DETROIT — The Detroit women’s basketball team is back in action at home this week as the Titans open a three-game homestand with Milwaukee on Thursday. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m., on Dick Vitale Court in Calihan Hall.

The three-game homestand will also include No. 14/12 Green Bay on Saturday at 2 p.m., and Wright State next Saturday at 3 p.m.

The homestand will also include some great promotional events with the first 150 fans to come out and see the game against the nationally-ranked Phoenix will get free pizza and a chance to meet and listen to the voice of the Pistons George Blaha do introductions and will sign autographs at halftime. All fans will also get an opportunity to meet the team with an autograph session after the game.

Next Saturday’s game against the Raiders will be a Titan doubleheader on Homecoming with the men hosting WSU at Noon on FOX Sports Detroit, with the women to follow at 3 p.m.

The Titans are off to a fast start in Horizon League play and bring a 3-1 record in the conference and 7-9 overall mark. Freshman Shareta Brown, the Co-Horizon League Player of the Week, helped the Titans split a pair of games in Chicago last week, posting 31 points and 11 rebounds in a win at Loyola.

Milwaukee has lost three in a row and six of its last eight and enters the game at 4-9, 0-3 in the Horizon League. The Panthers are playing their first road game since Dec. 11 – a span of five games – but that comes after opening the season with six of their first eight on the road.

After dropping seven in a row against the Panthers, UDM has won four of the last five meetings, but Milwaukee still leads the overall series, 22-18. Last year, the teams split the season series with UDM taking a 90-76 victory on the road, while Milwaukee won 65-55 in Detroit.

The Titans have also won two of the last three meetings in Detroit as the teams have split 18 career match-ups in the Motor City.
