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.

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.
