BROOKLYN, N.Y.-- The 21st ranked Denison men's basketball team returned to the court for the first time since Dec. 14 with a convincing 79-52 victory over Brooklyn College.

Denison scored 11 of their 37 first half points off turnovers.  That helped them to a 37-21 lead at the intermission.  In the second half, Claude Chandonnet drilled four of his game-high five 3-pointers.  The Big Red also continued their dominance on the glass which limited Brooklyn's second-chance opportunities.  With 14 minutes left in the game, back-to-back 3-pointers by Andrew Castagnetti had DU comfortably out in front with a 27-point lead.  The lead would grow to as much as 32 with five minutes remaining.

Jett Speelman led Denison in scoring with 20 points.  He was 6-of-15 from the field and 4-of-4 from 3-point range.  He also pulled down nine rebounds.  Chandonnet scored 15 points off a 5-of-8 performance from long range.  Bauer chipped in 10 points and 11 boards and Bret Woolard came off the bench for nine points and nine rebounds.

DU shot 39 percent from the field and 64 percent from the free throw line.  Brooklyn was held to 35 percent and 44 percent from the charity stripe.  Michael Tesoriero and Austin Wood led the Bulldogs with 12 points.

Denison returns to action on Tuesday, Jan. 3 when they take on Mount Saint Vincent (N.Y.) at 4 p.m.
