YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Chase Simon scored 18 points and Detroit shot 65.2 percent in the second half to edge Youngstown State 76-74 Saturday.

They led the rest of the way, but the Penguins (15-14, 10-8) cut the margin to 72-71 with 1:31 left. After two free throws by Simon and one by Youngstown State's Ashen Ward, Eli Holman's dunk with 9 seconds left put the Titans up 76-72.
