COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado College's Jordan Meltzer and Mckenzee Gertz combined for 39 points as Denison's fourth-quarter comeback was held short in a 62-53 loss to the Tigers on Saturday night at Reid Arena in Colorado Springs.

While both sides each shot 20-64 from the field, the Tigers connected on 20 of their free-throw attempts compared to DU's seven, including an 8-for-11 mark in the fourth quarter for CC.

With 8:46 remaining in the game, a layup from Mia Thurber gave Colorado their largest lead of the night at 50-40. Following a 30-second timeout from DU head coach Sara Lee, the Big Red turned in a 10-0 scoring run over the next 4:44 behind threes from Alison Schafer and Kat Williams and a pair of layups from Lauren Longbrake.

After CC's Rosie Braley buried both of her free throws with 2:45 to play, the Tigers regained possession on a steal from Meltzer and Talia Cloud finished the trip with a jumper to put Colorado ahead, 54-50.

Trailing 57-50 with less than a minute remaining, Schafer kept Denison's hopes alive when she connected on a driving layup and turned it into a three-point-play with her first free throw of the night. Schafer's efforts trimmed the Big Red deficit to 57-53 with 55 seconds to play.

Despite the DU rally, the Tigers finished the game on a 5-0 scoring run, all of which came from the charity stripe on four Denison fouls. The loss drops the Big Red to 5-1 on the season while Colorado College improved to 2-3.

Meltzer led all scorers with 20 points on 5-of-9 from the field and 9-of-10 at the free-throw line. She also added seven rebounds. Gertz added 19 points and nine boards while Cloud chipped in 10 rebounds and four points off the bench.

Schafer and Shonta Lockett led Denison with 11 points each, while Lockett posted seven rebounds and Schafer followed with five assists and four boards. Longbrake added six points and four rebounds off the bench and Addie Buzas and Lily Morris each chipped in five points.

Denison will return to Livingston Gymnasium next Saturday, Nov. 30 when they host Wittenberg in their NCAC-opener starting at 2 p.m.
