One of the newest recruits for the Wright State basketball team during the off-season, has been 6’7 freshman Steven Davis from Indianapolis Manual High School.

Davis verbally committed to the Raiders in August but nothing had been announced in the media of his signing and he was not included in the basketball section of the website or in basketball publications around the country.

Head coach Billy Donlon said through news reports that he has signed his letter of intent and is taking classes and a member of the team for this season.

Donlon will use Davis all over the floor in multiple positions.

In other Raider news:

* Coach Donlon has moved Director of basketball operations Brendan Mullins down on the floor to assistant coach to take the place of Clayton Bates, who left to go to Western Michigan a few days ago.

Demmings (Richmond, IN/Richmond) scored 38 points with 18 rebounds and 12 assists in two Raider wins last week.  In a 71-66 overtime decision at Youngstown State on January 28, Demmings nearly posted a triple-double as she had 25 points along with season highs in rebounds (14) and assists (nine).  She scored the first 10 WSU points in overtime, including a decisive three-point play with 50.4 seconds remaining.

It was the second overtime win of the season for Wright State, the other coming at home against Milwaukee on January 14, and was the first overtime win away from home for the program since defeating Milwaukee 93-91 in double overtime on February 10, 1994, breaking a 10-game losing streak in such contests.

On January 26 at Cleveland State, Demmings had 13 points, four rebounds and three assists as the Raiders won 64-54.

Demmings, who has scored in double figures in every Horizon League game and has scored at least eight points in all but one contest the entire year, currently ranks third in the league in scoring average (16.8), third in assists per game (4.1), 14th in free throw percentage (710) and 15th in rebounds per game (6.0).  In league games only, Demmings is second in scoring (18.8), tied for third in assists (4.7), seventh in defensive rebounds (5.7) and 11th in rebounds overall (7.1).

Bengals lose to Baltimore; make AFC playoffs as sixth seed with Clements as key figure

Eventhough the Cincinnati Bengals lost their final game to the Baltimore Ravens, the team still will be amongst the top 6 in the AFC Playoffs next weekend as the sixth seed.

The Bengals received help on Sunday when the Jets, Raiders and Broncos all lost but they earned the wildcard spot in a head-to-head tiebreaker over the Tennessee Titans, the only other AFC team with that same record of 9-7. The Bengals beat the Titans at Tennessee in November, 24-17. That’s why every game in the NFL is important.

They’ll be traveling to Houston to play the 10-6 Texans who they lost two three weeks ago in the final seconds.

Bengals QB Andy Dalton, who is from the Houston area, is 3-0 in Reliant Stadium home of the Texans. He played there during his college career at TCU.

Cincinnati defied all the odds playing with a rookie QB and won 9 games even after trading away veteran signal-caller Carson Palmer to the Oakland Raiders.

One of the reasons the Bengals made the playoffs was the play of former Ohio State defensive back Nate Clements, who they signed in the off-season to release Johnathan Joseph who bolted for Houston after the team had a losing season in 2010.

The 32-year-old native of the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights, had never made the playoffs as his career has taken him to Buffalo and San Francisco after being drafted in the first round at #21 by the Bills in 2001.

Clements felt the Bengals, even being a young team had a chance at the playoffs and he was right.

The 2011 free agent signee who has been a standout player in the Cincinnati secondary this season, missed only one game with a hamstring injury he suffered in practice on December 1.

After sitting out the December 4 Pittsburgh game, he has been back at the Left cornerback spot the past three games against Houston, St. Louis and Arizona.

Clements was not fully healed for the December 11 game vs. the Texans, and he had just one tackle in very limited action. But returned to his big-play capabilities on December 18 at St. Louis, and also on December 24 vs. Arizona.

Clements has made big plays all season:

* On October 16 against Indianapolis, he blocked a 52-yard FG attempt by Adam Vinatieri with 5;43 to play. Also in the opening quarter of the game, he forced a fumble by Colts TE Dallas Clark.

* On October 30 at Seattle, Clements stopped a two-point try by stripping the ball from WR Ben Obomanu in the end zone.

* On November 6 at Tennessee with under four minutes to play, and the Bengals up 21-17, Clements separated TE Jared Cook from the ball and recovered it at the Titans 20. From there, the Bengals scored a field goal for the final margin of 24-17.

* On November 27 vs. Cleveland, with the score 20-20, Clements ripped the ball away from WR Greg Little for an incompletion which would’ve given the Browns a first down. It forced the Browns to kick a 55-yard field goal which missed and the Bengals started their game-winning drive on their 45-yard line.

* On December 18 at St. Louis, Clements was responsible for making four, huge third down plays that caused the Rams to punt on three of them and kick a field goal on another.

* On December 24, against Arizona, his second-quarter interception against John Skelton set up the Bengals TD drive for a 17-0 lead.

With Right cornerback Leon Hall going down with an injury a few games ago, the free agent signing of Clements has been huge for Cincinnati’s defense.

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.
