Wright State sweeps 5-game homestand with blowout win over Youngstown State Penguins; Senior Day a success

GAME RECAP WRITTEN BY & COURTESY OF WRIGHT STATE ATHLETICS

 

 

The Wright State men’s basketball team took care of business on Senior Day Saturday afternoon as they defeated Youngstown State 82-54 at the WSU Nutter Center, clinching a home game in the quarterfinals of the Horizon League Tournament on March 5.  The Raiders are now 18-11, 12-4 and have won six straight games and 10 of the last 11.  It also marked the fourth straight game scoring 81 or more points.  YSU drops to 12-18, 8-9.

Loudon Love led the way with his career-high 26 points while Youngstown, OH native Mark Hughes ended with four threes for 14 points, and Cole Gentry pitched in 12 points.  Freshman Malachi Smith continued his strong contributions with seven rebounds and seven assists with three steals.  WSU shot 49% from the field overall but connected at a 58% rate in the first half.

First Half
Youngstown State controlled the tip and scored first, but the Raider stormed back and never looked back.  WSU took the lead 5-4 at 18:40 and did not trail again, leading as much as 25 points with 43 seconds remaining.  The Raiders went to the locker room ahead 49-27, led by Hughes 12 points and Love’s 11.  Hughes hit four three pointers in the first 20 minutes but WSU was active inside as well with 18 points coming in the paint.  YSU had nine turnovers with WSU scoring 12 points as a result.

Second Half
The second period was much of the same but the Penguins did cut the WSU’s lead to 17 at 13:14.  The Raiders pressed the gas once again, going up by 30 with five minutes to go and finished the game with an 82-54 decision.  Love scored 15 points in the final 20 minutes as the Raiders shot 40% from the field.  Every Raider player scored in the game as James Manns came off the bench for five points late.  Wright State once again scored 18 points inside.

Nagy Said
“The last three games, we’ve shot the ball well.  If we shoot it well, it opens things up for Loudon and that showed tonight.  Shooting well makes us hard to guard.”

Next Up
The Raiders hit the road to play at Green Bay Thursday night and at Milwaukee Saturday night to end the regular season.
