Detroit Mercy

Fifth Third Arena

The Bearcats will take on University of Detroit Mercy (0-1, KenPom #308) in the first game of the Allegiant Air-sponsored MTE that will take place at Fifth Third Arena on Friday evening.

The Titans are led by renowned 6th-year head coach Mike Davis and lost their first game of the new season at Toledo on Monday, 94-60.

Detroit Mercy sports an overhauled roster after losing the NCAA's second all-time leading scorer, Antoine Davis, to graduation. Davis, who was held to 17 points on 6-20 shooting in last season's 72-54 loss to UC finished his illustrious career with 3,664 points - just 3 points shy of Pete Maravich in the top spot.

This year's Titans squad is led by 4th-year 6'4 guard Jayden Stone who missed the UC game last season in addition to the whole second half of the season due to being ruled academically ineligible. Stone averaged 13.9 ppg and 5.3 rpg on 51.9% 3-point shooting over 13 games.

Of the four other new transfers who comprised Detroit Mercy's starting lineup against Toledo, the most notable name is 2nd-year UMKC transfer Abdullah Olajuwon, the son of NBA Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon.

The Titans were picked to finish 9th out of 11 teams in the Horizon League this season.
