With its 106-66 win over IUPUI on Feb. 16, the Wright State men’s basketball team secured a double-bye to Indianapolis and the semifinals of the 2020 Horizon League Championship. The Raiders, who can finish no lower than second in the regular season standings, will automatically play in one of the semifinal contests on Monday night, March 9 at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

The top two men’s and women’s teams in the regular season standings will earn their spots in the semifinals. The championship game will be played the following night, Tuesday, March 10. The remaining eligible teams will play in opening round and quarterfinal round games at campus sites on March 3 and 5 to round out the field that will play in Indianapolis.

This season will be the first at the new venue for the championships, as the event moves to Indianapolis and the Indiana Farmers Coliseum, located at the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Events Center. The venue, which seats 6,800, is exactly two hours from the Wright State campus, while eight of ten schools are within five hours of Indianapolis.

Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com or by calling the Indiana Farmers Coliseum box office at 317-927-7601.

Both Monday’s semifinals and Tuesday’s championship will have two sessions – one session for women in the afternoon, and one session for men in the evening. There are a total of four sessions. Men’s games will be ticketed as both Reserved and General Admission while women’s games will be ticketed as General Admission only. Reserved seating is available for single sessions only. General Admission seating is available for both single-sessions and all-sessions.

The home and visiting team benches and cheering sections will be determined based on the final regular season standings. As the #1 or #2 seed, Wright State is guaranteed to be the home team on Monday. To sit with other Raider fans, we suggest you purchase Reserved seats in section 100 or 101, or sit directly behind those areas in General Admission seating. If Wright State advances to the championship on Tuesday, the Raider fan section will be determined by which team is the higher seed. If we’re the higher seeded team, our fan section will be section 101. If we are the lower seeded team, it will be section 117.

The Wright State women’s team is currently tied for second place with three games remaining. More information on the women’s side regarding venue and tickets will be released once their final seeding is known.

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).
