GRANVILLE, Ohio – Highlighted by double-digit efforts from Alison Schafer and Zyah Beal, Denison women's basketball improved to 13-5 overall and 7-2 in the North Coast Athletic Conference following a 62-51 victory over the College of Wooster on Wednesday night at Livingston Gymnasium.

One game removed from joining Denison's 1,000-point club, Schafer took control of the Big Red offense in the first quarter as she scored DU's first eight points on a pair of threes and a jumper to keep Denison within one, 17-16, at the end of the first period.

Entering the second, Beal gave the Big Red a 19-17 advantage following her lone three of the game, sparking four-straight triples for DU, including two from Schafer and one off the hands of senior Addie Buzas. Lily Morris and Kat Williams also added to Denison's six three-pointers in the quarter, helping the Big Red outscore the Scots 21-11 in the frame and enter the break with a 37-28 lead.

In the opening minute of the second half, Wooster's Aubri McKoy buried a pair of free throws to trim the Scots deficit to 37-30 with 9:01 remaining in the third. Less than two minutes later, Lauren Longbrake responded with a successful jumper to put the Big Red back up by nine while Schafer and Beal followed suit to increase their lead to 43-30 at the 4:02 mark.

Morris and Williams continued to connect from the perimeter as another pair of threes helped DU carry a 51-37 lead into the fourth.

In the fourth, Wooster opened the period with an 8-1 scoring run behind a layup from Maria Janasko and back-to-back threes from Kylie Orr as the Scots cut DU's lead back to seven, 52-45, with 7:24 to play in the game.

Over the next three minutes of action, Denison scored the game's next six points thanks to jumpers from Schafer, Beal, and Shonta Lockett to put the Big Red in front, 58-45. DU ended the game on a 10-6 scoring run as they put the Scots away and earned their seventh win in conference play. Wooster moved to 5-12 on the season and 1-7 in the NCAC.

Schafer led all scorers with 18 points on 7-of-15 from the field and 4-of-9 from the perimeter. She also added five rebounds. Beal followed with 10 points and three assists while Lauren Hofer chipped in nine points and Williams recorded six points and three steals.

Janasko led the Scots with 16 points and nine rebounds. Aubri McKoy and A'Janay Nicholson each added nine points while Akwia Tilton tallied eight points and six boards.

Denison will hit the road this Saturday, January 25 when they travel to Springfield, Ohio for a 2 p.m. tip-off with Wittenberg University.
