November 09, 2021

Detroit Mercy basketball returns this week as the Titans men’s and women’s teams open the 2021-22 season.

The men’s basketball team begins the season Nov. 10 at Wyoming, the first of nine consecutive road games. The road trip includes anticipated matchups with Mississippi State of the Southeastern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference powerhouse Louisville. The team’s first game at Calihan Hall is Saturday, Dec. 11 against Western Michigan.

The men’s basketball team returns six letter winners and two starters from last year's squad that went 12-10 overall and 10-6 in conference play. The winning record was the first by the team since the 2015-16 season, while the 10 conference wins were the most since 2012-13. They were picked to finish fifth in the Horizon League preseason coaches poll, recording two first-place votes.

Senior Antoine Davis was named the Horizon League Preseason Player of the Year for the second time in his career. He also was named a preseason nominee for the Lou Henson National Player of the Year Award and is within reach of several Titan basketball records this season.

The Detroit Mercy women’s basketball team kicks off the season Nov. 9 with a trip to fellow Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities member Loyola University Chicago. The team’s home opener is Thursday, Nov. 18 against Robert Morris.

Led by interim head coach LaTanya Collins, the women’s basketball team consists of 14 newcomers, with nine student-athletes from the United States, four from Spain and one from Canada.
