DU nearly pulls off incredible comeback

Briggs King scored a career-high 21 points at Hanover.
Briggs King scored a career-high 21 points at Hanover.

A furious second half comeback by the Big Red fell just short as Hanover outlasted Denison, 87-84, from Collier Arena in Hanover, Ind.

DU trailed by as many as 19 in the second half, but thanks to some dead-eye outside shooting, they would back into the contest. 

Down 18 with 9:07 left in the game, Denison would go on a 22-6 run over the next five minutes of play, fueled by a combined four 3-pointers from Robby Weingart and Darius White.

A Briggs King jumper and a blocked shot at the other end by Dimonde Hale would give DU the basketball, down only three, with just under three minutes to play.  That's when White would strike again, knocking down his fourth trifecta on the day, and tying the score at 84-84 with 2:18 remaining. That would also mark the first tie game situation since the opening tip-off.

Hanover would strong on the glass all afternoon and they would come up with two big offensive rebounds on the ensuing possession.  On the final rebound by Brian Gunter, the big man would convert the put back, giving a two-point lead back to the home team with 44 seconds left.

Denison would get a good look from deep, but Weingart's 3-ball was off the mark.  A quick foul would send Hanover's Ryan Nowicki to the line where he would split the pair, leaving his squad with a three point lead with 13 ticks remaining.

The Big Red would get into its offense but they were guarded well by the Panthers and pushed out beyond the arc.  As the final seconds ticked off the clock, Longi would take a turn-around 3-pointer from the wing that clanged off the iron as time expired.

DU put on a display from deep as they finished 15-for-27 from 3-point range.  The 15 3-point field goals were just two off the single-game record set in 1996.  It also marked the most by a Denison team since they connected on 14 in a victory over Oberlin in the 2005-06 season.

King led Denison in scoring with a career-high 21 points off 8-of-14 shooting.  Weingart was 5-of-9 from downtown for 15 points.  White was 4-of-5 on his 3-point tries for 12 points and Hale finished with 11 points and a team-high seven rebounds.  Alex Longi followed with nine points, nine assists and five rebounds.

Tim Bass paced Hanover with 18 points.

The loss drops the Big Red's record to 2-1.  They will host Case Western Reserve at 7 p.m. on Tuesday (Nov. 20) in Livingston Gymnasium.
