Coming off a 67-41 loss to Detroit Delta Prep on Dec. 17, Detroit Cody coach James Sutton knew his team had to bounce back.
Cody did that Monday night, with a 51-43 win over Detroit University Prep Science and Math.
"It was a great win," Sutton said. "It was a great moment for our young team."
Dionte Daniels, the only senior for Cody (2-2), led the way with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Malik Frederick added 14 points, and Rothus Stewart had 10 rebounds.
Daniels orchestrated the turnaround for Cody, which trailed at halftime.
"He's extremely aggressive on the glass," Sutton said. "He played with a lot of energy tonight."
He said Frederick was also a catalyst in the second half, with three 3-pointers.
Cody plays Detroit Davis Aerospace Academy on Wednesday.
Science and Math is 3-2.
