Wright State (19-13) will now take on #3 seeded Cleveland State (25-7), a 73-61 winner over Illinois-Chicago. The second round contest will take place on Friday at 6:00 pm at U.S. Cellular Arena in Milwaukee.


* The win over UIC on February 5, was WSU’s 100th since the start of the Brownell/Donlan era 4-plus years ago, giving them at least an average of 20 wins a year.

* With 10 wins in the Horizon League, WSU clinched its fifth straight season it has recorded double-digit wins in the league.

* The four Wright State seniors have seen the number 100 several times this year in games played. The Southern game was Vaughn Duggins’ 100th game in a Raider uniform. The Cincinnati game was his 100th start. Troy Tabler played in his 100th game at Central Michigan. Cooper Land’s 100th game was at Charlotte. N’Gai Evans played in his 100th game at Green Bay.

* The series is tied 22-22, but Wright State leads 17-5 in the Nutter Center.

* The Green Bay frontline of Alec Brown and Daniel Turner have had freshman seasons among the best in the program history. Brown’s 311 points this season are the most by a Phoenix freshman since Mike Schachtner’s 320 in 2005-06, and his 174 rebounds rank third all-time among freshman while Turner’s 168 boards rank sixth.

* Senior Rahmon Fletcher is winding down one of the best individual careers in Green Bay history. He recently moved into fifth place on the school’s all-time scoring list. He now has 1,674 career points, to pass former teammate Mike Schactner (2006-09).

* Rahmon Fletcher has played in his 128th career game and 123rd career start. The 128th career game is the third-most played by a Green Bay player, behind only Troy Cotton and Terry Evans with 131.

* Fellow Phoenix senior Bryquis Perine played in his 127th career game, which is fourth all-time.

* The 155 career games by Fletcher and Perine are more than any other Green Bay duo that played in the same four-season period and more than any active Horizon League duo.
