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.

Wright State Raiders rebound from OSU loss with win over Division III Kenyon

 

 

The Wright State Raiders men’s basketball team open the home portion of its schedule with a win Sunday afternoon as the Raiders defeated Kenyon 80-56 at WSU’s Nutter Center.

The Lords scored the first five points of the contest before WSU answered with a 10-0 run, half of those coming from Armond Battle.  The margin was still five until an 11-1 burst over a three-minute span, including five by John Balwigaire, put Wright State up 25-10 with 7:26 remaining in the first half.  Another 10-0 run extended the lead to 19 before the Raiders went into the half up 42-24.

Both teams shot the ball well in the first half as WSU was at 41 percent compared to 40 percent for Kenyon, but the Raiders also made 12 of 16 foul shots while the Lords were just three of 10 from the stripe.

Wright State eventually pushed the lead to as much as 71-41 with 6:53 remaining before coasting to the victory.

The Raiders shot 44 percent for the game, 46 percent in the second half, and were 23 of 29 at the free throw line, 11 of 13 the final 20 minutes.  Kenyon, meanwhile, shot 41 percent on the night, including 11 of 22 from three-point range, but was just nine of 19 at the line.

Wright State led 32-12 in points in the paint and 29-3 in points off of turnovers as the Raiders forced 22 turnovers while committing only 11.

Tavares Sledge paced WSU with 16 points off the bench, 12 in the second half, and had eight rebounds while Balwigaire had 14 and Kendall Griffin and Battle 11 each.  Overall, the Raider reserves outscored the Kenyon bench 50-37.

WRIGHT STATE AT OHIO STATE: men’s basketball kicks off regular season against in-state rival

 

Julius Mays talks with media at Monday's Wright State basketball media day (megasportsnews.com)

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.
