    EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) -- Mohamed Hachad scored 17 points as Northwestern easily defeated Division III DePauw, 69-36, Friday night.

    Freshman guard Craig Moore scored a career-high 12 points, hitting 4-of-7 3-pointers, and grabbed a game-high eight rebounds for the Wildcats (6-4). Senior forward Vedran Vukusic scored 11.

    Northwestern used its defensive pressure and speed to put the Tigers away with a 19-0 run in the second half. DePauw's Alex Stewart hit a 3-pointer to make it 37-29 before the Wildcats held their visitors scoreless for the next 10 minutes.

    Hachad, who hit 8-of-12 shots, hit a 3-pointer and scored off his own steal to start the run. The Wildcats had 13 steals and scored 21 fast-break points.

    DePauw was in the game early, going on a 10-3 run to tie it 12-12 with 12:10 left before the Wildcats responded with a 20-5 run.

    Brian Oilar scored nine points to lead the Tigers (4-6), who shot just 29.4 percent and committed 19 turnovers.
