Denison suffers narrow loss to Battling Bishops

The Big Red suffered a 3-point loss at the hands of the Battling Bishops.
The Big Red suffered a 3-point loss at the hands of the Battling Bishops.

Kristen Henning and Emily Julius combined for 22 points and 19 rebounds helping Ohio Wesleyan to a 47-44 victory over the Denison Big Red from Branch Rickey Arena in Delaware, Ohio.

Denison trailed a majority of the game, but had an opportunity to tie the game when they regained possession with 18 seconds remaining.  Kyli Parker's 3-point attempt from the elbow was off the mark but Serafina Nuzzo was there with the rebound.  With the game clock winding down she quickly dribbled out to the corner and fired a turn-around 3-point try that was corralled by OWU's Mary Corbett with one second left.  The Big Red fouled Corbett on the rebound, sending her to the line where she missed the front end of a one-and-one.  The rebound went to Denison's Kinsey Bryant-Lees, but with no time outs remaining the Big Red did not have a change to attempt a desperation 3-pointer.

Nuzzo paced DU with 17 points while going 8-for-16 from the field.  She also snagged nine rebounds to go along with four steals in 38 minutes.  Parker followed with seven points in 22 minutes off the bench.  Mary Margaret Habel was the team leader with six assists.

OWU got 11 points and 10 boards from Julius and 11 points, nine rebounds and four assists from Henning.  Sarah McQuade chipped in nine points, four rebounds, three steals and three assists in 38 minutes.

The Battling Bishops held a 39-32 edge on the glass and were 9-of-14 from the charity stripe.  DU attempted only four free throws on the night and connected on all of them.  As a team, the Big Red shot 33 percent from the field while OWU connected at a 35 percent clip.

DU drops to 7-7 overall and 2-3 in the North Coast Athletic Conference while OWU improves to 3-11 and 2-3 in conference play.  Denison will try and rebound on Saturday when they host Wittenberg University at 1 p.m.
