    Reserve Mitidiero steps up to lead DePaul over Detroit

    DETROIT (AP) -- Missy Mitidiero scored 13 points in a reserve role to help DePaul (No. 18 ESPN/USA Today; No. 17 AP) win its eighth straight game, 81-57 over Detroit on Friday night.

    Erin Cattell hit a 3-pointer midway through the first half to spark a 15-3 run that gave the Blue Demons (8-1) the lead for good. DePaul led 34-25 at the half and put the game away with a 12-4 spurt to open the second half.

    Mitidiero had 10 points during the second-half streak. Erin Carney and Jenna Rubino each finished with 12 points and Caprice Smith and Samantha Quigley scored 10 apiece.

    Joyce Massey had 22 points for the Titans (1-8), who have lost seven straight. Sandi Brown added 12 for Detroit.

    Rubino became the 20th DePaul player to score 1,000 career points when she made a pair of free throws late in the game.
