DETROIT MERCY BIG WIN ON THE ROAD AT JAMES MADISON 71-67

Post  Admin on Wed Nov 20, 2013 1:36 am






Sophomore guard Carlton Brundidge scored a career-high 22 points as the University of Detroit Mercy men's basketball team spoiled James Madison's banner raising night with a 71-67 win Tuesday at the JMU Convocation Center. The Dukes began the night with a banner raising ceremony to honor the 2012-13 team that won the CAA Championship and a trip to the NCAA Tournament.

Detroit (2-2) led 69-63 with 33 seconds left in regulation, before JMU's Charles Cooke drained a three-pointer with 28 ticks left to trim the lead to three 69-66. Detroit junior forward Juwan Howard Jr. was then fouled but missed the front end of a one-and-one opportunity from the charity stripe to keep the margin three. Howard then fouled Cooke during the Dukes possession, but like Howard he to missed the first of two free throws before netting the second to trim the Titans lead to 69-67 with 15 second left. Brundidge was then fouled on the Titans possession and made both free throws to put Detroit up four 71-67 with 10 seconds left. Cooke missed a three-point attempt in the closing seconds to seal a hard fought road win for the Titans.

Brundidge finished with a game-high 22 points on 6-of-9 shooting, including 4-of-6 from downtown, while Howard pitched in 15 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Freshman guard Jarod Williams had another strong outing in front of 40-50 hometown fans as he finished with 11 points, two assists and a steal in his first collegiate start, while his backcourt classmate Matthew Grant recorded nine points and three assists. Senior Evan Bruinsma led the Titans with a team-high eight rebounds, while his classmate Ugochukwu Njoku grabbed seven boards to go along with five points and two timely blocked shots.
