Detroit hands UWGB women first loss of season



GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Shareta Brown scored 24 points and Senee Shearer added 23 to help Detroit stun No. 9 Wisconsin-Green Bay 70-58 on Thursday night, handing the Phoenix their first loss of the season.

   The Titans (13-11, 9-3 Horizon League) snapped the Phoenix's (20-1, 10-1) 40-game regular season winning streak and ended their bid for a second straight perfect season in the Horizon.

   Top-ranked Baylor is the only unbeaten team left in Division I women's basketball.

   Green Bay trailed for most of the game after falling behind by 14 early. The Phoenix took a brief 50-47 lead on Adrian Ritchie 3-pointer with just over eight minutes left but then scored just two points over the next seven minutes.

   Detroit made its final 16 free throws to seal the win.
