Now trailing 18-7, Denison went on a 7-0 surge to shrink the deficit to four. Jess McCoy closed out the opening period with an old-fashioned three-point play to push the CWRU lead back to seven.

The Spartans held a double-digit lead for the majority of the second quarter en route to taking a 39-26 lead into the intermission.

Denison converted 37 percent (20-for-54) from the field while Case Western Reserve shot 39 percent (27-for-69) from the floor. The Big Red held a 43-33 advantage on the glass. The Spartans committed just four turnovers compared to DU's 18 and held a slim 32-30 edge in scoring in the paint.

Holmes led all scorers with 22 points on 10-of-12 from the field and a 2-for-3 showing at the charity stripe. She also grabbed 15 rebounds and blocked nine shots. Freshman Addie Buzas dished out three assists, while Alison Schafer corralled 10 boards, all on the defensive end.

Kara Hageman finished with 20 points, while Hillary Hellmann and Jess McCoy chipped in 18 and 15 points, respectively.  McCoy also grabbed eight rebounds, while Alexis Amburgey handed out five assists.
