Second-seeded Big Red host OWU in NCAC quarterfinals

Team Huddle

On Tuesday, the Denison women's basketball team will be hosting a "White Out" for the opening round of the 2012 North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament.  The Big Red will open the conference tournament against rival Ohio Wesleyan at 7:30 p.m.

DU won its final six games to close out the regular season and finished tied for second in the NCAC standings with Kenyon.  The Big Red locked up the second seed in the tournament by way of its season sweep of the Ladies.

Denison has won seven NCAC Tournament titles, including six in the last seven years.  The last time the Big Red won the tournament as the No. 2 seed was 2004-05.  Tuesday's game marks the eighth NCAC Tournament meeting between Denison and Ohio Wesleyan, with the Battling Bishops holding a 7-1 advantage.  OWU's tournament winning streak over Denison came to an end in the semifinals of the 2010 NCAC Tournament when the Big Red handed the Bishops an 86-57 loss in Springfield, Ohio.

DU is led by two-time NCAC All-Tournament selection Serafina Nuzzo.  This season, Nuzzo is averaging 12.4 points per game and ranks second in the conference in steals (2.3/game) and fifth in assists (3.1/game).  Sophomore post Jane Windler is averaging 10.5 points and a team-best 6.5 rebounds per contest.  Windler ranks third in the NCAC in field goal percentage, converting 52.6 percent from the floor.

Tip-off from Livingston Gymnasium is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday (Feb. 21) and tickets will be $7 for adults and $5 for children, students without a valid ID and anyone with an NCAC guest pass.  The first 150 Denison faculty and staff members with a valid ID will be admitted free.  In addition, any NCAC student with a valid ID will also be admitted free of charge.  For those who cannot attend, a live video broadcast of that game will be provided by the Denison Sports Network.

In other NCAC Tournament quarterfinal action on Tuesday night, top-seeded DePauw will host eighth-seeded Oberlin; third-seeded Kenyon entertains sixth-seeded Hiram; and fourth-seeded Allegheny takes on fifth-seeded Wittenberg.  The quarterfinal winners will advance to the home court of the highest remaining seed for the semifinals and finals to be played on Feb. 24-25.
