In four games over the last fortnight for the Detroit Mercy Titans, Bul Kuol has averaged almost 18 points per game, bringing his average for the season to just over 15 points. In a 10 point win against Purdue Fort Wayne, Bul shot at close to 60% – including 5-12 from beyond the arc – to score a career high of 29 points.
As a versatile and athletic 6’7″ guard/forward, Bul has energised the Titans, who are currently 8-6 in conference play. With only two games left in the regular season, the Titans look set to participate in the Conference playoffs – something the team did not manage last year.
Maris Colton has been putting in solid double-digit performances since his return from a shoulder injury.
Callie and Issie Bourne have both been crashing the boards. With few exceptions, they are sitting at the top of each game’s stat sheet for rebounds. Callie is currently ranked in the top 100 in D1 Womens Basketball for rebounds. Rosie Schweizer also dragged down a game-topping 7 rebounds this fortnight.
