Horizon League-leading Raiders hold off upset-minded Milwaukee with road win, 65-61

The Wright State men’s basketball team gutted out a 65-61 road victory on Friday night at Milwaukee, despite scoring just 26 first half points and shooting 39 percent for the game. The Raiders closed the night out with nine of the final 13 points over the last 3:15 to close out the victory.

Wright State (19-4, 9-1 Horizon) now continues on its Wisconsin weekend road trip and will take on Green Bay on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET. Green Bay is now 10-13 overall (5-5 HL) after a Friday night home loss to Northern Kentucky.

Both Wright State and Milwaukee struggled from the floor in the first 20 minutes, with both sides shooting 33 percent in the opening half as the Raiders overcame a slow start to take a 26-19 lead into the locker room. The Raiders came out of the break quickly, scoring the first four points of the second half as they pushed the lead up to between nine and 11 points over the first eight minutes of the second half.

Milwaukee responded, going on a scoring run centered around the 8:57 mark, when Loudon Love got tangled up with the Panthers’ Courtney Brown, Jr. After review, Love was handed a flagrant 2 technical foul, and Milwaukee rolled off 10 of the next 12 points to take a two-point lead at 47-45 with 6:44 remaining.

Tied at 57-all with 3:15 remaining after a pair of Bill Wampler free throws, Wright State closed the night on an 8-4 run, using a 6-for-8 mark at the free throw line over that closing stretch to grab the win.

The Raiders saw three players finish with double-digit scoring nights, led by Wampler’s game-high 19 points, 12 of which came in the second half, to go along with seven rebounds. Tanner Holden scored 11 of his 16 points over the final 20 minutes, including a 7-of-8 mark at the free throw line. Love recorded the night’s only double-double, finishing with 16 points and 13 rebounds while adding a block, steal and an assist.

After the 33 percent shooting in the first half, Wright State finished the night at the 39 percent (22-of-56) rate and Milwaukee was at 41 percent (25-of-61) as the teams combined for five made three-point baskets (Wright State: 2-11 / Milwaukee: 3-20). The difference came at the free throw line, as the Raiders made 26 trips to the stripe and connected on 19 (73 percent), while the Panthers made just 10 trips to the line overall (8-10, 80 percent).



In battle of Horizon League’s top two teams, Wright State blows out Northern Kentucky with hot shooting and defense in Saturday night action

The Wright State men’s basketball team led for all but the opening 17 seconds on the way to a 95-63 home victory over Northern Kentucky in front of over 6,200 fans inside the Nutter Center and across the country on ESPNU.

The Raiders (18-4 overall, 8-1 Horizon) shot 61 percent from the floor as a team and connected at a 55 percent clip from three-point range for the night while holding Northern Kentucky (14-7 overall, 6-3 HL) to just 31 percent shooting in the first half and a final mark of 39 percent from the floor.

The 32-point final margin of victory was Wright State’s third-largest of all-time against Northern Kentucky and just the fifth win of 20-plus points in the series. Each of the four other instances came prior to 1981 during the Raiders’ NCAA Division II-era.

A season-high six Wright State players scored in double figures, combining to score 93 of the Raiders’ 95 points, led by double-doubles from Tanner Holden and Loudon Love. Holden tallied game-highs with his 20 points and 13 rebounds, while Love recorded 16 points and 11 rebounds of his own as the only two players with double-digit rebounding efforts. The efforts were the eighth double-double of the season for Love and the fourth for Holden in his freshman campaign.

Bill Wampler was 7-of-9 from the floor on the way to a 19-point night, while Jaylon Hall (6-of-8) tallied 15 points. Trey Calvin hit four three-pointers to record his 12 points and Cole Gentry finished with 11 of his own. Grant Basile (2 points on 1-of-2 shooting) was the only other Raider in the scoring column.

The Raiders erased any thought of a Northern Kentucky comeback right out of the halftime break, opening the final 20 minutes on an 11-3 run to push out to a 28-point advantage as their hot shooting carried throughout the night.

Wright State won nearly every statistical team category, outrebounding Northern Kentucky 43-28 while tallying 20 assists and 19 second-chance points. The Raiders recorded 40 points inside the paint and had 17 points off of nine Northern Kentucky turnovers.
