GAMBIER, Ohio-- David Meurer exploded for 31 points as No. 10 Denison pulled away for an 82-67 victory over Kenyon from Tomsich Arena. With the win, Denison moves to 16-1, marking the best start in 115 seasons of men's basketball at DU.

Denison and Kenyon traded baskets for the first five minutes, until the Lords tied the game at 10 with 15:12 left in the half. Denison called a 30-second timeout and came out of that break with a 7-0 run. The Big Red extended their lead to 10 with 7:03 left in the period, but the Lords closed the gap, getting to within one point as the halftime buzzer sounded.

Meurer scored 13 points and was a perfect 5-of-5 from the field and 3-of-3 from beyond the arc after the first period. As a team, Denison shot 61.5 percent (8-of-13) from three, but 10 turnovers allowed the Lords to keep the game close.

Starting the second half, Denison maintained the lead, but the Lords remained within striking distance, as the Big Red lead did not extend past six points until more than 12 minutes into the half.

Kenyon cut the deficit to 52-50 with 12:06 remaining. Denison responded with a 13-2 run that pushed the lead to double-digits and put the game away. The Big Red lead grew to as many as 18 in the final minutes.

Denison was led in scoring by Meurer, who finished 12-of-18 from the field and 5-of-7 from beyond the arc. Jett Speelman totaled 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting, 3-of-4 from outside. Devon Pitts tied Speelman with a team-high six rebounds.

Bennett Grigull and Ethan Shapiro led Kenyon with 12 points apiece. The Lords' bench finished with 28, led by Ben Stern's 11 points and Alexander Powell's 10.

As a team, Denison shot 49.2 percent from the field and made 12-of-22 three-pointers (54.5 percent). They also finished with a +17 rebounding margin, 44-27, and scored 15 points off 12 Kenyon turnovers.

With the win, their eighth in a row, the Big Red are now 16-1 overall and 10-0 in North Coast Athletic Conference play. Kenyon falls to 4-13 overall, 3-7 in conference.

Denison will be back in action on Wednesday, Jan. 25, when they host Oberlin College. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. from Livingston Gymnasium.
