The University of Detroit Mercy Department of Athletics is proud to announce that the 5th Annual City College Series DPS Benefit Game is set for Thursday, Nov. 2 as the men's basketball team host city-rival Wayne State in an exhibition contest.

The game is scheduled to tip at 7:00 p.m., inside historic Calihan Hall. Tickets to the game will be just $2 (cash only on game day, no advance sales), and all proceeds will go to Detroit Public Schools, K-5, with Michigan First Credit Union matching the proceeds.

This is the fifth time Detroit Mercy will play a game to give back to DPS. In 2022, Titan Athletics solicited donations online and in-person at all men's and women's home basketball games, which totaled $2,500, and the matching contribution gave the DPS Foundation $5,000.

In the history of the event, Titan Athletics and Michigan First have helped raise nearly $30,000 for DPS K-5 between ticket sales and matching contributions from the Credit Union.
