Alex Longi had 6 points and 5 rebounds against Catholic.

Fifteenth-ranked Catholic University shot over 50 percent from the floor and behind the arc en route to a 77-35 win over Denison in the opening round of the CUA-Holiday Inn College Park Classic on Saturday in Washington, D.C.

The Big Red struggled to find its offensive rhythm in the opening 20 minutes, converting just 27 percent from the field and 15 percent from behind the arc.  On the flip side, the Cardinals hit 18-of-35 (51 percent) from the floor and shot a 43 percent clip from long range.  Additionally, the home team turned nine DU turnovers into 15 points.  At the break, Catholic held a 42-16 advantage over visiting DU.

In the second period, the Cardinals continued their hot shooting, eventually building a 43-point lead with 2:42 left in the contest.  As a team, Catholic knocked down 7-of-10 from three-point range and shot exactly 50-percent from the field in the final stanza.

The Cardinals were 29-of-57 (51 percent) from the floor, including 10-of-17 from three.  They also held a 38-29 advantage on the glass, and committed just seven turnovers compared to 13 Denison giveaways.

Senior Dimonde Hale paced DU with 14 points and eight rebounds in 26 minutes.  Junior Alex Longi and sophomore Briggs King each added six points.  Longi also grabbed five rebounds, while King corralled four boards.

Steve Limberiou notched a double-double to pace the Cardinal attack.  Limberious' 27 points came off a 10-for-15 performance from the field and a 7-for-10 outing from behind the arc.  The sophomore also grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds.  Chris Kearney and Shawn Holmes added 15 and 14 points, respectively.

Denison falls to 4-6, while Catholic improves to 8-1.  The Big Red returns to the court on Sunday against Delaware Valley, who dropped an 80-73 decision to Husson.  Sunday's consolation game is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
