 The American ice dancing duo was also the top performer in the short dance portion of the competition Saturday, scoring 75.98 for another 10 team points. Davis and White's biggest rivals, 2010 Olympic gold medalists Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir from Canada, placed second in both the short dance (72.98) and free dance (107.56).

Davis and White, who are six-time reigning U.S. champions, will go for another medal next week when the ice dancing individual competition is held Sunday and Monday. They were silver medalists at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.

Also competing for the U.S. ice dancing team will be Michigan graduate Evan Bates, a two-time Olympian who will skate with partner Madison Chock, as well as siblings Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani, who are current U-M students.
