Big Red surges past Pioneers in OT

TRUJILLO ALTO, P.R.-- Denison senior Jordan Holmes posted her sixth-career triple-double to lead the Big Red to a 61-53 overtime victory over the University of Wisconsin-Platteville on Wednesday morning at the Ruben Zayas Montanez Coliseum.

After seven lead changes and nine tie-game situations over the course of 30 minutes, Denison and Platteville entered the final quarter of regulation deadlocked at 36-36. The Pioneers built their largest lead of the game in the fourth, holding a seven-point advantage on two separate occasions.

Down 49-42 with less than two and a half to play, seniors Gabrielle Nottage and Holmes each split a pair at the foul line to shrink the margin to five. Kassie Hansen extended the UW-Platteville lead back to six with a single free throw, but a three-pointer by freshman Addie Buzas made it a one-possession ball game with 1:25 to play.

The score remained 50-47 until the final 10 seconds of regulation. After Holmes blocked a layup attempt by Morgan Horstman, the Big Red had one last chance to push the game into an extra period. Following a DU timeout, sophomore Valesha Province buried a game-tying three at the top of the key with 6.5 seconds on the clock. The Pioneers' potential game-winning shot from the foul line came after the horn, forcing the game into overtime.

The Big Red led the entire extra period, outscoring Platteville 11-3. Denison scored the first six points of OT to build a two-possession lead, while their final five tallies came at the foul line over the final 90 seconds.

Holmes finished with a game-high 21 points after going 8-for-16 from the field and scoring five more tallies at the charity stripe. She also grabbed 25 rebounds and blocked 10 shots. Holmes' sixth triple-double of her career makes her the Division III all-time leader, breaking a tie with Muhlenberg junior Brandi Vallely. She is also one triple-double away from tying the all-division record held by Penn State's Suzie McConnell (1985-88), St. Mary's (Ca.) Louella Tomlinson (2008-11) and Colorado Christian's Christina Whitelaw (2011-14) who accomplished the feat seven times during their respective careers.

Province provided eight points in 27 minutes, while senior Erica Holmes chipped in seven tallies. Alison Schafer, Buzas and Nottage all had six points each, while Nottage and Emily Krumpe each handed out three assists.

Horstman scored 18 points to lead UW-Platteville, while Hartman added nine points and seven rebounds. Hansen pulled down a team-high nine rebounds, while also coming away with three steals.

With the victory, Denison improves to 5-7 on the year, while Platteville falls to 3-7. The Big Red closes out play in Puerto Rico on Thursday when they take on No. 19 Albright. Tip-off is scheduled for 9 a.m. EST.
