DETROIT (AP) Freshman Antoine Davis matched a program record with 10 3-pointers and finished with 48 points to lead Detroit Mercy to 79-58 victory over Wright State on Thursday night.
Archie Tullos scored a Detroit Mercy record 49 points against Bradley on Feb. 22, 1988. Davis had a chance to surpass Tullos with 11 seconds remaining, but he dribbled the clock out to end the game. Davis finished 15-of-24 shooting from the floor including 10 of 15 from long range and made 8 of 9 free throws.
Derrien King added 11 points for Detroit Mercy (6-9, 3-0 Horizon League), which has won three straight games since snapping a six-game losing streak.
The Titans took the lead for good about two minutes into the game. Wright State pulled to 34-30 early in the second half but didn't get closer.
