DETROIT (AP) — Freshman Antoine Davis, second nationally in scoring, had 29 points despite a poor shooting night and Detroit Mercy defeated Cleveland State 78-64 on Thursday night.
Davis, the national leader in 3-pointers and 3-pointers per game, was only 2 of 12 from distance and made 6 of 22 overall. His point total got a big boost from the 15 free throws he made in 17 attempts.
Cleveland State led 20-19 midway through the first half before Detroit Mercy closed with a 19-8 run for a 38-28 halftime lead. The Titans went up by 19 early in the second half and Cleveland State did not threaten.
