The Detroit Titans head out on the road to visit the Bowling Green Falcons at the Stroh Center.
Despitelosing their fair share of talent from a year ago Detroit can still pack a wallop offensively but whether that is enough to make them a contender in the Horizon has yet to be determined. The defense has struggled in dropping three of four and the offense didn't help either in a 79-60 defeat at Akron. The Titans actually led by nine before the wheels fell off in the second half with the Zips firing away at 48% and limiting the Titans to 36% which was game over. Anton Williams came off the bench to net 16 points with Juwan Howard Jr. and Evan Bruinsma tossing in 13 and 12 points and snagging eleven boards.

Bowling Green has an ordinary record and doesn't stand out in any one area but they have been playing well with wins in three of four with the lone defeat coming to Xavier in overtime on the road. The Falcons come in off of a 67-61 road decision over Morehead State to even their record at 5-5 as they rallied from a four point deficit at the half behind 49% marksmanship while holding the Eagles to 31%. MSU stayed competitive with 25 more looks at the basket but to no avail because of their shooting woes. Richaun Hollmes tossed in 17 points with five yanks and seven blocks followed by Spencer Parker and Jehvon Clarke with 12 points apiece while Cameron Black and Anthony Henderson netted eleven points with Black grabbing 12 rebounds.
Neither team is a clear cut favorite to win and I would not be surprised by whatever happens. Detroit might be the hardest to figure so I'll take the home team...
