For the second time this year, Michigan used the starting lineup of Madison Ristovski, Shannon Smith, Siera Thompson, Nicole Elmblad and Cyesha Goree. It is the same lineup used on opening day (Nov. 8) against Bowling Green.
Sophomore Madison Ristovski was facing her younger sister, Haleigh, who is a freshman at Detroit. The two played together for three years at Liggett High School, leading their team to consecutive Class C runner-up finishes (2011, 2012).
The all-time series between Detroit and Michigan is now tied at 12-12.
Today's contest marked Michigan's first true road game of the season.
Fifth-year senior Kendra Seto scored a season-high six points. She had appeared in Michigan's previous three games but had yet to score.
Sophomore Rebecca Lyttle made the first appearance of her career, entering the game with 3:46 remaining in the first half. She played 10 minutes and grabbed four rebounds.
In uniform for the first time this season was junior/sophomore Halle Wangler, who was previously sitting out the season due to NCAA transfer rules. She appealed to the NCAA, and it was granted on Friday afternoon, making her immediately eligible to play. She went 0-for-2 from the free throw line.
Michigan is now 2-0 in blue uniforms.
U-M hit a season-high 10 three-pointers.
Madison Ristovski scored a career-best 14 points, establishing a new career high for the second straight game. She scored 12 against Xavier on Wednesday (Nov. 13).
Nicole Elmblad grabbed 11 rebounds, her third straight game with at least 10.
