Denison recovered from a sluggish first half by outscoring The College of Wooster 41-27 over the final 20 minutes, resulting in a 67-56 victory over the Fighting Scots on Tuesday night.

Wooster led 24-19 at the break thanks to 18 first half points by Jessica Wingen.  The Big Red had no answer for Wingen in the paint as the senior started the game 9-for-13 from the floor.

In the second half, DU would take its first lead of the game with 15:19 to play after a Nicole Coggins jumper fell.  Wooster would tie the game at 36-36 with 12:03 left after a Sydney Grier 3-pointer but that would be as close as the Scots would get.

Denison would go on a 13-5 run over the next five minutes to take an 8-point lead with 7:28 to play.  Wooster would make one last push, getting to within three points with 6:09 left after a Maura Hall basket down low.  The current North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week, Serafina Nuzzo, hit a 3-pointer that was followed by another 3-pointer by Kinsey Bryant-Lees.  Down the stretch the Big Red would push its lead out to a game-high 12 points before locking up the 11-point win.

DU had four players in double figures as Nuzzo led the way with 14 points followed by 13 points and seven rebounds by Mary Margaret HabelGretchen Staubach and Coggins both added 11 points while Bryant-Lees came off the bench with six points.

Wingen finished with 26 points and 12 rebounds in 31 minutes to lead Wooster.  Denison shot just 15 percent from the field in the first half (5-of-32), but in the second half they connected on 16-of-28 shots (.571) to finish at 35 percent for the game.  Wooster shot 36 percent for the game and won the rebounding battle 41-40.

The win moves the Big Red's winning streak to four games and improves their record to 12-8 overall and 7-4 in the NCAC.  Wooster drops to 6-13 and 1-9 in league play.  DU will return to action on Friday (Feb. 1) against Kenyon College at 7:30 p.m. in Granville.
