CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Senior Brittany Atkinson and sophomore Lauren Hofer led the way with 16 points each as Denison women's basketball traveled south on Tuesday night and defeated Mount St. Joseph University, 73-51, at the Harrington Center.

Holding the Lions to 27% shooting for the game, including 3-of-17 from the field in the first and third quarters, Atkinson and sophomore Aliyah Hunter buried the first two three-pointers of the night to open the contest on a 10-4 scoring run for DU. The pair totaled seven points each in the first quarter to take a 22-15 lead into the second frame.

The Big Red began to pull away in the second quarter thanks to a combined eight points from Hofer and Sydney MacBlane that assisted in a 16-3 scoring run to end the half. Denison shot 50 percent from the floor in the second period and outrebounded the Lions, 10-6, to take a 41-25 lead into intermission.

Leading by 16 entering the second half, DU took a 20-point lead with 5:26 to play in the third when an MSJ turnover was finished by Alison Schafer to go up, 48-28. A pair of three from Addie Buzas helped the Big Red take a 51-32 lead entering the final quarter.

The Lions were able to outscore Denison 10-3 to begin the fourth, but the Big Red countered with back-to-back threes from Atkinson and Valesha Province to outscore Mount St. Joseph in all four periods and earn their third win of the season, 73-51.

Denison won the rebounding battle, 50-37, and had three different players finish with double-figures. Hofer (16) and Hunter (11) totaled career-highs in points scored, while Atkinson added eight rebounds to her 16 points. The Lions were led by Lainee Studer with 15 points and six assists and Maddie Haberthy's 12 points.

The Big Red will return to action this Saturday, Nov. 25 as they travel to Marietta, Ohio to take part in the 33rd annual Jim Meagle Turkey Shoot at Marietta College. They will square off with the Pioneers at 6 p.m. at Ban Johnson Arena.
