OBERLIN, Ohio--  Oberlin's Jordan Armstrong split a pair of free throws with 12 seconds left to give Oberlin a one-point lead.  Denison had two good looks at the other end to win, with the last coming just short as the final buzzer sounded, allowing Oberlin to come away with a 61-60 victory.

Trailing 46-37 with 11:31 to play, Denison's Matt Gerics drilled a 3-pointer from the corner to get the Big Red to within six.  That trey started Denison on an 11-0 run over the next four minutes that was capped off by a Jack Coulter corner 3-pointer. Suddenly the Big Red were leading 48-46 with just under eight minutes to play.

Oberlin responded with a 3-pointer by Joshua Friedkin and three points from the charity stripe.  That allowed the Yeomen to pull ahead by four with six minutes to play.

Friedkin continued to assert himself on the offensive end as his step-back triple with 4:41 to play gave his squad a 55-53 lead.  After a Jake Livingston free throw and a big 3-pointer from Matt Redmond, the Big Red were clinging to a 57-55 lead with 3:43 to go.

Oberlin's Eli Silverman-Lloyd tied it and Friedkin buried his fifth 3-pointer of the game to put the Yeomen on top by three with less than two minutes on the clock.

After consecutive turnovers Denison had possession, trailing by three with under a minute to play.  That's when the Oberlin defense sagged giving DU marksman Coulter an open look from three that he buried, tying the game once again at 60-60.

At the other end, Armstrong was fouled going to the hoop by Conor Fenton and he split the pair.  Denison's first attempt to win came on a 3-point try by Doyle with five seconds on the clock.  Fenton got the offensive rebound and found Redmond near the baseline but his six-footer drew front rim as the clock hit zero.

Doyle led Denison in scoring with 13 points on 6-of-13 shooting in 22 minutes.  Livingston finished with 11 points and five rebounds while Coulter and Redmond both totaled nine points.

Friedkin led all scorers with 21 points and Andre Campbell finished with 18 for Oberlin (11-10, 7-7 NCAC).

Denison shot 43 percent from the field and was 7-of-20 (.350) from long range.  Oberlin shot 41 percent and was 6-of-16 from 3-point land.  Rebounding was a push, with both teams snaring 34 but Oberlin's 10 offensive rebounds equated to 12, second-chance points.

The Big Red (6-14, 3-11 NCAC) returns to Livingston Gymnasium on Wednesday when they host Wooster at 8 p.m.
