Antoine Davis is set to play fifth season, but not in Detroit

Detroit – It has been a rather long wait with Antoine Davis: Will he stay or will he leave?

It turns out he wants to go – but he does not want to become a professional.

Davis, who starred in Detroit Mercy for four years and became the program’s leading goal scorer of all time, said Thursday he will enter the transfer portal and play a fifth (COVID) season at another school. Antoine leaves behind his father, Mike, the Titans’ head coach, and brother, Mike Jr., an assistant coach.

Davis made the announcement on social media, sending shockwaves through medium-sized basketball circles.

“It was not in the works for a long time,” Davis told The News in a phone call moments after the announcement Thursday. “I mean, I feel like I made my time here. I feel like I’ve done so much for this university, you know? Just felt it was time to explore some possibilities.”

Now the most burning question is – What was Dad’s reaction?

“He was ok with that,” Antoine said. “He just wants me to do what makes me happy.
