Denison tops Case in opener

Jordan Holmes

It may have been the season opener, but Jordan Holmes looked to be in mid-season form as Denison defeated Case Western Reserve, 63-57 from Livingston Gymnasium in Granville, Ohio.

One of the preeminent rebounders and shot blockers in the nation, Holmes also showed off her improved offensive game throughout the contest.  The junior finished with 30 points, 21 rebounds and six blocked shots while going 12-of-15 from the floor in 40 minutes.

The Big Red held a 30-27 lead at the half after shooting 44 percent over the first 20 minutes of play.  In the second half, the shooting percentage dipped to 31 percent.  With 2:44 to play, Case cut the Denison lead to 58-56 after a 3-pointer by Kara Hageman.  DU responded at the free throw line, making five of their next six attempts. Meanwhile, The Spartans proceeded to go 0-for-2 with a turnover, sealing the win for Denison.

The Big Red went 22-for-61 from the floor (.361) and outrebounded Case Western Reserve 51-38.  While Holmes scored a game-high 30 points, first-year guard Valesha Province added nine points, five rebounds and three assists off the bench.  Kellie Arter scored eight points and had seven boards while Emily Krumpe followed with six points and seven assists.

Holmes' 30-point effort was one off her career-high set last year against Hiram.  This marked her sixth career game with 20 or more rebounds.

Case was led in scoring by Emily Young who finished with 13 points.  Hillary Hellmann and Kara Hageman both chipped in 11 points.  Hageman led the Spartans on the glass with 11 rebounds.

Denison (1-0) will return to action on Saturday, Nov. 14 when they host Wilmington at 6 p.m.
