Cleveland State continued to roll in the Horizon League Tournament, with Jeremy Montgomery leading the way with 16 points, beat Ohio rival, Wright State 73-59.

The Vikings put the game away late in the second half, as Norris Cole, their leading scorer, scored 13 points in nine minutes.

The Vikings improved to 26-7.

Wright State, if they don’t receive a postseason bid, says goodbye to four seniors who have kept the program in contention and at the top of the Horizon League, Vaughn Duggins, N’Gai Evans, Cooper Land and Troy Tabler.

The Raiders finish at 19-14.

Bridgett Williams nine-year run at Wright State ends

Wright State Director of Athletics Bob Grant had a tough decision to make earlier in the week. To retain women’s head basketball coach Bridgett Williams or not retain her. He chose the latter in not renewing her contract. It was difficult for Grant not to retain Williams. From my standpoint as a member of the media, Coach Williams was always kind and accomodating to the media, always upbeat, confident in herself, players and the program. She was also popular with the fans as well.

But in nine seasons as a head coach, her record was 109-155. The overall record the program has had over the years, but no WNIT of NCAA bids to show. One trademark her team’s always possessed was a strong show every year in the Horizon League women’s tournament.

Williams’ best season was 2004-2005 as the Raiders finished 19-11 and advanced to the championship game of the Horizon League Tournament, losing to Green Bay. The Raiders made it back to the League Finals three years later but lost to Cleveland State in 2007-08 when she was named Co-Coach of the year in the Horizon League.

Prior to joining the Raiders before the 2001-02 campaign, Williams was the head coach at Chicago State where she was named the Mid-Continent Conference Coach of the Year in 2001 when she led the Cougars to 10 wins after zero wins in her first year.

Her assistant coaching experience includes stops at UIC, Kansas State, Wisconsin, and her alma mater, Southern Illinois.

Coach Williams was a Kodak All-American selection as a senior at Southern Illinois and those accolades have allowed her to become a member of that school’s Hall of Fame as well as the Missouri Valley Conference All-Centennial Team.

Says Bob Grant, “We would like to thank Bridgett for nine years of service to Wright State. She is a consummate professional, a great person and has been a tremendous ambassador for Wright State. However, at this time, the best interests of Wright State are served by a change in coaching leadership”.
