Norse won handily in the game at Detroit 95-73. Titans come in having lost 4 of 5. KenPom predicts an 80-68 win or 85% chance of winning. Detroit Mercy struggles defensively allowing an adjusted 108.5 points per 100 possessions which ranks 266th. By comparison, NKU allows 102.0 which ranks 135th. UDM is average offensively scoring 104.0 per 100 which ranks 170th. Norse rank 70th at 109.2.
Should be a good night for NKU to get back to its winning ways. Will also be fun to watch UDM freshman Antoine Davis. He is 2nd in the nation in taking 39.2% of his team's shots when he's on the floor. Knocks down threes at a good clip (40.6%) and free throws (86.4%) but does not shoot the two well (41.9%).
