The Detroit Mercy Titans are set to visit Arena-Auditorium in Laramie, Wyoming for a non-conference clash against the Wyoming Cowboys. The Detroit Mercy Titans come into this matchup with a 0-2 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent road game against the Clemson Tigers, 87-65. Leading the way for the Detroit Mercy Titans was sophomore guard Antoine Davis as he recorded 26 points and 6 assists. Senior forward Justin Miller had a productive game off the bench for the Titans as he pitched in 13 points and 13 rebounds.
The Detroit Mercy Titans struggled shooting the ball against the Clemson Tigers as they connected on 19 of their 59 field goal attempts (32.2%), and they were slightly worse from behind the three-point line (29.2%). The Detroit Mercy Titans lost the turnover battle against the Clemson Tigers (18-14), and they were edged out by the Tigers in the rebounding department (39-38).
The Wyoming Cowboys come into this matchup with a 1-3 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent home game against the Oregon State Beavers, 83-63. Leading the way for the Wyoming Cowboys was sophomore guard Hunter Maldonado as he recorded 18 points and 5 rebounds. Senior guard A.J. Banks had a solid outing for the Cowboys as he pitched in 10 points and 2 steals.
The Wyoming Cowboys struggled shooting the ball against the Oregon State Beavers as they connected on 20 of their 48 field goal attempts (41.7%), and they were significantly worse from behind the three-point line (20.8%). The Wyoming Cowboys lost the turnover battle against the Oregon State Beavers (15-12), and they were edged out by the Cowboys in the rebounding department (34-27).
Both of these teams opened the season against tough opponents which is a reason their records are skewed, but I think Detroit Mercy has the better roster and should pull away with a road win. Detroit Mercy has one of the most electric scorers in college basketball as Antoine Davis is averaging 27 PPG and 5 APG, and he should be able to shoulder most of the load against Wyoming. Wyoming will have a big problem on their hands if they can’t find a main source of production, and that has been the story all season long as they rank 349th in points scored. Expect the better player in Antoine Davis to do enough to put the Titans in the win column.
