IPFW women fall to Detroit

The IPFW women's basketball team couldn't keep a fast start going as it fell 88-58 at home to Detroit on Tuesday.

The Mastodons opened a 20-11 in the first 6 1/2 minutes, but after the Titans tied the game at 20, they outscored IPFW 23-8 in the final eight minutes of the first half to take control of the game with a 43-28 halftime lead.

IPFW, which fell to the top defensive team in Michigan State on Sunday, could not contain the country's leading scorer in Detroit's Shareta Brown.

The sophomore forward scored a game-high 34 points and had nine rebounds for the Titans (6-4)..

Amanda Hyde led IPFW (3-8) with 19 points, and Haley Seibert added 15.
