DELAWARE, Ohio— The trio of Megan Kuether, Elea Karras and Taylor Dickson combined for 61 points as the Battling Bishops held off Denison, 72-65 from Branch Rickey Arena.

Denison trailed by eight at the half due in large to 13 turnovers that OWU turned into 18 points.

In the second half, Denison took care of the basketball, but Ohio Wesleyan's shots continued to fall.  A 3-pointer by Alison Schafer and a bucket by Jordan Holmes cut the deficit to four with seven minutes left in the third quarter.  The Battling Bishops responded with a 14-2 run fueled by three-straight 3-pointers by Karras.  Another trey, this time by Claire Sterling as time expired in the third, sent DU into the final quarter trailing 62-47.

In the fourth, Denison outscored Ohio Wesleyan 18-10 thanks to a pair of 3-pointers from Schafer, one from Gaby Mehringer and another from Erica Holmes.  Schafer's final triple cut the deficit to seven but that is as close as DU could get.

Jordan Holmes led Denison with 17 points, 15 rebounds and four blocked shots.  She was 7-of-10 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line.  Schafer, Erica Holmes and Mehringer all finished with nine points apiece while Emily Krumpe chipped in eight.

Ohio Wesleyan was led by Kuether with 25 on 10-of-18 shooting.  Karras scored 20 while going 6-of-8 from downtown.  Dickson rounded out the leaders with 16 points and five assists.

Denison shot 45 percent (26-of-58) and outrebounded OWU, 35-25. 

Ohio Wesleyan hit 29-of-54 (.537) and were 10-of-17 from 3-point range.

The Battling Bishops improve to 8-12 and 5-6 in the North Coast Athletic Conference while Denison drops to 10-11 and 7-5 in league play.

The Big Red returns to Livingston Gymnasium on Saturday when they host The College of Wooster at 1 p.m.
