Five days after a series of big fouls on Detroit Mercy goaltender Antoine Davis was aiming to prevent a record-breaking 3-point performance by Mike Davis, his coach (and father), the goaltender. UDM finally got his record.
Men's basketball statistics
Davis made four of his 12 3-point attempts Thursday at Calihan Hall to give him 125 points of 3 points over the season, three better than Stephen Curry's previous record in the NCAA, established at Davidson in 2006-07 .
Even better: the Titans (11-18, 8-9 Horizon League) have won, surpassing IUPUI, 87-85, behind 20 points from Davis and 23 from senior guard Josh McFolley.
Davis and McFolley were two out of five Titans to score in double digits. Rookie Marquis Moore had 10 points and 10 rebounds for UDM.

The Titans will finish their schedule of the regular season with a visit to Illinois-Chicago at 4 pm. Saturday. The Horizon League tournament begins at campus sites on March 5th. UDM is tied with Youngstown State and IUPUI for sixth place. The semi-finals and finals will take place at Detroit's Little Caesars Arena on March 11-12.
The Titans could face Oakland in the first round. The Grizzlies were the team that faced Davis on Saturday and caused the Mike Davis explosion.
