DETROIT, Mich. -- Ninth year head coach Antonio Hitchcock started the 2012-13 campaign with an 82-40 exhibition victory over the Crusaders of Great Lakes Christian College. The season-exhibition victory came at home in front of a crowd of over 150-plus.

With an influx of new talent on the roster to compliment last year's leading scorer Keara Marks (Detroit, Mich./Renaissance), the Mustangs found their balance, shot out to an early lead and never looked back after a 45-20 halftime tally.

Marks would pick up where she left off last season by flirting with an opening night triple-double of 29 points, 17 rebounds and seven assists. Marks also added five steals to complete a well-rounded evening to tip-off her senior season.

With her game-high 29 points coming by way of exhibition, Marks still sits 43 points away from becoming the Mustangs' second 1,000-point scorer in program history.

As for the new talent, 6'3 starting center Shakia Logan (Detroit, Mich./AIB) produced an impressive 22 points and 17 rebounds in her debut. Logan's efficient night four blocks and two steals in a night where the center also shot 10-for-16 from the floor.

Fellow newcomer, Elisha Major (Flint, Mich./Flushing), also had a successful debut after pouring in 16 points.

The Mustangs being their regular season slate Monday (Nov. 5) at nearby University of Detroit-Mercy. The Mustangs and Titans will meet at 7:00pm inside Detroit's Calihan Hall.

The two schools will join forces Sunday (Nov. 4) to clean up the "McNichols Mile" that stretches between the schools. Members from each institution's women's basketball team will spearhead the cleanup movement that will also engage the campus and local extended community.
