DU caps off weekend with win over Quakers

Taylor Lindquist

The Denison women's basketball team moved to 2-0 on the year after closing out the opening weekend of the season with a 64-49 victory over Wilmington on Saturday at Livingston Gym in Granville.

One night removed from a dominating performance against Case, Denison junior Jordan Holmes continued her strong play in the paint with her second-straight 21-rebound outing on Saturday. With Holmes providing the work down low, the offensive door opened up for senior Taylor Lindquist who scored a career-high 18 points to lead all players.

Clinging to a two-point lead after the first quarter, the Big Red blew the game open with an 11-0 run to open the second period. Lindquist provided six of the first eight points, while fellow senior Kellie Arter capped the run off with a three-pointer. A pair of Ja'Cole Tabor free throws shrunk the deficit to 26-15, but an 11-2 burst over the final 3:24 sent Denison into the locker room with a 20-point lead.

Junior Erica Holmes gave DU its largest lead of the game at 39-17 with a jumper to open the scoring in the second half. Trailing 47-25 with 2:09 left in the third, the Quakers started to claw back into the game with 9-0 that carried into the fourth quarter. Wilmington closed the deficit to nine with less than two minutes to play, but a 7-for-8 performance at the foul line over the final 75 seconds secured the Big Red victory.

Lindquist's 18 points came on a 7-for-14 performance from a floor, including two threes, and a 2-for-2 outing at the charity stripe. The senior also dished out a game-high four assists, had three steals and six rebounds. Freshman Valesha Province chipped in 11 points off the bench, while Arter added eight points and three assists. In addition to her 21 rebounds, Holmes also blocked six shots and came away with two thefts.

Brittaney Jefferson led the Quakers with 13 points, while Savannah Hooper added 10. Mackenzie Campbell and Mary Moyer each grabbed seven rebounds, while Tabor pulled down six boards.

Denison (2-0) concludes its three-game homestand on Wednesday (Nov. 18) when they welcome the defending Division III national champion, Thomas More, to Granville. Tip-off from Livingston Gymnasium is scheduled for 7 p.m.
