Marian's Mulroy has more hoops to hit for UDM

In high school at Birmingham Marian, Brigid Mulroy played for a former University of Detroit Mercy player and Hall of Famer in Mary Cicerone. Her grandfather, John, is also in the UDM athletic Hall of Fame as an administrator, while her father, also named John, was once the UDM men's basketball interim coach.

But Mulroy now has earned an honor that none of those influences can boast: The UDM senior became the first player for the Titans — men's or women's — to earn an invitation to the national 3-point contest.

The 22nd Annual State Farm Slam Dunk and Three Point Championships are scheduled for April 1, as part of the NCAA men's basketball Final Four weekend. The contest will be broadcast on a tape-delay basis at 9 p.m. on ESPN.

A walk-on for her first two years with the Titans, Mulroy started every game the past two seasons, and ranks sixth on UDM's all-time list for 3-pointers made with 160. She was ranked in the top five in 3-point percentage for every week but one this season.

The Titans' season ended with a loss to Butler in the Horizon League tournament semifinals.
