GRANVILLE, Ohio -- In a rematch from last year's North Coast Athletic Conference Quarterfinal round, conference rivals Denison and Ohio Wesleyan will face off in the opening round of the 2017 NCAC Tournament at 8 p.m. from Branch Rickey Arena in Delaware, Ohio.

The Big Red enter this year's tournament as the No. 6 seed after finishing in a four-way tie for third place with a 9-7 record. The Bishops, who were also in that tie at 9-7, received the third seed once the ties were broken. The two teams split the season series with each team winning on their home court. On Dec. 14 in Granville, senior Gabrielle Nottage and Jordan Holmes knocked down free throws in the final seconds to clip OWU, 49-46. Roughly three weeks ago at Branch Rickey Arena, Ohio Wesleyan handed DU a 72-65 loss.

In other quarterfinal action, top-seeded DePauw hosts the No. 8 seed Wooster at 6 p.m. At 7 p.m., second-seeded Kenyon entertains seventh-seeded Wittenberg and the No. 4 seed Hiram will host fifth-seeded Oberlin.

Denison is led by senior post Jordan Holmes who became the Division III career leader in rebounds and blocks this season. With 1,662 rebounds, Holmes is currently tied for third on the career list that spans all three divisions of the NCAA. She also ranks third on the career blocks list that includes players from all NCAA divisions. The 6-foot-1 senior has also amassed 1,408 career points in her career which ranks her fourth in program history.

Holmes currently leads the nation in blocks per game (5.72) and total blocks (143), while also ranking second in defensive rebounds per game (11), total rebounds (379) and total rebounds per game (15.2).

Senior Emily Krumpe has started every game this season alongside Holmes. Krumpe is averaging 7.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per game while also converting 42 percent from the field. Freshman guard Alison Schafer is averaging 8.6 points per contest to go along with 100 rebounds and a team-high tying 34 steals. Seniors Gaby Mehringer and Gabrielle Nottage have dished out 57 and 56 assists, respectively.

Tip-off from Branch Rickey Arena is slated for 8 p.m. on Tuesday (Feb. 21). 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.
