ALLIANCE, Ohio-- The University of Mount Union outscored Denison 23-8 in the fourth quarter, resulting in a 65-59 victory over the Big Red on Monday night at The McPherson Academic and Athletic Complex.

After falling behind by six early in the opening quarter, Denison went on a 16-4 run to finish the period with an 18-12 lead. DU went on to build an 11-point lead with 3:45 remaining in the half before entering the intermission with a 34-30 edge. The Big Red rebuilt an 11-point lead in the third thanks in large part to an 11-1 surge that featured five points from sophomore Valesha Province and four more by freshman Lauren Hofer.

Trailing 51-42 heading into the final quarter, Mount Union engineered an impressive 13-2 run to turn a nine-point deficit into a 55-53 lead with 4:43 left in regulation. Senior Jordan Holmes split a pair at the free throw line to close the margin to one, while freshman Alison Schafer put DU back in front 57-55 with a three-pointer at 3:39.

After the two teams exchanged giveaways, the Purple Raiders' Erin White tied the contest with a layup at 2:38. Casey Morrissette followed the white bucket with another score inside the final two minutes of play. Now down 61-58, Hofer connected on one of two attempts at the charity stripe to pull within two with 25 seconds on the clock. Abbey Bartoszewicz and Jaime Sanborn secured Mount Union's come-from-behind victory by going a combined 4-for-4 at the foul line down the stretch.

The Big Red shot 42 percent (22-for-52) from the field, while the home team converted a 37-percent clip (23.for-62) from the floor which was highlighted by a 57-percent conversion rate in the final period. The Purple Raiders held a slight 38-37 edge on the glass, while also outscoring DU in the paint 30-22.

Holmes registered her second double-double of the season with 14 points and a season-high 19 rebounds to go along with five blocks. Gabrielle Nottage chipped in 10 points, two assists and two steals, while Hofer also finished with 10 tallies and three rebounds. Gaby Mehringer led the team with five assists.

Bartoszewicz paced Mount Union with 13 points and three assists, while Sanborn added 10 points, nine rebounds and two blocks.

The Big Red falls to 1-3 on the year, while the Purple Raiders improve to 2-2. Denison returns to action this weekend when they travel to Thomas More College for the Julie Costello Memorial Classic. DU opens play on Saturday (Nov. 26) against Maryville at 2 p.m.
