The University of Detroit Mercy men’s basketball non-conference schedule has been released, and it is one head coach Ray McCallum hopes serves the Titans well as they prepare for Horizon League play.
UDM is scheduled to open the regular season Nov. 8, on the road to play the University of South Alabama, before returning home to play the University of Michigan-Dearborn Nov. 11.
The Titans are scheduled to travel to the University of Connecticut to face the Huskies Nov. 15, followed by a trip to take on a James Madison University team that won its opening-round game in the NCAA tournament last season.
Perhaps the most exciting part of U of D’s non-conference schedule is set to take place Nov. 22-24, when the Titans will be the host school for the 2K Sports Classic benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. Each day will consist of a minimum of two games, with the Titans playing in the nightcap.
Following the 2K Sports Classic, the Titans are scheduled to face the University of South Florida Nov. 30, followed by a trip to the University of Toledo Dec. 4.
U of D will be at home Dec. 8 against Rhode Island before heading to North Carolina State to take on the Wolfpack Dec. 14.
Next up is a road game against University of Akron Dec. 18 and a game at Bowling Green State University Dec. 22. They return to Calihan Hall to complete the non-conference schedule with games against Indiana Tech (Dec. 23) and Bethune-Cookman (Dec. 30).
