DU suffers first NCAC loss at Witt

Taylor Lindquist

A 28-7 run in the second half helped propel the Wittenberg Tigers to a 50-40 North Coast Athletic Conference victory over Denison on Saturday afternoon at Pam Evans Smith Arena in Springfield, Ohio. The loss snapped the Big Red's five-game winning streak.

The Big Red led the entire first half, building a lead as large as nine in the early stages of the second quarter. Senior Taylor Lindquist turned a four-point edge  into a nine-point advantage with a 3-pointer and a layup on back-to-back Denison possessions. Wittenberg pulled to within five late in the half, but a jumper by Emily Krumpe gave DU a 22-15 lead at the break.

Off an Erica Holmes steal, senior Kellie Arter drained a triple to open the third-quarter scoring. Arter's three gave Denison its biggest lead of the afternoon at 25-15. The Tigers answered by orchestrating a 28-7 run that spanned almost a quarter and a half. The offensive outburst turned that double-digit deficit into an 11-point lead with 5:28 left in regulation. Teddi Tankersley gave Wittenberg their first lead of the game with a 3-pointer at the 1:38 mark of the third period.

The Big Red engineered an 8-2 spurt over the next four minutes that allowed them to pull within five. However, a layup by Haley Dannemiller and a 3-for-4 showing at the foul line by Riley McDonald secured the 10-point win.

Krumpe led the Denison offense with 10 points, while Jordan Holmes pulled down 15 rebounds. Arter had nine points thanks to three 3-pointers, while Krumpe, Akilah Fletcher and Niyah Gonzalez each had five boards.

Becca Ziska posted a game-best 14 points, while Taylore Bundy and Dannemiller had eight rebounds apiece. McDonald dished out five assists and grabbed six boards to go along with seven points.

The Big Red falls to 7-3 overall and 2-1 in the NCAC, while the Tigers move to 3-4 and 2-0 in conference play. Denison will take a two and a half week break from competition for the holidays before returning to action on Dec. 28 at the Smokey Ballenger Classic hosted by Otterbein University. DU will open the tournament against North Central on Dec. 28 at 5:30 p.m. before facing off against the host Cardinals on Dec. 29 at 5 p.m.
