GRANVILLE, Ohio – Denison women's basketball squandered their fourth-quarter lead in the final minutes as Oberlin College rallied to defeat the Big Red, 62-53, on Saturday afternoon at Livingston Gymnasium.

Despite forcing the Yeowomen to commit eight first-half turnovers and enter the final frame with a 45-44 lead, Denison was outscored 18-8 in the last 10 minutes of play while shooting only 4-of-19 from the field.

Following back-to-back baskets from Oberlin's Alex Stipano and DU's Alison Schafer to tie the game at 47-47 with 9:04 remaining, the Yeowomen answered with consecutive jumpers from Olivia Canning and Abby Andrews to take the lead, 51-47, at the 6:41 mark.

The Big Red countered on the next possession when sophomore Aliyah Hunter missed a jumper, but Shonta Lockett gathered the board and connected at the rim to trail by only two, 51-49. Then with 4:36 to play, sophomore Lauren Hofer buried a jumper to tie the game back up at 51-51.

OC broke the tie when Stipano drained a triple to go on top, 54-51, with just over three minutes to play. Oberlin added to their lead after Schafer missed a layup for the Big Red and Canning turned it into a bucket on the other end to give the Yeowomen a five-point lead, 56-51, at the 2:18 mark.

Over the next 2:11 of play, Denison was held to 0-for-5 from the field as Oberlin finished the game on a 6-2 scoring run and connected on four of their final six free throw attempts to improve to 8-2 in the North Coast Athletic Conference. The loss drops DU to 3-6 in the conference.

Oberlin's Stipano led the game with 17 points on 4-of-10 shooting from behind the arc, while Canning added 16 points off the bench. The Yeowomen finished with four players in double figures as Tyler Parlor recorded 10 tallies and Andrews finished with 12 points and nine rebounds.

Denison was paced by Hofer's 13 points and six boards and senior Brittany Atkinson helped with 10 bench points. Lauren Longbrake led the team with eight rebounds and chipped in five points.

The Big Red will return to action on Wednesday, Jan. 24 when they host the Ladies of Kenyon College for a 7:30 p.m. tip-off.
