Antoine Davis of Detroit Mercy, the 22nd top scorer in college basketball history, to enter the transfer portal

Detroit goalkeeper Antoine Davisone of the top scorers in college basketball history, on Thursday said he’s entering the transfer window.

“After a lot of thought and consideration, I decided to enter the transfer portal,” Davis posted on Twitter. “I will always remember the University of Detroit Mercy and what you did for me. I wouldn’t be in this position without the university giving me a chance as a student-athlete. It was an honor to be a Titan and to play in the Horizon League against great players and coaches, and I loved every second of coaching my father and brother.”

“I also want to thank our fans. I loved everything the Detroit Mercy gave me from basketball to my education. I will always be a Titan.”

Davis, son of current Detroit coach Mike Davis, was one of the truly top scorers during his four years with the Titans. He averaged 24.6 points over four seasons, ranking in the top five nationally in all four seasons in scoring. He ranked third last season at 23.9 per game, third in 2020-21 at 24.0 per game, fourth in 2019-20 at 24.3 per game and third in 2018-19 at 26.1 per game.

He was named Commonwealth Horizon League Player of the Year this past season and was the first player in league history to win four All-Horizon First Team Honors.

Davis ranks 22nd of all time in career points entering next season. If he continues at his four-year pace as a senior, he will end up with more than 3,400 career points — which would be second to all-time behind only LSU legend Pete Maravich.
