The Titans offense scored 79 points against the vaunted Shocker defense, which is the most the Shockers have given up all year. Unfortunately for the Titans, Wichita St. scored their most points of the season with 94.
Malcom Armstead lead the WSU attack with 20 points and 6 assists and was a perfect 5-5 at the foul stripe. Carl Hall added 18 points and 8 boards while Cleanthony Early had 18 points and 7 rebounds. Demetric Williams chipped in with 14 points.
The Titans were led by Ray McCallum, Jr. who had 29 points and Nick Minnerath who had 25 points and 7 rebounds. Doug Anderson had 11 for the Titans but struggled from the line going 1 of 6. Anderson lead off the game with a reverse alley-oop that even the Shocker crowd enjoyed.
Detroit trailed at the half 46-35, in which the Shockers had several easy layups in transition. The Titans pulled within one, 63-62, on a McCallum three pointer as the Titans seemed to have control of the game. Then WSU caused two consecutive turnovers and regained their 5 point lead and never really looked back.
The Titans couldn't get that big stop as the Shockers built the lead back up with second chance baskets and free throws. The Titans also started the game without Juwan Howard, Jr. who was injured in practice earlier this week, giving Evan Bruinsma a chance to start. This took away from Detroit's depth and team defense.
