PALOS HEIGHTS, Ill. - Freshman Jeorgia Jones (FR/Detroit MI) had a strong night for the University of Michigan-Dearborn women's basketball team, but the Wolverines fell short in a nonconference matchup against Trinity Christian College Thursday in Palo Heights, Ill.
The Trolls pulled away from the Wolverines in the third quarter and held on for the 67-50 victory, dropping UM-Dearborn to 1-1 this season.

Emily Heinrich (SO/South Lyon, MI) scored 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting, while Megan Swick (JR/Grosse Ile, Mich.) added nine points, four rebounds and five steals off the bench. Natalie Spala (SO/Livonia, MI) chipped in with eight points and six rebounds. The Wolverines shot 19-of-60 from the field, 3-of-27 from deep and 9-of-20 from the free-throw line. The Trolls won the rebounding battle 43-40.
TCC got a team-high 3 points from both Breanna Toppen and Celina Wanta, while Lauren Stokes added 11 points.
