DETROIT — Antoine Davis of Detroit Mercy set the NCAA career record for 3-pointers on Saturday, hitting a career-best 11 3s and scoring a season-high 41 points in an 87-75 win over Robert Morris.

Davis shot 11-for-18 from long distance and was 15-for-26 overall. His 11 3-pointers increased his career total to 513, eclipsing the previous record of 509 by Fletcher Magee of Wofford from 2014 to ’19. Davis entered the game chasing Magee and Oakland’s Travis Bader (504 3s from 2010 to ’14).

Davis, a 6-foot-1, fifth-year guard, had his fifth career game of 40 points, tied for 13th in school history.

Davis, 24, has 3,232 career points, good for third in NCAA history. He is 17 points away from second place and 435 points behind Pete Maravich’s NCAA record of 3,667. Davis’ 1,081 career field goals rank 15th in NCAA history.

The Titans (7-12, 3-5 Horizon League) ended a four-game losing streak.

The Colonials (8-11, 3-5) were led by Enoch Cheeks, who had 22 points and seven rebounds. Kahliel Spear added 15 points, seven rebounds and two blocks.
