It got even more complex when point guard Mario Chalmers was unable to return in the second half due to Achilles tendinitis, with Norris Cole starting the third period in his place.

"It has been an ongoing situation," Chalmers said. "It started about a week ago. I have no idea how it happened. The doctors said I have to take it day by day. It just flared up."

Evan Bruinsma scored 17 points and Detroit scored seven straight points from the foul line down the stretch to turn back Wright State, 58-53, today.

Wright State (9-8, 1-1 Horizon League) had recovered from a 10-0 surge by Detroit (8-8, 1-0) to tie the game at 51 with 3:21 to play.

Meanwhile, Detroit got two free throws from Juwan Howard Jr., three from Jarod Williams and two by Anton Wilson to take control.

For the game, the Titans went 20 of 31 from the free-throw line to overcome 36.4% shooting from the field and 16 turnovers.
