Longi honored by the NCAC

Denison junior Alex Longi was named the North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week after leading the Big Red to victories over Oberlin and Wabash.  With the pair of wins DU moved to .500 in the NCAC at 5-5 and now sits alone in fifth-place in the league standings.

Longi posted 19 points, seven rebounds and six assists against Oberlin and then followed with a 13-point performance in DU's win over Wabash. On the season, Longi is shooting 47 percent from the field and has a +1.5 assist/turnover ratio as DU's primary ball handler.

Denison will return to action on Wednesday when they travel to No. 8 Wooster for a 7:30 tip-off against the Fighting Scots.
