Big Red tops NCAC rival OWU

Emily Krumpe

The Denison women's basketball team led wire-to-wire against North Coast Athletic Conference rival Ohio Wesleyan on Tuesday evening, eventually picking up a 48-32 win at Livingston Gym in Granville.

The Big Red defense held the Bishops to a 1-for-10 performance from the field in the opening 10 minutes and forced OWU into eight turnovers which DU turned into seven points. The scoring was a lot closer in the second quarter, but Denison entered the locker room with a double-digit lead thanks to a Lucy Bancone jumper with just under a minute left in the half.

Denison never relinquished their double-digit advantage, leading by 14 points on three occasions in the third quarter and by as much as 19 in the final period. Junior Jordan Holmes capped off a 10-2 run with a free throw in the fourth to give the Big Red their largest lead of the night at 46-27 with 2:19 to play.

After shooting just 35 percent from the field in the first half, DU hit 11-of-22 in the second for a 50-percent conversion rate. The Big Red also overcame 24 turnovers by holding Ohio Wesleyan to just nine points off those giveaways. On the flip side, Denison generated 16 points off 18 takeaways. The Big Red almost doubled OWU's rebounding total (47-24) and dominated scoring in the paint, 28-8.

Holmes led all scored with 17 points on 8-of-10 from the field. She also added 18 rebounds, five blocks and two steals. Junior Emily Krumpe finished with a career-high tying 14 points after going 7-for-10 from the field. Senior Kellie Arter chipped in six points, five rebounds, three assists and three blocks, while Akilah Fletcher grabbed six boards off the bench.

Taylor Dickson led the Bishops with 11 points, while Mercedez Woods pulled down seven rebounds. Megan Kuether had five steals, while Erin Delaney and Hannah Fedorka logged two assists each.

Denison improves to 7-2 on the year and 2-0 in the NCAC, while Ohio Wesleyan falls to 0-6 and 0-2 in conference play. The Big Red will kick off a stretch of five-consecutive road games on Saturday (Dec. 12) when they travel to Springfield, Ohio to take on Wittenberg University at 2 p.m.
