The Tigers led the entire way and took its first double-digit lead with 11:44 left in the first half.  Denison would trim that advantage back down to 23-18 with 8:50 to play, but that would spark a 25-6 run by Wittenberg to close out the half.  That sent the Tigers into the locker room with a comfortable 48-24 advantage.

Denison shot 44 percent for the game and was led by senior Alex Longi who matched his career high with 26 points.  Longi was 9-of-13 from the field and 2-of-3 from 3-point range in 32 minutes played.  David Meurer followed with 10 points and four assists while Darius White chipped in 11 points and three assists.

Wittenberg was paced by Scott Masin who scored 21 points while going 8-for-8 from the field.  Sam Collins was 7-for-7 and finished with 19 points.  Guard Zack Leahy tallied 16 points and led all players with nine assists.

DU committed only nine turnovers while Wittenberg finished with 10.  Wittenberg did most of its damage inside as they scored 48 of its 97 points in the paint.
