GRANVILLE, Ohio -- Denison shot a season-high 57 percent from the field and 42 percent from three-point range en route to a 65-42 victory over Wittenberg on Saturday afternoon at Livingston Gymnasium.

Down by one early in the opening quarter, the Big Red orchestrated an 11-0 run over the final 6:17 of the period to build a 16-6 lead at the end of one. DU maintained its double-digit lead for the entire second period, building an 18-point advantage on a Jordan Holmes layup with two minutes to play in the half. The Tigers' Liz Tolliver knocked down a pair of free throws to shrink the deficit to 16. However, a jumper by freshman Lauren Hofer rebuilt the 18-point lead as the home team took a 34-16 lead into the break.

Senior Erica Holmes gave Denison its first 20-point lead of the game with a layup one minute and 49 seconds into the second half. The Big Red held that 20-point advantage for the majority of the final two periods. The Tigers were able to pull within 14 midway through the fourth quarter, but a 13-2 surge over the final 3:45 propelled the Big Red to a 23-point victory.

Denison went 27-for-47 from the field which included a 5-for-12 performance from three. They also connected on six of their seven attempts from the foul line. The Big Red defense held Wittenberg to a 23 percent (12-for-52) conversion rate from the field. DU held a 36-25 edge on the glass, while also outscoring the Tigers in the paint 30-10.

Senior Emily Krumpe led all scorers with 16 points, while Jordan Holmes finished with 10 points and 18 rebounds. Holmes' 18-rebound performance moves her career total to 1,578 which moves her into sixth place on the career rebounds list that spans all three divisions of the NCAA. Gabrielle Nottage dished out a career-high 12 assists to go along with nine points. Nottage's 12 helpers are tied for the third-most in a single game in program history. The senior point guard also went a perfect 6-for-6 at the charity stripe.

Amanda Raber and Sydney Mayle paced the Wittenberg scoring with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Michelle Brunswick handed out four assists and grabbed six rebounds.

With the win, Denison improves to 10-10 overall and 7-4 in the North Coast Athletic Conference, while the Tigers fall to 8-12 and 4-7 in the conference. The Big Red returns to action on Wednesday (Feb. 1) when they travel to Delaware, Ohio for a 6 p.m. contest against the Battling Bishops.
