Detroit Mercy has one of the best players in the Horizon in Antoine Davis, however, this is still a team that has struggled on both ends of the court and comes into this game ranked 202nd in scoring offense, 231st in FG%, & 300th in defensive FG%. Robert Morris has been playing better as of late, winning 3 of their last 4 games, and as I think their offense which ranks 112th in FG%, will have some success on their home court against a Detroit team that is just 4-11 on the road, I’m taking Robert Morris and the points in this one. Good Luck!
