After securing a breakthrough win over the University of California Irvine, the Titans (1-4, 0-0 in the Horizon League) fell to Louisiana-Lafayette by 19 points in one of the middleweight bracket games in the MGM Resorts Main Event tournament on Monday. Detroit Mercy Titans were shackled early on, with the Ragin’ Cajuns limiting them to just 5-of-24 in the first half for a 24-34 deficit. Despite the efforts by Antoine Davis, who came up with 30 points in 35 minutes of action, they could not able to hold off Louisiana-Lafayette’s offense in the second half, resulting in another setback. The Titans were limited to just 34.7 shooting from the field and 8-for-30 from way downtown. Detroit Mercy will have to step up in both sides of the court in their matchup against Ohio to secure their second win in three outings.

Three other Ohio players scored in double figures with Jason Preston and Sylvester Ogbonda contributing 15 and 12 points, respectively. Ben Vander Plas was a monster on the boards as he grabbed 11 rebounds to go along six points.
