HIRAM, Ohio-- Denison used a strong second quarter performance to defeat the Hiram Terriers 56-37 on Wednesday night at Price Gymnasium. Outscoring their opponent 21-6 in the second quarter, Denison didn't look back en route to their ninth win of the season and sixth win in conference play.

In the win, Jordan Holmes continued to move up the Division III career rebounding list.  Her 21 rebound performance tonight moved her into third place, all-time with 1,538. She is just eight rebounds away from taking over first place. Ronda Jo Miller of Gallaudet currently leads with 1,545 career boards.

After the first quarter, Denison held a 12-10 advantage but a three by freshman Addie Buzas early in the second quarter got the Big Red going offensively. Meghan Stornes and Lauren Hofer both converted on layups on back-to-back possessions as the Big Red found themselves on a 7-0 run to start the quarter.

The three-ball was working for the Big Red as Alison Schafer and Valesha Province hit consecutive treys with one minute left in the second, helping DU take their largest lead of the game at 17.

Hiram was able to get the deficit down to 13 after a layup by Dana Perrotta with 4:29 remaining in the third quarter. That would be the closest the Terriers would get as Gaby Mehringer and Buzas scored on consecutive possessions, increasing the lead to 18 heading into the fourth.

The lead grew to as much as 25 in the fourth and when the dust settled, DU limited the Terriers to their lowest offensive output of the season. Perrotta led Hiram with 11 points. Kayla Yost chipped in 10 and grabbed six boards. Hiram shot 24 percent from the field and committed 10 turnovers.

Schafer was the only Big Red player to score in double-digits as the first-year finished with 15 points off the bench. Ten different players for Denison recorded at least two points while assisting on 12 of 22 field goals. Denison held an advantage on the boards as they outrebounded Hiram 51-27 and their bench put up 27 compared to the Terriers four.

Denison (9-8, 5-2) continues their road trip as they travel to Oberlin on Saturday, Jan. 21. Tip-off scheduled for 1 p.m.
