Detroit guard Antoine Davis, one of the top scorers in college basketball history, said Thursday he was entering the transfer gate.
“After careful consideration and consideration, I have decided to enter the transfer portal,” Davis posted on Twitter. “I will always remember the University of Detroit Mercy and what it did for me. I wouldn’t be in this position if not for the University giving me an opportunity as a student-athlete. I was honored to be a Titan and play in the Horizon League against great players and coaches, and loved every second of being coached by my dad and brother.
“I also want to thank our fans. I’ve loved everything Detroit Mercy has given me, from basketball to my studies. I will always be a Titan.”
Davis, the son of current Detroit coach Mike Davis, was one of the truly elite 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 No. 3 last season at 23.9 per game, No. 3 in 2020-21 at 24.0 per game, No. 4 in 2019-20 at 24.3 per game and No. 3 in 2018-19 at 26.1 per game.
He earned co-Horizon League Player of the Year honors last season and was the first player in league history to earn first-team All-Horizon honors four times.
Davis ranks 22nd all-time in career points going into next season. If he continues his four-year streak as a super senior, Davis will find himself with more than 3,400 career points — which would rank him No. 2 all-time behind lone LSU legend Pete Maravich.
