Jaelan Sanford led Toledo (5-3) with 23 points and Fletcher finished with 16 points, 15 rebounds and six assists. Luke Knapke scored 15, Marreon Jackson 14 and Navigato 10. The Rockets outrebounded Detroit Mercy 44-32.

McFolley finished with 24 points, Kameron Chatman and Corey Allen each scored 17 and Jermaine Jackson Jr. had 11 points for Detroit Mercy (4-5).

McFolley had a 4-point play with 50 seconds left to pull to 83-82. He scored Detroit Mercy's last eight points in a 48-second span.
