First payoff for McCallum-McCallum pairing at Detroit

Ray McCallum Jr. could have played anywhere in America.
Kansas, UCLA and every other big-time college basketball program wanted the former Detroit Country Day star, but McCallum chose to stay home and play for his dad at Detroit.
Now player McCallum and coach Ray McCallum Sr. are going dancing, NCAA tournament style.
The Titans beat top-seeded Valparaiso at Valpo on Tuesday night to win the Horizon League tournament championship and the automatic NCAA berth that goes with the title.
McCallum Jr., a sophomore guard, had 21 points to lead the Titans to the 70-50 victory over Valparaiso  and Detroit's first NCAA bid since 1999.
The Titans are 22-13. They'll learn Sunday their first-round NCAA opponent.
