Dearborn, MI - The men's basketball team started out strong against the visiting Grace Bible Tigers, but a strong finish to the first half by the Tigers proved to be just what they needed. Early on the Wolverines were making baskets and coming up with defensive stops en route to a 21-9 lead capped by freshman Jason Penn's steal and then a two-point basket by sophomore Brandon Cole with just over 10 minutes remaining in the first half. Grace Bible would then start making shots as they ended the half on a 22-13 run to pull within three points at 34-31.
