Denison maintains NCAC lead with win over Ladies

Valesha Province

A Gaby Mehringer free throw and a Taylor Lindquist offensive rebound inside the final 10 seconds of play secured a 47-44 Denison victory over Kenyon on Wednesday night at Livingston Gymnasium in Granville. With the win, Denison held on to its half-game lead in the North Coast Athletic Conference and ran its current home winning streak against the Ladies to nine straight.

For the first 14 minutes of the game, neither team had more than a one-possession lead over the other. All that changed over the course of two minutes and 23 seconds when the Big Red engineered a 9-0 run that gave them their largest lead of the contest at 24-13. That run, fueled by back-to-back buckets from Emily Krumpe and a Kellie Arter 3-pointer, helped the home team take a 26-18 lead into the locker room.

Trailing by double digits early in the third quarter, Kenyon put together a 12-3 surge that shrunk the deficit to one. The run featured three 3-pointers, including a pair from Bailey Dominguez. Sidney Cera also knocked down a trio at the foul line, while Jessica Gerber capped the run off with a trifecta.

Denison scored seven of the final nine points of the quarter to hold a 38-32 edge heading into the final stanza. The Ladies made another push in the opening stages of the fourth, eventually tying the contest at 40-40 with a Dominguez triple at 5:29.

Freshman Valesha Province answered the Dominguez three with one of her own to retake the lead for DU. Cera responded with a bucket on the ensuing possession to make it a one-point affair, but another clutch three from Province with 2:45 to play rebuilt a four-point advantage.

Ifeoma Archimalo pulled Kenyon to within two with a jumper in the paint with less than two minutes to play. Neither team was able to convert from the field over the next minute and a half which kept it a one-score game. With 10 seconds to go, junior Jordan Holmes blocked a Cera shot and haul in the defensive board, forcing the Ladies to foul Mehringer. The junior split the pair at the line, but a key offensive board by Lindquist, coupled with some allusive play by the Big Red, allowed Denison to run out the final nine seconds.

Holmes notched her 12th double-double of the season with 10 points and 18 rebounds to go along with six blocks. With the six rejections, the junior became just the sixth player in Division III history to reach 400 blocks for her career. Holmes now ranks fifth on the Division III all-time career blocks list with 403, passing Green Mountain's Emma Buckley (399 – 2007-10) and Wilson's Angela Grove (400 – 1997-00).

Krumpe also chipped in 10 points after going 5-for-8 from the field, while Arter and Province each added nine tallies behind three 3-pointers apiece. Lindquist dished out a game-high five assists and pulled in four rebounds, while Gabrielle Nottage had four helpers and four boards. Nottage and Holmes also came away with two steals each.

Dominguez led all scorers with 16 points after going 6-for-10 from the field, including a 4-for-7 outing from beyond the arc. Archimalo paced the Ladies with seven rebounds, while Griffin Tullis has three assists.

Denison, winners of five straight, improves to 12-3 overall and 5-1 in the NCAC, while Kenyon falls to 9-6 and 3-3 in league play. The Big Red returns to action on Saturday when they host Allegheny at 1 p.m.
