Keydets vs. Flames There was an awful lot of red in :00 the Vines Center tonight as 6th seeded
Keydets took on the 3es seeded Flames.

In the first half VMI's Matt
Murrer passes off to Reggie Williams
who gives it back to Murrer who drives
down low for the hoop. He had 21. VMI
led 44-to-38 at halftime

LU counters with some inside
muscle as Larry Blair spots Anthony
Smith who goes to the glass for the

Senior Damien Hubbard would then
come through with one heck of an effort

quickly. Tim Westmoreland drains a
three from the right wing.

recover they were down 12 to 0 after

That's what some Delta Zeta sorority
girls say happened on DePauw
University's campus.

The girls say they did everything
that was asked of them but were told to
leave the sorority house because the
national organization decided they
weren't pretty enough.

University officials say they're
still investigating, and it's possible
that the entire sorority chapter could
be asked to leave the campus.
