Wright State wins close affair at tough Millett Hall, 51-49

 

The Wright State men’s basketball team nearly saw a five-point lead slip away in the final minute, but held on for a 51-49 win over the Miami RedHawks Saturday at Millett Hall.

The Raiders rebounded from a tough loss at Air Force to win at one of the toughest basketball arenas to play in.

Miami jumped out to a 9-1 lead on threes by Julian Mavunga, Will Sullivan and Josh Sewell three minutes into the contest and the margin was seven until an 8-0 WSU run, capped off by a Reggie Arceneaux three, put the Raiders up for the first time at 16-15 at the 4:27 mark.

The one-point lead then seesawed between the two teams the rest of the half before the RedHawks went into the break up 22-21 on a Mavunga dunk in the final minute.

Cole Darling led WSU with 13 points

Back-to-back Cole Darling three put Wright State up 29-25 with 16:29 remaining and the lead grew to 34-27 on an Arceneaux three-point play at the 14:44 mark.

Miami tied it at 37 on a Mavunga free throw with 8:13 left, but Armond Battle gave the Raiders the lead for good with a three and the WSU lead was 50-45 on two Julius Mays foul shots with 56 seconds remaining.

Jon Harris, however, cut the margin to two with a three-pointer and the RedHawks looked to be in position to tie the game as Mavunga went to the foul line with 2.1 seconds left.

Mavunga made the first, but missed the second and after Battle gathered in the rebound, he hit the first of two free throws at the 0.5-second mark.  Battle intentionally missed the second and Miami missed a desperation shot as time expired.

WSU shot 34 percent for the game compared to 30 percent for the RedHawks.

Darling was the only Raider in double figures as he scored 13 off the bench.  Arceneaux and Mays each had eight.

Mavunga led Miami (2-5) with a double-double of 19 points and 16 rebounds while Harris had 10 off the bench.

Wright State (4-6) faces another local rival on Wednesday, December 14, as the Raiders host Cincinnati in a 7:00 contest that will be televised on ESPN2.

Wright State’s cold-shooting dooms team in loss at Air Force

The men’s basketball team found the offense hard to come by Wednesday night as the Raiders dropped a 55-34 decision at Air Force.

WSU trailed just 3-2 following a Cole Darling jumper, but the Falcons followed with a 15-0 run over the next 7:30 to take control.  The two teams played nearly even the rest of the period as Air Force led 27-13 at the break.

The Raiders hit five of 27 shots in the opening 20 minutes, including one of 10 from three-point range, while the Falcons made 10 of 21 attempts for 48 percent overall and were five of 11 from behind the arc.

Wright State loses league opener to Cleveland State

 

D’Aundray Brown converted a tip-in with .3 seconds left as Cleveland State defeated Wright State 45-43 in the Horizon League opener for both teams Thursday at WSU’s Nutter Center.

The Vikings led 16-8 at the 12:13 mark of the first half thanks to a 12-2 run, only to see the Raiders close out the period with a 13-5 burst, capped off by a Cole Darling three to tie the game at 21 heading into halftime.

Neither team had more than a four-point lead during the second half and there were five ties and seven lead changes until two Vance Hall foul shots gave Wright State a 42-41 edge with 1:52 remaining.  A Jeremy Montgomery jumper in the paint put the Vikings up one before Darling hit the second of two free throws to tie it at 43 at the 1:06 mark.

After a Cleveland State missed three and a Raider turnover, CSU had the final shot with 27 seconds left.  Montgomery missed a jumper, but Brown was there for the tip-in to give the Vikings the victory.

The final shooting percentages were nearly identical as Wright State shot 41 percent to Cleveland State’s 40 percent, but the Vikings were five of 17 from three-point range and eight of nine at the foul line compared to two of nine from behind the arc and nine of 14 from the stripe for the Raiders.  CSU also held a 12-4 edge in second-chance points thanks to a 10-6 advantage in offensive rebounds.

AJ Pacher led Wright State with nine points while Darling had eight and Matt Vest and Reggie Arceneaux seven each.

