Detroit, Mich. - Based on the first 10-minutes of Thursday's Horizon League women's basketball contest between the University of Illinois at Chicago and Detroit, it seemed as if the Flames were a lock, jumping out to a 14-2 lead over the Titans.

Sophomore guard Katie Solner paced Detroit with 17 points, followed by Caitie Goddard (15 points), Sara Crum (12 points) and Nicole Anaejionu (10 points).
