Play of the Game: There wasn't just a single play that stood out, but rather a stretch of plays. UWM came out on a mission in the second half, going out on a 16-1 run where it held CSU without a field goal on its first 13 tries. That built the lead to over 20 and it was over.
Key Stats: After scoring 88 points in the exhibition win over Hillsdale, the Panthers did not stop there, putting up 82 points in the season opener. The win was the first in a season-opener since 2009-10 and the highest scoring opener since 2007.
News and Notes: Emily Decorah returned from that knee injury last season and tied her career-high with 10 points while also setting a personal-best with seven rebounds. Macie Dorow made an impression, setting career-highs with seven points and three assists as well.
Up Next: UWM closes out the weekend with a big game Sunday, taking on Wisconsin in the Kohl Center. Tip off is set for 6 p.m.
