The Wright State Raiders will be taking that short drive of 60 miles from Fairborn, Ohio to Columbus where they’ll take on the Ohio State Buckeyes tonight at 9:00 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.

Yearly, the Raiders are one of the top teams in the mid-major Horizon League along with Butler, Detroit, Cleveland State and Wisconsin-Milwaukee. But after losing four seniors who led them over the years, N’Gai Evans, Vaughn Duggins, Cooper Land and Troy Tabler, the Raiders are picked seventh this season.

Wright State spent part of the summer touring Italy and are hoping that trip bonded all of the new players they’ll have on the roster. The newcomers include: Brooklyn Bradley, Reggie Arceneaux, John Balwigaire, Jason Cuffee, Kendall Griffin, Ulysses Thomas, Vance Hall, Stephen Gossard, Alex Pritchett, Julius Mays and Tavares Sledge.

The Raiders non-conference schedule will include Kenyon, Jackson State, Florida, North Florida, Charlotte, Air Force, Miami, Cincinnati, Ohio, Idaho, Central Michigan and the annual BracketBusters game.

Miami RedHawks head basketball coach Charlie Coles and Todd Lickliter have been lifelong friends and Coles has always admired his coaching abilities.

It’s no real surprise that Coles has hired the former Iowa boss as his newest assistant coach at the Oxford, Ohio school.

Lickliter was let go by the Hawkeyes in the spring of 2010 after three straight losing seasons. He  previously spent six seasons at Butler, leading the Bulldogs to a pair of trips to the NCAA Tournament’s round of 16.

His head coaching record is 169-116.

The 56-year-old Lickliter played guard at Central Florida Community College and Butler.

The 2010-2011 Dispatch Men’s Ohio College Basketball Coach of the Year came down to Ohio State head coach Thad Matta and Wooster College head coach Steve Moore.

Tough choice considering both coaches and both programs did extremely well.

Matta’s Buckeyes only lost three games all year (Purdue, Wisconsin & Kentucky) and were ranked number 1 for 9o percent of the season.

Moore’s Fighting Scots are always one of the top men’s program’s in NCAA Division III. They won the North Coast Athletic Conference and advanced to the Division III championship game and lost to St. Thomas of Minnesota.

But the winner is….Matta!

Matta has won the award for the fifth time since 2004 for leading the Buckeyes to a 34-3 record and the Big Ten regular season and postseason conference titles.

Moore finished second, followed by Jon VanderWal of Marietta third, Gary Waters of Cleveland State fourth and Walsh College’s Jeff Young fifth.

Matta in just seven years at OSU, has won 190 games, four Big Ten regular-season championships, three conference tournament titles and one national championship runner-up awards.

Matta, a Butler basketball player and graduate, has come a very long way from Hoopeston, Illinois, a town of about 6,000 people near the Indiana border town of Danville, Illinois.

Wisconsin men’s basketball coach Bo Ryan has received a contract extension that will run through the 2015-2016 season.

Ryan finished his 10th season with the Badgers in March, reaching the regional semifinalist before losing to Butler and finishing 25-9. Ryan’s teams have made the NCAA tournament every year he’s been at Wisconsin and he is 625-194 in his 27-year career. With the Badgers, he is 242-91 overall.

Ryan loves the state of Wisconsin. The 63-year-old spent two years at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and in 15 years at NCAA Division III Wisconsin-Platteville, he had two undefeated teams and won four NCAA championships.
