Winning Streak at 3 after win over Little Giants

Briggs King led Denison with 17 points in the win over Wabash.
Briggs King led Denison with 17 points in the win over Wabash.

The Big Red has strung together a three-game winning streak after a 70-63 victory over visiting Wabash College on Saturday from Livingston Gym.

A 3-pointer from the corner by first-year Patrick Keller with under 10 seconds remaining in the first half sent DU into the locker room with a 37-30 lead.

Denison would never relinquish the lead in the second half as the trio of Dimonde Hale, Briggs King and Alex Longi accounted for 25 of Denison's 33 points in the period. 

The Little Giants would make a run late in the contest, however.  After Jon Akpapunam gave Denison its largest lead at 65-54 with 4:07 to play, the Little Giants would put together a 9-2 run, trimming the Denison lead to four with 2:05 remaining.  Over the final two minutes Wabash would go 0-for-5 from the field and Hale would cash in 3-of-4 attempts at the free throw line to secure the victory.

King led Denison with 17 points while going 6-of-10 from the floor.  Hale added 16 points and a game-high 12 rebounds in his 32 minutes of action.  He was 5-of-11 from the field and was 6-of-9 from the charity stripe.  Longi also reached double figures with 13 points in his 29 minutes.  Akpapunam rounded out Denison's scoring with eight points, five assists and three steals.

Wabash was paced by Daniel Purvlicis' 16 points and 11 rebounds.  Ross Sponsler scored 14 points before fouling out with 6:04 to play.

The win improves Denison's record to 5-5 in North Coast Athletic Conference play while moving them to 7-12 overall.  Wabash's record dips to 5-14 overall and 3-7 in league play.  DU will return to the hardwood on Wednesday (Jan. 30) when they travel to No. 8 Wooster for a 7:30 p.m. tip-off against the Fighting Scots.  This will be the first meeting between Denison and Wooster since last year's NCAC Tournament Championship game that saw the Scots prevail 53-51 in Springfield, Ohio.
