Raiders stay home and welcome in Ohio rival Youngstown State Saturday night

 

Military Appreciation Game

 

The Wright State men’s basketball team continues its homestand on Saturday night as the Raiders welcome Youngstown State to the Nutter Center for a 7 p.m. tipoff. The game is the program’s annual Military Appreciation Game and will feature an Air Force swearing-in ceremony at halftime. The Horizon League-leading Raiders are 16-4 overall and 6-1 in HL play going into the weekend, and are winners of nine of their last 10 games overall while tallying eight wins to date at home. Youngstown State is 11-8 overall and 4-2 in conference action heading into Saturday night.

PLAYIN’ PENGUINS
Saturday will be the 60th meeting all-time between Wright State and Youngstown State, with the Raiders holding a 47-12 advantage in the series.

Wright State’s first win in the series came on Jan. 28, 1978 – a 60-59 home victory.
