OBERLIN, Ohio-- An 18-2 fourth quarter run propelled the Oberlin Yeowomen to a 47-40 victory over the Denison Big Red at Phillips Gym.

Jordan Holmes moved into second place all-time in career rebounds in Division III. With five boards, she now has 1,543 for her career, only three away from breaking the record of 1,545 held by Ronda Jo Miller, who played at Gallaudet from 1997-2000. Holmes also finished with nine points and three blocks.

Denison posted a strong opening half, outscoring Oberlin 24-19.  They shot 38.5 percent from the field and forced eight Yeowomen turnovers.  Coming out of the locker room, a 7-2 run extended the Denison lead to double digits, 31-21.  A 4-0 Oberlin burst, cut into the difference, but the Big Red went up by eight on the quarter's final bucket, a layup by Emily Krumpe.

The Yeowomen's fourth quarter run came mostly at the charity stripe. Oberlin went to the line 16 times, converting 13 free throws. In the quarter, Abby Andrews was 7-of-8 at the line and finished with 11 points.

The Big Red were led in scoring by Krumpe, who finished with 12 points on 6-of-12 shooting from the field. She also grabbed five rebounds. Alison Schafer chipped in eight points off the bench, leading Denison with two made three-pointers, six rebounds, and three steals. Gaby Mehringer added six points and three assists.

Oberlin was led in scoring and rebounding by Andrews, who finished with 23 points, eight rebounds, and four blocks. The Yeowomen blocked 18 shots as a team, led by Olivia Canning, who sent back six shot attempts.

Denison falls back to .500 with the loss at 9-9 overall. They are now 6-3 in North Coast Athletic Conference play. Oberlin moves to 6-11 with the win, 5-5 in the NCAC.

Denison returns to the court on Wednesday, January 25, when they travel to Gambier, Ohio, to take on the Kenyon Ladies at 7:30 p.m.
