Two University of Detroit players received preseason honors from the Horizon League this week. Point guard Ray McCallum, the defending Horizon League Player of the Year, was also awarded the preseason honor heading into his junior season:

McCallum, the HL preseason Player of the Year and first team selection for the second-straight season, was named the Horizon League Tournament MVP last year after he helped lead the Titans to the League crown and their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1999. McCallum led the team in scoring (15.4 ppg), assists (4.0 apg) and steals (1.6 spg) for the second-straight season. He was named to the Lou Henson All-America team as well as the National Basketball Coaches Association (NBCA) All-District First Team and the National All-Jesuit Team after a superb season that saw him become the 37th Titan to surpass 1,000 career points and the first to do it as a sophomore.

Here’s an interview I did with McCallum earlier this fall.

Another Titan, Nick Minnerath, was named to the preseason All-Horizon League Second Team.
