conference tournament.

Le Moyne marches into NE-10 semis

RINDGE, N.H. – Nate Champion flirted with a triple-double to help the third-seeded Le Moyne College to a 73-59 win over second-seeded Franklin Pierce University on Sunday afternoon in the Northeast-10 Conference Championships quarterfinals in NCAA Division II men’s basketball.

The senior from Logansport finished the game with 10 points, eight assists and seven rebounds. His sixth assist of the game moved him past Rob Atene and into seventh place on the program’s career assists chart with 457.

Le Moyne (17-10), which has won four straight games and yielded only 56.25 points per game in the span, advances to the NE-10 semifinals for the third time, including the second time in the last six years. The Dolphins, who were ranked 10th in this past week’s NCAA East Region rankings, will travel to Southern Connecticut State University, the top seed in the Northeast Division, at 7 p.m. tonight. The Owls swept the two regular-season meetings, winning 70-69 in Syracuse on Dec. 17 and then 97-75 in New Haven on Feb. 8.
