Although the University of Detroit returns the league’s best player and other key contributors from last year’s league championship team, Yahoo!’s Jeff Eisenberg has the Titans finishing second to Valparaiso this season:
If Detroit can challenge Valparaiso, point guard Ray McCallum will have to be the catalyst. McCallum, a top 75 recruit who chose Detroit to play for his father, enjoyed a breakout sophomore season last year, averaging 15.4 points per game and leading the Titans to four straight wins in the Horizon League tournament.
Eisenberg did predict McCallum would win Horizon League Player of the Year (as did the coaches) and listed McCallum as the leagu’es best playmaker.
