Several factors can cause a college head basketball coach to lose his job.

A losing season record, overall losing record at the current school, second-half of game failures, losing games in the final moments, losing to your arch-rivals, most of all a half-filled arena and no enthusiasm from the student section.

All of those factors led Oregon State University to fire head coach Craig Robinson.

Robinson finished with a an overall record of 95-105 with the Beavers. He had one season above .500 at 21-15, two .500 seasons at 18-18 and 16-16, his first and last seasons respectively. And three below .500 seasons. His first team in 2008-2009,  went on to post a 5–1 record and captured its first post-season tournament championship ever with a final series victory over the UTEP Miners in the finals of the College Basketball Invitational. He would take the Beavers to the CBI Tournament four times. But the administration frowned on the fact that Oregon State never made it to the NCAA Tournament. His teams rarely beat their arch-rivals, the Oregon Ducks during his tenure.

The 52-year-old Robinson, who stands 6’6 inches tall,  is the older brother of United States First Lady Michelle Obama. He was a forward for Princeton University in the Ivy League from 1979-1983. Robinson was a two-time Ivy League forward and led the league in field goal percentage both years. He is the fourth highest scorer in school history. He played for the legendary Pete Carril.

Cincinnati, who beat the Raiders in the first meeting earlier this year, 6-5 on April13, fell behind early as Wright State scored three runs in the first two innings, two coming in the second inning on a two-run homer by Gerald Ogrinc, to jump out to a 3-0 lead.

With Wright State starter Cody Kopilchack struggling to find the strike zone early in the second inning, junior Justin Riddell got the Bearcats on the board when he banged a 3-1 pitch over the fence in left-center field, cutting the deficit to 3-1. The home run was Riddell’s second of 2010.
