    Indianapolis, Ind. - University of Illinois at Chicago sophomore guard LaShonda Grant tallied a career-high 31 points on 9-for-10 shooting, including five three-pointers, as the visiting Flames picked up the 72-67 Horizon League victory over Butler at Hinkle Fieldhouse on Saturday afternoon.

    Grant, who posted 21 of her points in the first half, was solid down the stretch of the contest, as the Chicago, Ill., scored seven of the Flames' final eight points, including 5-for-6 from the charity stripe, to keep the host Bulldogs at bay.

    UIC senior forward Dejeanette Flournoy garnered her fourth-straight, double-double with 15 points and a game-high 11 rebounds.

    With the victory, UIC improves to 13-13 overall and 10-5 in Horizon League play, while the host Bulldogs fall to 12-13 on the season and 6-8 in conference action.

    Ellen Hamilton paced the Butler scoring attack with 22 points, including four three-pointers, followed by Jackie Closser (14 points, 4 treys), Cortney Urquhart (12 points) and Maria Marchesano (11 points).

    The Flames will be back in action next Saturday, as they will welcome Horizon League-regular season champion, UW-Green Bay, at 3:00 p.m. in the UIC Pavilion.
