DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Titans have advanced in each of their last two NCAA tournament appearances.
It will be tough for the Titans to pull off the feat again.
Detroit was seeded 15th in the Midwest region and matched up with No. 2 Kansas on Friday in Omaha, Neb.
The Titans knocked off UCLA in 1999, the last time they were in the NCAA tournament, a year after stunning St. John’s. They lost lopsided second-round games each of those years.
Detroit earned the Horizon League’s automatic bid by beating Valparaiso in the conference tournament final.
Sophomore guard Ray McCallum could have went to a bigger school, but chose to play for his father, who has the same name, at the mid-major program in the Motor City.
