DU secures NCAC title with win over Hiram

DU secures NCAC title with win over Hiram

The Denison women's basketball team secured its fourth North Coast Athletic Conference regular season title and first since 2011 following a 63-46 victory over Hiram on Wednesday night at Livingston Gymnasium in Granville. With the win, the Big Red extended its current winning streak to 14 games.

Denison erupted out of the blocks, scoring 20 of the game's first 27 points to build a 13-point lead through 10 minutes of play. The Big Red opened the second period with an impressive 17-4 run that resulted in their largest lead of the night at 37-11 before entering the locker room with a 37-13 advantage.

The Terriers held a seven-point scoring edge in the second half, shrinking the deficit to 14 with just under seven minutes remaining in regulation. However, an 11-4 burst late in the fourth quarter allowed the home team to walk off the court with a 14-point victory.

For the second time this season, junior Jordan Holmes went a perfect 10-for-10 from the field en route to a 25-point performance, her seventh 20+ point outing of the season. In addition to matching her own single-game school record for field-goal percentage, Holmes' 10-for-10 mark also bumped up her nationally-ranked conversion rate to 69.9 percent which ranks third in Division III. The 6-foot-1 post also pulled down 14 rebounds, had five steals and blocked four shots in 39 minutes.

Senior Kellie Arter chipped in 11 points behind three 3-pointers, while junior Emily Krumpe finished with eight points and five rebounds. Senior Taylor Lindquist dished out five assists and had two blocks.

Allison Vannoy and Mercedes Jones co-led Hiram (12-13, 6-10 NCAC) with 12 points each, while Kalyee Shockely and Dana Perrotta chipped in eight apiece.  Vannoy also dished out seven assists and registered three steals, while Shockley had three assists and two thefts.

The Big Red (21-3, 14-1 NCAC) will close out the regular season on Saturday when they travel to Meadville, Pa. to take on Allegheny. Tip-off is scheduled for 1 p.m.
