GRANVILLE, Ohio--  Connor Seipel scored 31 points by connecting on 14-of-21 shots helping Wittenberg to an 82-72 victory over Denison on Wednesday night at Livingston Gymnasium. 

The Tigers held an eight-point lead at halftime but the Big Red didn't go down without a fight.  After trailing by 11 with 12:29 to play, Conor Fenton capped off a 7-0 run with a 3-pointer to make it a four-point contest at 63-59 with nine minutes left.

Claude Chandonnet's triple with 7:45 to play had Denison knocking on the door at 65-62 but the Tigers responded with a 12-0 run over the next three minutes to put the game away.  Mitch Balser's trey on a feed from Seipel with 4:30 to play gave the Tigers its largest lead at 77-62. 

In addition to Seipel's game-high 31 points, he also led all players with 11 rebounds and five assists while playing 37 minutes.  Jake Bertemes followed with 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting in 33 minutes.

Denison was paced by the scoring column by Chandonnet's 12 points on 3-of-6 shooting from the field.  Jack Coulter added 11 points while Fenton chipped in seven points, 10 rebounds, and four blocked shots.  Matt Doyle also tallied nine points for Denison.

The Tigers shot 57 percent from the field and were 7-of-15 (.467) from beyond the arc.  Denison shot 40 percent from the field but connected on 12-of-33 of its 3-point tries.  Wittenberg held a 38-29 advantage on the glass as both teams tied with nine turnovers apiece.  Thanks to Seipel's big night, 44 of Wittenberg's 82 points came in the paint.

Denison falls to 6-13 overall and 3-10 in the North Coast Athletic Conference while Wittenberg improves to 15-5 and 9-4 in conference play.  The Big Red travels to Oberlin on Saturday (Feb. 2) for a 3 p.m. tipoff against the Yeomen.  They return to Livingston Gymnasium next Wednesday when they host Wooster at 8 p.m.
