GRANVILLE, Ohio -- A third-quarter offensive surge helped propel Denison to a 63-52 victory over Allegheny College on Saturday afternoon at Livingston Gym. The win pushed DU's current winning streak to six games, while also avenging a loss to the Gators in last year's North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament semifinal.

Trailing 14-12 after the first period, freshman Alison Schafer opened the second quarter with a three off an assist from senior Gabrielle Nottage to regain the lead of the Big Red. Schafer's triple sparked an 11-0 run that gave Denison a nine-point lead. The Gators answered with a surge of their own, scoring 11 of the final 12 points over the final five minutes of the half. That run capped off by an Emily Smith three that sent Allegheny into the locker room with a 25-24 edge.

Looking to rebound after the half-ending burst by the visiting squad, the Big Red scored the first seven points of the period, with the final five coming from senior post Emily Krumpe. The seven-point surge turned into a 16-4 run that spanned seven and a half minutes. A 20-8 scoring advantage in the third stanza allowed Denison to take a 44-33 lead into the fourth.

The Gators pulled to within three in the opening stages of the final quarter before an 11-2 burst put the home team ahead by 12 points with five minutes to play. Allegheny was able to close the gap to seven with two minutes left in regulation, but a jumper by Nottage and a pair of free throws by Schafer secured the 11-point victory.

Krumpe and Jordan Holmes each registered a double-double for the Big Red. Krumpe finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds, while Holmes scored 13 points to go along with 16 boards, five blocks and two steals. With her 16 rebounds, Holmes eclipsed the 1,500 career rebound milestone. Nottage led all scorers with a career-high 19 points in 28 minutes off the bench, while Schafer dished out a game-high seven assists. Senior Gaby Mehringer also had four assists to go along with seven points and five rebounds.

Delaney Arbore led Allegheny with 13 points followed by Olivia Barkley with 11. Smith finished with 10 points off the bench. Zoe Soilis dished out three assists, while Angela Martelli had four steals and two blocks.

Denison converted 39 percent (22-for-57) from the field, while also going 17-for-23 (74 percent) from the foul line. The Gators shot 30 percent (20-for-66) from the floor. The Big Red held a 50-33 advantage on the glass.

With the win, DU improves to 8-7 overall and 5-1 in the NCAC while the loss drops Allegheny to 2-11 and 0-5 in league play. Denison returns to action on Wednesday when they host nationally-ranked DePauw. Tip-off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
