    Chicago, Ill. - Coming off a win over Butler, the UIC women's basketball team (11-8, 3-4) now heads around Lake Michigan for a match-up with Horizon League foe, Detroit (7-9, 3-3).

    Junior forward Jaysie Chambers, who had a career afternoon for UIC against the youthful Bulldogs on Saturday as she poured in a career-high 36 points and pulled down 10 boards, good for her third double-double of the season.

    The 36-point effort ties for the fourth-most points in a UIC game, while her 15 field-goals tied the all-time best with a trio of former players in a single game.

    When the Flames enter Calihan Hall in Detroit tonight, they will be in for a big-city brawl, as UDM is undefeated in league play this season (3-0) on their home turf. At 3-3 in the Horizon League, the Titans are in danger of letting UIC pass them up in the league race. Tip-off is set for 6:00 PM (CST).

    Paced by the trio of Michelle James (14.0 ppg), Randee Henry (12.9 ppg) and Molly Peterman (12.6 ppg), the Titans were the pre-season pick to finish third in the league behind Wisconsin-Green Bay and Wisconsin-Milwaukee).

    Detroit is coming off a 102-71 drubbing at the hands of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, so look for the Titans to have a chip on their shoulder looking to rebound from that disappointing loss.

    Along with Chambers, point guard LeKesha Williams has done a fine job of running of ball club of late for the Flames. Williams is the only UIC player to start each of the Flames' 19 games thus far and scores at a clip of 10.2 points per game. She has also recorded a team-high 40 steals.

    Long-range specialist Zsuzsa Tarnai has connected on the 36 percent of her field goal attempts from behind the arc, good for nearly nine points per contest.
