Gretchen Staubach led Denison with 9 rebounds at Wittenberg.
Gretchen Staubach led Denison with 9 rebounds at Wittenberg.

It was an off shooting night for the Big Red and the Wittenberg Tigers capitalized by handing Denison a 59-45 defeat on Wednesday night in Springfield, Ohio.

Denison trailed 32-16 at the half after shooting 5-of-24 over the first 20 minutes.  In the second half they improved their shooting percentage and got to the free throw line 16 times (making 12).  DU outscored the Tigers 29-27 in the final stanza, but that wouldn't be enough to erase the 16-point halftime deficit.

The Big Red got 16 points from Serafina NuzzoGretchen Staubach paced DU down low with 13 points and nine rebounds in 29 minutes.

The Wittenberg bench, led by Amber Rice's game-high 17 points outscored the Denison bench 38-5.  The Tigers' next leading scorer was Enri Small with 8 points.

Denison connected on 17-of-22 from the charity stripe but was edged out on the glass, 40-33.  The loss drops the Big Red's record to 13-9 overall and 8-5 in the North Coast Athletic Conference.  It also snaps their 5-game winning streak that dated back to Jan. 16.  Wittenberg improves to 11-11 and 7-6 in the league.

Denison will try and bounce back on Saturday when they host Allegheny College at 3 p.m.  That game will be the team's annual Play4Kay game.  Money collected at the gate for both the women's game versus Allegheny and the men's game at 1 p.m. will go toward breast cancer research.
