Detroit Mercy Titans Basketball Schedule
Callahan Hall, the Detroit, Michigan home of the Detroit Mercy Titans
basketball team, really comes to life during the college basketball season when it fills up with more than 8,200 screaming
red, white, and blue Titans fans. As the Titans enter Horizon League play they will be looking to score some big time upsets
as they try to reestablish themselves as a major factor in the conference en route to an appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
Replete with impressive passing, dunking, shooting, and lock down defense, the Detroit Mercy Titans always bring the excitement.
The Titans had their fair share of struggles a year ago, finishing 13-19 and in 8th place in the Horizon League, but they
have a strong core of returning players who are determined to turn things around.
The Detroit Mercy Titans will once
again be going up against all of the toughest teams in the Horizon League including the Cleveland State Vikings, the Wisconsin
- Green Bay Phoenix, the Wisconsin Milwaukee Panthers, the Oakland Golden Grizzlies, the Illinois - Chicago Flames, the Valparaiso
Crusaders, the Wright State Raiders, and the Youngstown State Penguins. Navigating through the difficult Horizon League regular
season schedule is a daunting task but this year's Titans team seems to have the talent to make some real noise in the conference
as they attempt to climb up the standings and score some big wins on their way to their first NCAA Tournament berth since
2012. The Titans will need all the help they can get from their dedicated fan base when they take on tough teams at Callahan
Hall so be sure to get your tickets to support the Huskies from StubHub as soon as possible.
Detroit Mercy Titans
The long and proud history of Detroit Mercy basketball dates back well over a decade, all the way
to the 1905-1906 season. The Titans have been a party of 6 NCAA Tournaments, most recently in 2012 when they were defeated
by Kansas in the Round of 64. The 1977 team had the most success in the Tournament and are the only Detroit Mercy Titans team
to date to have made it to the Sweet Sixteen. Head coach Ray McCallum has proven himself capable of making all the right calls
and motivating his team. This could well be the year that the Titans make it back to the NCAA Tournament sparked by an impressive
run through the Horizon League.
Detroit Mercy Titans Basketball Conference
The Detroit Mercy Titans play
in the Horizon League which has made its mark on the NCAA Tournament and college basketball at large for years. The conference
sent 24 teams to the Big Dance between 1995 and 2011 and continue to send teams looking to shake things up and hopefully emerge
as this year's Cinderella. In fact the Horizon League is the only non-BCS conference to send five teams to the Sweet Sixteen
in the last nine years. Playing a tough conference schedule always prepares the team or teams emerging from the Horizon League
to make their mark in the Tourney and ideally make a deep run and upset some of the powerhouse programs. Once again the Horizon
League is looking to be one of the most hotly contended conferences in all of college hoops so get your tickets and brace
yourself for some end to end action.
Attending a top college basketball game is one of
the best experiences to be found in sports. Many of the best student athletes in the world take the court in college basketball,
when this is combined with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports there is an atmosphere in the arena that cannot
be found anywhere else. When you set foot in Callahan Hall for a Detroit Mercy Titans home basketball game this will all be
clear. As the teams set up for opening jump ball the fans get on their feet and loudly cheer for their alma mater and hometown
favorites. The game continues full of end to end action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. All of a sudden the clock
is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with
each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball
tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Titans' side erupts after another big win and their fans
exit of the arena in jubilation. The moment you leave the Callahan Hall you will want to immediately start planning your next
trip to the venue to cheer on the Titans.
College basketball fanatics are very familiar with ESPN
commentator Dick Vitale who coached the Detroit Mercy Titans and led the program to the NCAA Tournament twice.
