Central Michigan 90, Prairie View A&M 66
December 18, 2013
- Wednesday's crowd of 3,793 marked the eighth largest crowd to watch a CMU women's basketball game in program history. The contest marked CMU's annual 'Hoops for Hunger' game in which local students from mid-Michigan schools are in attendance. 

- Central Michigan had a season-high 14 steals in the victory and are now 2-1 this season when recording 10-plus steals. 

- Senior Niki DiGuilio led the Chippewas in scoring for the fourth time this season with a game-high 18 points. She finished 4-for-5 from behind the three-point line and a perfect 6-for-6 from the charity striple in posting her eighth double-digit scoring effort of the season. 

- DiGuilio moved closer to becoming the 23rd player in program history to tally 1,000 career points as she is now just 27 points shy of the feat. The sharp shooter is also now just eight three-point field goals shy of becoming the program's all-time leader in made three-point field goals. 

- CMU improved to 4-0 when leading at the half, 3-0 when leading in rebounds and 3-0 when shooting 70-plus percent from the free throw line. 

- Five players scored in double figures for CMU, improving the Chippewas' record to 4-1 this season when four or more players score at least 10 points. 

- Junior Crystal Bradford posted her second-straight game with at least 15 rebounds, recording her fourth double double of the season, and 28th of her career, with 16 poitns and 16 rebounds. 

- Bradford matched her career best with seven steals Thursday and is now just 19 shy of cracking CMU's top 10 list all time. 

- CMU had its streak of games with at least 10-plus three-point field goals snapped at three, finishing just 9-for-25 from behind the arc. 

- Juniors Jas'Mine Bracey posted her fourth double-figure scoring game of the season with 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting. 

- Junior Jessica Green posted her fifth double-digit scoring game of the season, and 42nd of her career, with 11 points. She also dished out a game-high six assists. 

- Sophomore guard Da'Jourie Turner scored in double digits for the first time since the season opening, hitting 10-of-13 attempts from the free throw line en route to 12 points in 14 minutes. 

- CMU finishes the calendar year with three-straight road games beginning Sunday when it takes on No. 4 Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind. The Chippewas narrowly lost to the Irish last season inside McGuirk Arena, falling by just nine to the No. 5 team in the country, 72-63.
