WILMINGTON, Ohio -- Mary Moyer's three-pointer with 1.6 seconds left in regulation lifted the Wilmington Quakers to a 59-56 win over Denison on Tuesday night from Raizk Arena. Freshman Alison Schafer had a chance to tie the game at the buzzer, but her three from the right corner rimmed out.

The Big Red held a slim 18-16 lead after the opening 10 minutes of play before a 10-4 run to open the second quarter put the home team ahead by six at 28-22. DU engineered a 5-0 run to shrink the deficit to one before another surge sent the Quakers into the locker room with a 36-29 lead. Wilmington led the entire third quarter, building as large as a 15-point advantage with 6:44 on the clock. The Big Red slowly chipped away at the lead as they trailed 49-41 at the end of third periods.

After six empty possessions to opening the final quarter, senior point guard Gabrielle Nottage ended the drought with a jumper in the paint to close the margin to 49-43. Fellow senior Gaby Mehringer came up with a steal before feeding Nottage for a fast break score that made it a four-point deficit. The Quakers' Mackenzie Campbell rebuilt a seven-point lead before a pair of Mehringer free throws and a layup by senior Emily Krumpe pulled the Big Red to within three.

Emily Harman pushed the Wilmington lead back to five, but a Valesha Province triple with 3:06 to play made it a one-possession game once again. After the two teams traded buckets, Mehringer buried a jumper to tie the contest with 25 seconds to play. Moyer answered the Mehringer basket with a triple that ended up setting the final score.

Wilmington held a 26-18 advantage in the paint and a slight edge on the glass, 34-31.

Mehringer led all scorers with a career-high 18 points after going 7-for-9 from the field and a perfect 4-for-4 at the foul line. Nottage followed with 12 tallies, while Jordan Holmes had a game-high nine rebounds and five blocks.

Campbell paced the Quakers with 13 points, while Moyer chipped in 12. Both players pulled down six rebounds apiece, while Harman had a team-best seven boards. Campbell also had three steals, while De'Jah Locke dished out four assists.

Denison falls to 0-1 on the year, while Wilmington improves to 1-0 on the season. The Big Red returns to action this weekend when they host a four-team invitational at Livingston Gym. Denison will kick the two-day event off against Otterbein. Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
