GRANVILLE, Ohio -- The 17th-ranked DePauw Tigers outscored Denison 17-4 in the second overtime period en route to a 63-50 victory on Wednesday night at Livingston Gymnasium. The loss brought the Big Red's winning streak to an end at six games.

After trailing by as many as eight in the first half, Denison entered the locker room down 25-19. The Big Red engineered a 9-3 run that featured a six-minute stretch where DePauw didn't register a point. That burst helped the home team tie the contest at 32-32 as the two squads entered the final period of regulation.

In a tightly contested fourth quarter that saw neither team take a multi-possession lead, the Big Red found themselves in front by three after seniors Jordan Holmes and Gabrielle Nottage knocked down jumpers in the paint on back-to-back trips down the court. Melinda Franke quickly answered for the Tigers with a triple at the top of the key to tie the game for the sixth time at 41-41, which ended up being the score at the end of regulation.

Emily Krumpe broke the tie in the first overtime with a mid-range jumper off a pass from Holmes. Alison Schafer increased the lead after splitting a pair at the free throw line with 2:37 left in OT. After Maya Howard cut the margin to one with a layup, Schafer returned to the line and successfully converted both attempts to rebuild a three-point edge. With time winding down in the stanza, Howard attempted a game-tying three that wouldn't go. However, her teammate Sydney Kopp came up with the offensive board and gave Howard one more chance. This time Howard's shot fell to pull the Tigers even at 46-46. Neither team scored in the final 12 seconds, sending the game into another extra session.

In the second OT, DePauw used a 10-2 surge to build a 56-48 lead. After a pair of free throws by Schafer cut the deficit to six, the Tigers racked up the final seven points of the game to secure the 13-point win.

The Big Red shot 32 percent (18-for-56) from the field, while DePauw connected on 31 percent (21-for-67) of their attempts. The Tigers held a 46-40 edge on the glass, while also forcing Denison into 21 turnovers. DePauw also went 17-for-25 (68 percent) from the foul line, including a 9-for-13 performance in the second overtime.

Holmes led Denison with 12 points, eight rebounds and seven blocks, while Schafer chipped in nine tallies and six boards. Nottage logged seven points and three assists, while Lauren Hofer added six points and six rebounds.

Five Tigers scored in double figures led by Howard's 12 points. She also had seven rebounds, four assists and four steals. Franke and Emily Budde each had 11 tallies, while Claire Ryan and Taylor Howard registered 10 points and eight rebounds apiece.

The loss drops Denison to 8-8 overall and 5-2 in the North Coast Athletic Conference, while DePauw improves to 15-1 on the year and 7-0 in league action. The Big Red returns to action next Wednesday (Jan. 18) when they travel to Hiram, Ohio to take on the Terriers. Tip-off is slated for 6 p.m.

Note: Tonight's game was delayed 25 minutes, six seconds into the first quarter due to a power outage.