Tim Kamczyc paced Cleveland State (7-1, 1-0 Horizon) with 12 points and seven rebounds while Montgomery had nine points and Brown eight.

Wright State is 2-5 overall, 0-1 in the Horizon League.

Charlotte defeats Wright State, 70-66 despite Mays’ 25 points

The men’s basketball team couldn’t quite get over the hump as they dropped a 70-66 decision to Charlotte Saturday night at WSU’s Nutter Center.

Charlotte scored the first seven points of the contest and the 49ers looked to be in control as two Chris Braswell foul shots increased the margin to 21-9 with 7:04 remaining in the first half.

WSU, however, stormed back with 10 straight points, including threes from AJ Pacher and John Balwigaire and the Raiders closed to within one on a Julius Mays triple before heading into halftime down just 28-26.

Wright State shot just 32 percent from the field in the first half compared to 46 percent for Charlotte, but the Raiders hit six of 12 from three-point range while the 49ers were only two of nine.

WSU trailed by just two on three different occasions in the first three minutes of the second half, but Charlotte maintained the advantage each time and eventually went up 43-33 following a E. Victor Nickerson basket with 12:45 to play.

The margin was 58-49 at the 7:15 mark, but again the Raiders mounted a comeback, tallying seven unanswered points to again make it a two-point game.

Again, however, Charlotte was able to keep the lead and maintain it the rest of the way despite the Raiders cutting the deficit to two on two more occasions down the stretch.

The 49ers continued their hot shooting into the second half as they made 14 of 21 attempts to finish the night at 56 percent overall while Wright State was at 37 percent.  It ultimately came down to free throws as Charlotte was 17 of 24 while WSU was 13 of 20, including nine of 15 in the second half.

For the third straight game, Mays led the way for the Raiders with 25 points, 17 of those coming after halftime.  He finished the week with 61 points (21 vs. Florida, 15 at North Florida) in three contests after scoring just eight points over the first three games of the season.  Mays also paced WSU with five rebounds.

Cole Darling chipped in 12 for Wright State, but no other Raider had more than seven.

Braswell paced Charlotte (3-2) with 22 points while DeMario Mayfield had 14 and Jamar Briscoe 13.

Wright State with the loss drops to 2-4.

Raiders pull away from Jackson State in second half

 

After struggling in the first half, the offense came alive in the second as the Wright State men’s basketball team defeated Jackson State 56-39 Wednesday night at WSU’s Nutter Center.

Both teams found the scoring hard to come by in the opening 20 minutes as Cole Darling’s layup at the 11:07 mark made it a 3-2 Jackson State lead.  The Tigers maintained a slight edge for most of the rest of the period until jumpers by Kendall Griffin and Reggie Arceneaux in the final minute gave the Raiders a 17-14 halftime advantage.

After hitting just one of its first 18 shots, Wright State made six of its final eight in the first half to shoot 27 percent while Jackson State was three of 17 for 18 percent.

WSU then started the second half with a 20-8 run, nine of those coming on three three-pointers by Arceneaux, to go up 37-22 with nine minutes to play.  The Tigers would get no closer than eight the rest of the way as the Raiders closed the game with an 11-2 burst over the final two minutes.

Wright State shot 36 percent in the second half to finish at 31 percent overall while Jackson State was at 26 percent.  WSU went 18 of 26 at the foul line compared to 15 of 21 for the Tigers and led 13-3 in points off of turnovers as the Raiders forced 21 while committing 13.

Arceneaux led Wright State with 15 points, 11 coming in the second half, while Armond Battle had 10, all after halftime.  Darling had nine points and nine rebounds in his first action of the year and John Balwigaire chipped in nine off the bench.

Jenirro Bush paced Jackson State (0-3) with 15 points, but no other Tiger had more than five.

Wright State (2-1), now 1-1 in the Global Sports Shootout, wraps up tournament play with a pair of games in the Sunshine State next week.  On Monday, November 21, WSU faces Florida in a 7:00 matchup at the St. Pete Times Forum, a game that can be seen live on Fox Sports Florida.  The Raiders then head to Jacksonville to take on North Florida on Wednesday, November 23, also at 7:00.
