The Detroit News

The Detroit Mercy men’s basketball team is getting some immediate help.

The Titans announced Monday the addition of fifth-year transfer Roschon Prince, who played the past two seasons at Long Beach State.

The 6-foot-6, 235-pound Prince averaged 9.4 points and a team-high 6.9 rebounds last season. He played in 34 games, including 19 starts. He had nine double-doubles, which was second in the Big West.

“Having a veteran like Roschon gives us a player that’s a versatile wing who rebounds relentlessly,” Detroit Mercy coach Bacari Alexander said in a release from the school. “It became very evident that we needed to add some size and strength to our wing positions, and Roschon brings a unique element of toughness and maturity to our program which is very valuable.”

The Long Beach, California, native averaged 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 2015-16. He spent his freshman season at USC, playing in 27 games (two starts).
