    DETROIT (AP) -- Drew Burleson had 15 points, including the go-ahead basket with two minutes to play, to help Wright State top Detroit Mercy 67-61 on Saturday.

    The Raiders (6-8, 4-1 Horizon League) outscored the host Titans 11-2 in the final four minutes.

    Detroit (7-6, 1-2) led by as many as 13 points in the second half, but watched the Raiders rally to tie the game with about seven minutes to play.

    An 11-2 Raider run, capped by a Dashaun Wood layup, gave Wright State its first lead since the early minutes of the game.

    Elijah Warren hit a 3-pointer with 4:05 to play to give the Titans their last lead.

    After hitting half of one-and-one, Burleson put the Raiders in front for good when he laid in a steal, was fouled and converted the three-point play. Detroit had a chance to tie or take the lead in the final minute, but Wood stole the ball in the lane.

    Wright State managed just five points in a nine-minute stretch of the first half, allowing Detroit to push its lead into double-digits. The Titans hit half of their field-goal attempts in the opening half, and outscored the Raiders 17-5 during their cold snap.

    Seth Doliboa added a game-high 17 points for Wright State. Warren finished with 13 to lead Detroit.
