The Detroit Mercy Titans are the 28th DI program and fourth in the ASUN to release their 2022 men’s lacrosse schedule. The Titans are coming off a 2021 campaign in which they went 3-4 overall (3-2 MAAC) against a MAAC-only schedule and fell to St. Bonaventure in the conference quarterfinals. 2022 will mark the Titans’ first season in the newly relaunched ASUN.
Titans’ 2022 Schedule:
|2/5||Ohio State||Detroit Mercy|
|2/19||Notre Dame||Detroit Mercy|
|3/26||High Point||Detroit Mercy|
|4/2||Detroit Mercy||Robert Morris||ASUN|
|4/9||Detroit Mercy||Air Force||ASUN|
|4/23||Detroit Mercy||Cleveland State||ASUN|
3/5 @ Marquette: The Titans open up the season with five road contest, including four against regional Midwest opponents. One of those meetings is against the Marquette Golden Eagles. Detroit Mercy has faced Marquette eight times in history with the Golden Eagles taking seven of those meetings. Detroit Mercy’s only win in the series came in 2019, 15-12, in Milwaukee.
4/2 vs Robert Morris: Detroit Mercy’s home opener marks their first-ever ASUN game as they welcome in the Robert Morris Colonials. The Titans have faced the Colonials eight times in history and come up victorious just once in 2015, winning an 11-10 overtime battle. With Robert Morris likely to be a top team in the ASUN, a win against the Colonials would be huge for this Titans program.
4/23 vs Cleveland State: In the rebooted ASUN, Air Force, Robert Morris, and Utah should be the top three teams. That fourth spot in the conference tournament will likely be a fight between Detroit Mercy, Cleveland State, and Bellarmine. This contest against the Vikings could be crucial if the Titans want a shot at playing in May. Having met three times before, Detroit Mercy holds a 2-1 series lead.
