HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (AP) — Trevon Faulkner drilled a 3-pointer at the end of regulation and Marques Warrick’s 19 points helped Northern Kentucky defeat Detroit Mercy 78-76 in overtime on Sunday.

After Faulkner tied the game at 71 with his contested 3 from the top-right, A’Lahn Sumler hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with two minutes to go and then Warrick a jumper at 1:14 for a 77-73 lead.

The Titans had a chance at the buzzer after an intentionally missed free throw but the Norse corralled the rebound.

Warrick also added six assists for the Norse (10-7, 5-1 Horizon League). Faulkner scored 14 points while shooting 4 for 10 (2 for 5 from 3-point range) and 4 of 4 from the free throw line. Sumler shot 5 for 12, including 2 for 7 from beyond the arc to finish with 12 points, while adding six rebounds.

Antoine Davis led the way for the Titans (6-11) with 29 points, giving him 3,159 for his career, which is sixth in the NCAA record book. He also had seven rebounds, four assists and three steals. Davis hit five 3-pointers, leaving him five away from second and 10 away from Fletcher Magee’s NCAA record of 509 career-3-pointers. Jayden Stone added 24 points and nine rebounds for Detroit Mercy. Kyle LeGreair also recorded nine points and four assists.
