Defense leads DU to a win over Kenyon

Defense leads DU to a win over Kenyon

Denison held Kenyon scoreless for the first 16 minutes of the game.  That defensive effort carried over throughout as the Big Red handed Kenyon a 39-25 loss in Gambier.  The victory clinches at least a share of the 2016 North Coast Athletic Conference Championship and the No. 1 seed in the NCAC Tournament.

It wasn't always pretty from an offensive viewpoint, but DU flexed its defensive muscles, holding the Ladies to 21 percent shooting (10-of-48).  Denison held a 10-0 lead at the end of the first quarter and despite scoring only seven points in the second quarter, the Big Red led by 13 at the half.

Denison junior post, Jordan Holmes entered the night needing only six points to become the 12th player in program history to score 1,000 career points.  Holmes made history in the third quarter on a basket down low off a pass from Erica Holmes.  Jordan Holmes accounted for all eight of DU's points in the third quarter as Denison led 25-16 entering the fourth.

A Bailey Dominquez basket early in the fourth trimmed the Big Red's lead to nine, but that sparked a 10-0 run by Denison that put the game out of reach.

Kenyon's 25 points marks the fewest amount scored by a Denison opponent since Hilbert managed only 15 points against the Big Red in the 1999-2000 season.

Jordan Holmes finished with 12 points, 18 rebounds and five blocks to lead Denison.  Emily Krumpe reached double-digits with 12 points while Kellie Arter, Taylor Lindquist and Akilah Fletcher all finished four points apiece.  DU shot 38 percent from the field (17-of-45) and were 1-of-5 from beyond the arc.

Kenyon leading scorers were Griffin Tullis and Jessica Gerber who each finished with five points apiece.

Winners of 13-straight, Denison will look to clinch the outright NCAC Championship on Wednesday, February 17 when the Big Red hosts Hiram at 6 p.m.  Tonight's victory also marks the eighth 20-win season in Big Red women's basketball history.
