David Meurer scored a career-high 38 points in Denison's 92-76 win over Capital University from Livingston Gymnasium in Granville on Wednesday night.  Meurer's 38-point effort marked the most points scored by a Denison player since Brian Malinowski scored 38 in a win over Wilmington in 1994.

The Big Red led nearly the entire game.  They asserted themselves in the final minute of the first half when they scored twice in the final 15 seconds to take an eight point lead into the locker room.  Meurer's coast-to-coast layup as time expired gave him 20 points at the break.

In the second half, Denison went on a 20-6 run over the first six minutes to open up a 23 point lead.  With 11:52 to play, Darius White drained his fourth 3-pointer of the game to give the Big Red its largest lead at 26.  White followed Meurer with 18 points by going 6-of-10 from the field and 4-of-7 from beyond the arc.  He also led the way with four assists and two steals in 28 minutes.

Joining Meurer and White in double figures was Jett Speelman who tallied 16 points and seven rebounds.  Matthew Bauer and Garrett Collier followed with seven points apiece.

The Big Red shot 58 percent (34-of-59) while Capital shot the ball at a 54 percent clip (29-of-54).  Denison held a 32-26 advantage on the boards while DU excelled in transition, outscoring the Crusaders 21-6 in fast break situations.

Meurer's 38 points materialized through one of the finest shooting performances in Denison history.  He was 15-of-17 and a perfect 4-of-4 from beyond the arc.  He was two field goals shy of tying Denison's single-game record of 17 field goals held by Charlie Claggett, set in 1967-68 and Todd Harris set in 1974-75.

Capital was led by Mark Minch's 25 points and 11 rebounds.

Denison improves to 7-5 while Capital falls to 7-5.  This marks Denison's third win over Capital in the last four meetings.  The Big Red will return to action on Saturday, Jan. 9, when they travel to Wabash for a 3 p.m. tip-off.
