 BIG RED SEASON BEGINS WITH CHALLENGES 
 
Feb. 28, 2015
 
Following a record 2014 season that included 5 members of the Big Red earning All America honors and the graduation of several key players, one would expect this year to begin with a few bumps.  Sure enough, the Big Red is still finding its way after losing to W&L 11-5 and Roanoke 13-11.  The most notable issues at this point are ball possessions and quality offensive possessions:  opponents have picked up more ground balls and Denison's overall shooting (percentage and shots on goal) is below par.  Importantly, after losing 2 starters who were responsible for 145 points last year, the attack is still gelling.  This is putting pressure on the defense, where opponents are scoring 12 goals/game on 5with a 29% shooting percentage.  Game recaps.
