Horizon League battle tonight with Wright State hosting NKU on ESPNU

The Horizon League-leading Wright State men’s basketball team closes its homestand with a national television contest on ESPNU against Northern Kentucky on Friday night. Tipoff is slated for 9 p.m. inside the Nutter Center. The Raiders (17-4 overall, 7-1 HL) have won 10 of their last 11 games at home and are undefeated in Horizon League play inside the Nutter Center. Northern Kentucky will come to town 14-6 overall and with a 6-2 Horizon League record while on a five-game winning streak.

Friday night will also be a Green Out, with the first 4,000 fans receiving t-shirts and the first 3,000 fans receiving glowsticks. Tyler’s Amazing Balancing Act will perform at halftime, while Raider head coach Scott Nagy will be coaching barefoot in support of Samaritan’s Feet.

Last time out, Wright State remained undefeated at home in Horizon League play with a 79-72 victory over Youngstown State last Saturday night inside the Nutter Center as three Raiders finished with double-figure scoring nights. It was a back-and-forth battle for most of the first half, as the Raiders pushed the lead to as many as eight on several occasions but could never fully pull away in the opening 20 minutes. A Youngstown State layup with 3:44 to go in the half gave the visitors their first lead at 27-26, but that lead would be gone 30 seconds later on a Cole Gentry jumper and Wright State never trailed again in the contest despite the game’s outcome hanging in the balance for the majority of the night. Loudon Love finished with a game-high 21 points, including 13 in the second half, along with nine rebounds, two blocks and a steal in his 11th double-digit scoring game of the season and his fifth contest with 20 or more points. Bill Wampler scored 10 of 16 points in the second 20 minutes, while Cole Gentry tallied 11 points.

SHOELESS SCOTT – A GOOD SAMARITAN
For the 12th consecutive year, head coach Scott Nagy and his staff will coach a game in their bare feet to raise awareness for Samaritan’s Feet, an international humanitarian organization whose mission is to put new shoes and socks on the feet of those in need. Since beginning his tenure at Wright State, Coach Nagy and the Raiders have served at three shoe distributions in the Dayton area, providing nearly 600 pairs of shoes to children and adults. The Raiders also served on an international level in 2018 in the Dominican Republic. Fans can go to www.samaritansfeet.org/CoachNagy to make a donation that will support an upcoming local shoe distribution in which the team will serve.

NORSE NOTES
Saturday will be the 37th meeting all-time between Wright State and Northern Kentucky, with the Raiders holding a 24-12 advantage in the series. The teams split the regular season series last year with the combined margin of victory just eight points, while NKU won the Horizon League Championship over the Raiders last March. The first-ever meeting came Dec. 6, 1972, a 91-87 Raider win at Northern Kentucky.

THE NORSE SIDE
NKU extended its winning streak to five straight with a dominant 75-49 victory over Cleveland State, holding CSU without a 3-point field goal, marking the first time since Nov. 15, 2009 when an opponent failed to convert a three against the Norse. NKU has been stingy on the defensive end, holding teams to 64.3 points per game, and only one opponent has scored more than 73 points against the Norse this season. The Norse have ripped off 161 steals so far, a total that ranks 26th in the nation. The team’s 8.1 steals per game also rank 60th. Offensively, the Norse are letting it rain from long range this year. The team ranks 11th in the country in 3-point field-goal attempts (541) and 21st in made threes (178). Tyler Sharpe became NKU’s 28th member of the 1,000-point club with a career-high-tying 33-point outing versus Youngstown State, his fifth 30-point showing this year. Sharpe is averaging 16.5 points per game and his 55 made threes rank 23rd in the nation.

LEADERS ON THE HORIZON
The Raiders are 7-1 to start in Horizon League play and have been dominant so far this season. In HL play, Wright State leads the league in scoring (81 ppg), rebounding (42.1 rpg), 3-point field goal percentage (41.3%) and blocks (41, 5.13 pg). Nationally, Wright State is 17th in the country in scoring offense with 80.9 points per game overall and 11th in rebounds per game at 41.4.

MID-MAJOR POLL
Wright State moved up to No. 10 in the latest CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top 25, released on Jan. 20. The ranking ties the Raiders’ highest this season (with Nov. 11 poll date), while the team has been in every weekly ranking all season after opening at No. 13 in the preseason listing.
