    DETROIT (AP) - Elijah Warren scored 21 points and connected on five of his eight 3-point attempts Thursday to help Detroit Mercy get past UIC, 70-67.

    The visiting Flames had a chance to tie the game with three seconds to play but were unable to get a shot off before the buzzer.

    Detroit (8-6, 2-2 Horizon League), which led the entire second half, was 8-for-8 at the free-throw line in the final three minutes, including a pair from Warren with four seconds to play.

    The win completed a season sweep of the Flames (11-6, 2-3) and ended Detroit's two-game home losing streak, the Titans' longest since the 1994-95 season.

    Illinois-Chicago's Aaron Carr and Cedrick Banks finished the game with 22 and 15 points, respectively. Ryvon Coville had 12 points and three rebounds for Detroit.

    The Titans made 14 of their 18 field-goal attempts in the first half and led 11-0 to start, but the Flames stayed close by hitting five 3-pointers and scoring 14 points off 12 Detroit turnovers.

    Banks sank a triple from just inside the half court line at the buzzer to trim Illinois-Chicago's deficit to 36-31 at the break.
