Kirk’s 3-pointer saves Ohio in victory over Detroit Mercy
Both teams missed two free throws each before Harrison Curry’s 3-point try missed at the buzzer.
A 12-0 run capped by a 3-pointer by Ben Vander Plas gave Ohio a 19-point lead with 12:21 to go. But Detroit responded with a 24-6 run led by eight points from Curry and seven by Antoine Davis while Ohio was going 2 of 11 as the Titans closed to within a point with three minutes left.
Davis, a freshman who came in as the nation’s second-leading scorer at 27.4 per game and the 3-point leader at 5.4 per outing, finished with 19 points, making 3 of 11 from the arc for the Titans (3-8), who have lost five straight. Curry scored 12 points.
