Sinclair Men’s Basketball wins record-setting 102-100 in double overtime over Hocking College

Dayton, OH​ – The Sinclair (14-11) Men’s Basketball Team traveled to Hocking College for a conference match Wednesday February 12. The Pride won a highly competitive contest that took going into 2 OTs to pull out the win 102-100. After going five years without an OT game for the Sinclair program, they were faced with back-to-back overtime meetings and sneaked out the win on both occasions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Pride struggled on the defensive end early in the game, giving up offensive rebounds on the first 5 possessions and allowing the Hawks to stay close. After the initial struggles of adjusting to the environment and the hostile crowd that Hocking provided, Sinclair slowly came into their own. The Pride were able to play aggressive defense and force the Hawks into low percentage shots. Continuously pounding the paint was working wonders for Sinclair as they were able to get easy layups or force the fouls.

 

Stanley Williams (6-07/FR – Eastmoor Academy, OH)​ had a tremendous half, posting 10 points on 5-6 shooting and 5 rebounds. Once the Pride started boxing out, they were able to take away the offensive rebounds, ultimately Hocking’s best offense. With a 38-30 lead at the break Sinclair still had a lot of things to fix. Shooting a dismal 4-11 from the free throw line and giving up a total of 11 offensive rebounds.

 

The Pride came out of the break and started firing errant and early shots, while falling for several pump fakes before seeing the 8-point halftime lead evaporate. ​Jack Hendricks (5-11/FR – Fairmont HS, OH) ​did a tremendous job playing in the passing lanes and getting consecutive steals. Sinclair took a page out of Hocking’s book and started crashing the offensive glass and saw themselves getting easy buckets.

 

The Pride found the game tied up 74-74 at the end of the 40 minutes. Sinclair was able to start the overtime period with three consecutive 3 point plays. But, even with near perfect execution, the game was knotted up 91-91 as the buzzer sounded. With both teams facing serious foul problems, ​Jack Hendricks ​was able to hit some timely 3s and help Sinclair to a 102-100 2OT win.

 

Nate Ward (6-04/FR – Gahanna Lincoln HS, OH) ​posted 34 points on 10-20 shooting before fouling out late in overtime after posting 34. ​David Brown (6-05/FR – Linden McKinley HS, OH)​ flirted with a triple-double having 12 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists.

 

Stanley Williams ​ended with 16 points and 8 rebounds. ​Jack Hendricks ​shot 6-9 from behind the arc having 18 points. It took a true team effort to come away with the win.

 

The win gives ​Coach Jeff Price​ his 306th career win at Sinclair, breaking the school record for most wins in program history.

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY & COURTESY OF WRIGHT STATE ATHLETICS

Wright State continues NE Ohio road trip to Cleveland State this afternoon at 3 pm

The Wright State men’s basketball team wraps up its two-game trip to northeast Ohio on Saturday afternoon when the Raiders take on Cleveland State in a 3 p.m. tipoff on ESPN3. Wright State is coming off of a loss on Thursday night but remains in the drivers’ seat of the Horizon League standings, with a one-game lead over Northern Kentucky with two games remaining – including a matchup against the Norse next Friday night to end the regular season.

The Raiders (23-6 overall, 13-3 HL) have won the last five games against Cleveland State, including earlier this season inside the Nutter Center. Cleveland State is 10-18 overall and has a 6-9 mark in Horizon League play.

Last time out, Wright State got four double-figure scorers on Thursday night, but it wouldn’t be enough as Youngstown State handed the Raiders an 88-70 loss on the road. Loudon Love finished with a team-high 17 points for Wright State with Bill Wampler tallying 16 of his own. Tanner Holden (14 points, team-high six rebounds) and Jordan Ash (10 points) were the other Raiders in double figures. In total, the four combined for 57 of the team’s 70 points, with the remaining 13 spread between three players. The biggest stat of the night came on the glass, as Youngstown State finished with a 43-24 rebounding edge while winning the battles on both the offensive and defensive boards.

THE VIKING AGE
Saturday will be the 75th meeting all-time between Wright State and Cleveland State, with the Raiders holding a 40-34 advantage and having won the last five matchups, including a 75-62 home win back in mid-January. The Raiders have now won nine of the last 11 meetings overall, and four in a row in the series at home inside the Nutter Center. Earlier this season, four Raiders finished in double-figures scoring, led by Tanner Holden’s 16 points. Cole Gentry added 14 and Loudon Love had 13 points, while Grant Basile tallied a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Basile also added four blocks for the Raiders. Scott Nagy is 7-1 against Cleveland State with the Raiders.

BELIEVE-LAND
Cleveland State is coming off of a home loss to Northern Kentucky on Thursday night and has lost four of its last five overall. Cleveland State is 10-18 overall and is 6-7 at home. Algevon Eichelberger has 16 straight double-figure scoring games, after pouring in 12 points on 6-12 (.500) shooting from the floor, four rebounds, one assist and one block in 28 minutes of action against NKU (Feb. 20). Tre Gomillion dished out a career-high eight assists, to go along with a team-high eight rebounds and seven points in 30 minutes of play on Feb. 20 against Northern Kentucky. Cleveland State ranks among the top 15 in Division I in free throw attempts, having taken 623 this season. Cleveland State has attempted double digit free throws in every game this season and has attempted 20+ freebies in 20 of 28 games. The Vikings made a season-high 27 free throws, on 29 attempts, Jan. 23 vs. Green Bay, shooting 93.1 percent from the line.

THE BIG 5-0(0)
Wright State head coach Scott Nagy is approaching the latest milestone of his coaching career, sitting on 499 career wins heading into the matchup with Cleveland State. Nagy won 410 games in 21 seasons at South Dakota State before tallying seasons of 20, 25, 21 and 23 (and counting) wins with the Raiders.

His career-high for victories in a season is 27, which he did twice at South Dakota State (2003-04: 27-7 and 2011-12: 27-8). His Wright State high of 25 wins came in 2017-18 when the Raiders won the Horizon League Championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.

OBJECTS CLOSER THAN THEY APPEAR
Wright State’s program record for the most wins in a regular season is 26, set during the 1985-86 season during the team’s Division II Era. The most wins in a season in the Division I Era for Wright State is 23 (twice: 2006-07 & 2012-13). Including postseason play, the Raiders have won 28 games in a season twice (1982-83 & 1985-86).

The Raiders won a program-best 13 Horizon League games in the 2006-07 season, a mark in serious danger this year. With three regular season road conference games remaining, the Raiders currently sit with four Horizon League road victories – one behind tying the program record of five league road victories in a season, done four times previously (2003-04, 2006-07, 2007-08 & 2018-19).
