Kameron Chatman scored 17 points to lead seven Detroit Mercy players in double figures Monday night and the Titans picked up their first win of the season with a 105-82 victory over NAIA program Michigan-Dearborn.
Chatman was 7 for 10 from the field, including a pair of 3-pointers, and hauled in seven rebounds as Detroit (1-1) recorded its third triple digit win over UM-Dearborn since 2013. The Titans shot 53.3 percent from the field and never trailed.
UM-Dearborn cut the gap to 21-20 early in the opening half with an 11-4 burst sparked by Ashton Curd's 3-pointer but it was as close as the Wolverines got.
Detroit responded with a 10-2 run that included one of DeShawndre Black's two 3-pointers and took a 49-41 advantage into the break, then continued to pull away in the second half.
Jaleel Hogan added 14 points and Jermaine Jackson Jr. had 13. Others reaching double figures for Detroit included Tariiq Jones and Roschon Prince with 11 points each, and Josh McFolley and Corey Allen with 10 apiece.
Jason Penn got 24 points to lead Dearborn, which played the game as exhibition.
