Central Michigan 73, Texas 65

Well, CMU didn't win the Maggie Dixon Surf 'n Slam Classic thanks to their loss to host team San Diego, but they did win the consolation by knocking off a ranked (soon to be unranked) Texas Longhorns team. Pretty darn good consolation, I'd say. UT jumped out to an eight-point lead early, but CMU took the lead for good with 7:00 left in the first half thanks to some huge bench play. CMU was able to create some turnovers by virtue of 11 steals, winning the turnover battle 23-12, and slowed down the game by getting to the line and sinking 21-of-26 free throws.

Niki DiGuilio led the Chips with 21 points on 5-for-8 3-point shooting and Jessica Schroll added 14 points.

CMU is no secret in the MAC; they've been known for high-tempo, high-scoring games and they did knock off ranked Purdue and snuck out a win at Ole Miss last season. They're at 6-6 in this nonconference season, which has had ups and downs, but this is a strong "up" for them. One more shot at a Pink Line Upset will come on Wednesday when CMU faces Marquette.
