GRANVILLE, Ohio-  Powered by a 20-0 run midway through the second half, The College of Wooster leapfrogged Denison in the North Coast Athletic Conference standings with a 77-62 win over the Big Red in front of a standing room only crowd at Livingston Gymnasium.

The two teams entered the game tied atop the NCAC standings at 11-2.  Wooster was riding an eight-game winning streak and the Big Red was in the midst of their first losing skid of the season after consecutive losses to Wittenberg and Ohio Wesleyan.

After a competitive first half, Wooster went into the locker room with 40-33 lead thanks to 17 first half points by Fighting Scot senior, Dan Fanelly.

Denison opened the second half as the aggressor.  Three-pointers by David Meurer and Matthew Bauer allowed them to cut the deficit to 42-40 with 16:39 to play. 

That's when the floodgates opened. 

A trey by Wooster's Milt Davis with 16:17 left sparked a 20-0 run that lasted six minutes.  By the time Jett Speelman managed to muscle one in down low, DU trailed 62-42 with 10 minutes to play and a comeback attempt for the Big Red just wasn't in the cards.

Fanelly led all scorers with 24 points in 32 minutes.  He was 10-of-16 from the field and 3-of-6 from beyond the arc.  Eric Bulic pulled down 10 rebounds and Spencer Williams chipped in 15.

Speelman paced DU with 17 points in 29 minutes.  Bauer added 13 points and 10 rebounds while Meurer chipped in 12.

Wooster shot 50 percent from the field and 44 percent from long range.  Denison connected at a 38 percent clip but was 6-of-25 from 3-point range.

Denison (17-4, 11-3) will try and bounce back on Wednesday, Feb. 8 when they travel to Greencastle, Ind. for an 8 p.m. tip-off against the Tigers.
