News On The Horizon 1/16/2019

Chris Mack, Jeff Capel and More College Coaches Standing Out in Year One--Sports Illustrated
Mike Davis at Detroit

Last season: 8–24 overall, 4–14 in the Horizon League, 319th in KenPom

This season: 8–10 overall, 5–1 in the Horizon League, 203rd in KenPom

Don’t let the Titans’ losing record fool you—despite taking their lumps during the nation’s 35th-hardest non-conference schedule, this is a team with very legitimate NCAA tournament hopes. With his son, freshman guard Antoine Davis, playing with the greenest of lights (he takes a whopping 40.0% of Detroit’s shots while on the floor, averaging 27.7 points per game and making 42.1% of his threes), the onetime Indiana coach has already guided the Titans past last season’s league-low win total in conference play, giving them worst-to-first hopes. The next hurdle will be getting past league favorite Northern Kentucky, who dealt Detroit its lone Horizon League loss so far, by 22 points.
Frosh Watch: East Carolina's Jayden Gardner wins Freshman of the Week honors after absurd 35-and-20 performances--CBS Sports
4. ANTOINE DAVIS, Detroit

Key stats: 27.7 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 112.2 KenPom ORtg

In most weeks, Antoine Davis would be a shoo-in to be Frosh of the Week: He scored 29 points in a win over Green Bay on Thursday, then followed it up on Saturday with a 32 point outburst in a win over Milwaukee. Gardner simply went full-blown heat check to steal it from him. In any case, Davis' season-long steadiness and consistency has earned him a spot full-time in the Frosh Watch. He leads all freshmen in points scored per game and is getting his buckets on an efficient diet of 2-pointers and 3-point field goals; he's shooting 42.3 percent from the field and 42.1 percent from 3-point range through 18 games on the season. And as a bonus, Detroit Mercy is turning a corner: The Titans have won five of their last six games after a shaky 3-9 start to the season.
