Women to host Ohio Wesleyan in NCAC Quarterfinals

Women to host Ohio Wesleyan in NCAC Quarterfinals

Winners of 15-straight to close out the regular season, the Denison women's basketball team will host North Coast Athletic Conference rival Ohio Wesleyan in the opening round of the 2016 NCAC Tournament at Livingston Gym on Tuesday at 6 p.m.

The Big Red captured the top-seed in the tournament after posting an impressive 15-1 record in conference play. DU swept the season series with the eighth-seeded Bishops, winning at home (48-32) on Dec. 8 and in Delaware (58-42) on Jan. 23. With a win in the quarterfinals, Denison earned the right to host the semifinals and finals of the 2016 NCAC Tournament set to take place on Feb. 26-27.

The other quarterfinal games feature sixth-seeded Hiram at third-seeded Kenyon (7 p.m.); No. 7 Wittenberg at No. 2 DePauw (7:30 p.m.); and fifth-seeded Oberlin at No. 4 Allegheny (7:30 p.m.).

Denison is led by five-time NCAC Player of the Week Jordan Holmes who became the NCAC's career rebounding leader in last Saturday's victory at Allegheny. It took the 6-foot-1 junior just 79 career games and less than three years to eclipse the record former OWU standout Jill Myers set in four seasons and 101 contests (1,217). Earlier in the year, Holmes became the conference's career leader in blocks, passing former record holder and Denison alum, Kristin Sheffield (336).

Holmes currently leads the nation in defensive rebounds per game (13.2), and is tied for the national lead with 21 double-doubles. She also ranks second in country in blocks (6.08), rebounds (17.4) per game and field-goal percentage (68.9).

Senior Kellie Arter and junior Emily Krumpe have also started every game this season alongside Holmes. Arter ranks third in the NCAC in 3-pointer percentage (37.5 percent), while Krumpe's 46.4 field-goal percentage is sixth best in the conference.

Tip-off from Livingston Gymnasium is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Tuesday (Feb. 23) and tickets will be $7 for adults and $5 for children, students without a valid NCAC ID and anyone with an NCAC guest pass.  Any NCAC student with a valid NCAC Institution ID will be admitted free of charge.  In addition, the first 50 Denison faculty and staff members with a valid Denison ID will also be admitted free. For those who cannot attend, a live video broadcast of the game will be provided by the Denison Sports Network.
