DETROIT (AP) Paris Bass and Jalen Gibson will not return to Detroit Mercy next season.

The Horizon League school said Tuesday both are now free to play elsewhere.

Bass averaged a team-high 18.4 points last season for the Titans. Gibson appeared in only five games.

The school did not say why they are leaving. In a statement, new coach Bacari Alexander described them as ''fine young men who come from terrific hard-working families.'' The school says it will not comment further.
