DU opens 2016 with win at Wooster

Gabby Nottage

The Denison women's basketball team kicked off the New Year with a decisive 67-48 North Coast Athletic Conference victory over the College of Wooster on Sunday afternoon at Timken Gymnasium in Wooster, Ohio.

The Big Red built a 13-point lead after outscoring the Scots 19-6 in the opening 10 minutes of play. Denison matched that point total in the second en route to taking an 18-point advantage into the break. In the first 20 minutes of play, DU connected on 16 of 30 attempts for a 53-percent conversion rate. The Big Red assisted on 13 of their 16 made buckets in the half and scored 22 of their 38 points in the paint. Defensively, Denison limited Wooster to a 28-percent clip (9-for-32). Junior Jordan Holmes secured her 10th double-double of the season after posting 15 points and 10 rebounds in 20 minutes.

Valesha Province gave Denison its largest lead of the game at 47-23 midway through the third period before the Big Red completed the quarter with a 21-point advantage. Wooster outscored Denison by two in the final period, but the deficit was too much for the Scots to overcome.

Holmes finished with a game-high 17 points after going 8-for-10 from the field. The 6-foot-1 junior also grabbed 16 rebounds and blocked seven shots in 36 minutes of action. With her seven rejections, Holmes moved into seventh on the Division III career blocks list. She now needs just four blocks to reach 400 for her career.

Senior Taylor Lindquist and sophomore Akilah Fletcher each chipped in nine points, while senior Kellie Arter also had seven tallies. Juniors Gabrielle Nottage and Gaby Mehringer each dished out four assists, while Fletcher had two steals.

Anna Gibbs led Wooster with 12 points, while Lauren Hancher added 10 points and a team-best six rebounds and three steals.

The Big Red held a slight 42-39 edge on the glass and turned 12 Wooster turnovers into 14 points. Denison also assisted on 20 of their 26 makes and scored 32 points in the paint.

Denison, winners of eight of their last nine, improve to 10-3 on the year and 3-1 in NCAC play, while the loss drops Wooster to 5-7 overall and 1-2 in conference action. The Big Red closes out its five-game road stretch on Wednesday at DePauw. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
