DETROIT, Mich. -- The Mustangs (1-10, 1-4 WHAC) sputtered their way to 24 turnovers after coming out firing on all cylinders to take an early 14-point lead. The lead, the game's largest at 27-13 with nine left to play in the first half, would vanish soon thereafter as the Wolves raced back to take a 39-34 halftime lead.

The lead would hold firm with the Wolves (3-8, 1-4 WHAC) stealing one from the Mustangs at Ford Field House by a 76-70 final. Turnovers would be the Mustangs downfall on a night where they owned the edge in every statistical category but the all-important turnover battle. The Wolves only coughed up nine possessions while the Mustangs accounted for 24 miscues.

Dearborn native Manny Washington (Dearborn, Mich./Edsel Ford) had a huge game against his hometown university with dominating 27 points and 15 rebounds. The totals accounted for a career night for the promising freshman forward.

Two of Washington's 27 came via an alley-oop lob from fellow freshman Diante Taylor (Battle Creek, Mich./Central) who dropped in 10 for the Mustangs. Kevin Dunaj (Warren, Mich./Cousino) also added 10 points to round out the double-digit scorers for the Mustangs.

The Mustangs will look to get back on track Saturday when they visit WHAC counterpart, Aquinas College. Tipoff is scheduled for 3 p.m.
