Free Press article today.

https://www.freep.com/story/sports/2019/01/17/detroit-mercy-antoine-davis-mike-davis/2599022002/

Excerpt from this article:

"If Antoine were playing for Michigan or Michigan State, you would be worn out by the constant coverage and the pundits’ breathless bloviating. Instead, reporters have to rely on Antoine’s unfortunate rivals for an assessment."

Detroit News article today.

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/columnists/john-niyo/2019/01/16/john-niyo-detroit-mercys-revival-family-project-davis-clan/2592490002/

Excerpt:

And while the larger goals are still a long way off — getting to the NCAA Tournament first, Antoine says, “and turning this into a winning program again” — he’s enjoying seeing all that hard work starting to pay off.

“This,” he adds, nodding,”is what we came here to do.”

After reading the News article, I feel even better knowing that we not only beat Kampe in recruiting AD but also Bruce Pearl, who was Kampe before we acknowledged that Kampe existed.

I’m one of the fossils who still get paper versions of the two local newspapers, which by the way now have a sticker price of $2 (I remember when they were a dime). The Detroit News story referenced above is prominently featured in the paper version. The Detroit Free Press’ well-written story can only be accessed in cyberspace. The Freep did manage to find space to run an article on U-M’s Jim Harbaugh offering a scholarship to a seventh grader. Maybe the UDM story will get in tomorrow’s edition.

Yes, today’s Free Press print edition has the article on the front of the sports section with a big picture. Nice!

not me, but i am so glad to see it! buzzzzzzzzzz.
In Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that basketball court out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans! (with apologies to coach boon)

Another honor.

This time:

@GoodmanHoops thinks he's the best freshman in the land [not playing on Duke's roster]. #DetroitsCollegeTeam

Just saw a nice little shoutout to Antoine for the record from Gus Johnson during the MSU-Indiana game while they showed a brief In The News graphic (he twice mentioned the “University of Detroit”).

If Antoine gets 2 assists today, he will be the first Titan since Ray McCallum, Jr. and Jason Calliste to record 100 or more assists in a season. Both Ray Jr and Jason had more than 100 assists in the 2012-13 season. Since that time, no Titan has notched 100 or more assists in a season.

That, fellow Titan fans, is an embarrassing statistic. It does, however, provide a good representation of the product we were watching over the past 6 years. Not reaching 100 assists shows that we've not had a consistent presence at PG in far too long.

Before the game, he announced that he will skip the NBA draft and return to our titans next season.

Also, Davis misses Rashad Phillips' all-time season point record by one point. 784 points in the year. 132 three-point baskets falls 4 short of school record. 107 assists for the season, first Titan with over 100 assists since Ray Jr with 147 and Jason Calliste with 109 both recorded those assists in the 2012-13 season.

It'll be fun to watch AD move up that list over the next few seasons.

Congrats, Antoine. Made us proud again. And you'll continue to. Glad you're a Titan.
