His 11 3-pointers during the contest vaulted Davis past Oakland's Travis Bader (504) and Wofford's Fletcher Magee (509) as he became the career leader (513) in 3-pointers made by any Division I men's basketball player ever.

Davis also moved into third place all-time in career scoring (3,232 points) in NCAA Division I history, just 17 points out of second place all-time and 435 points behind Pete Maravich's record of 3,667 points.

He hit eight 3-pointers in the first half to clinch the record by halftime of the game with the Colonials. Davis already holds NCAA records for 3-pointers by a freshman (132) and consecutive games scoring in double figures (130).

Following the weekend, Davis was also named the Horizon League Player of the Week for a league-record 11th time in his Detroit Mercy career.

The Titans improved to 3-5 in the Horizon League standings and next play at home Monday, Jan. 23, hosting rival Oakland.
