Wright State men’s basketball adds final piece for 2012-13: 6’6 Forward Jerran Young

 

The Wright State Raiders had waited for awhile for the final piece for 2012-13 to become official.

This past Friday, it all came together with the signing of 6-foot-6, 190-pound forward Jerran Young. Young is from McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas.

Young had verbally committed to Wright State back in April, but he had to finish summer classes before enrolling at the Fairborn, Ohio school.

Wright State was not the first choice of Young, a graduate of Cedar Hill High School in Texas. He played two seasons at McLennan. He originally committed to the University of Nebraska of the Big Ten, but when the Huskers changed coach’s, Young was released from his commitment.

Young is a winner having played on a state championship runner-up team in 2009 at Cedar Hill and was selected district defensive player of the year. He averaged 10 points, with 8 rebounds and 10 assists during his senior year in high school.

At McLennan as a freshman, his totals included 10.5 points, with 1.5 steals a game. In 2011-12, his totals improved to 16 points and 8 rebounds.

NCAA TOURNAMENT: South Regional, Elite 8 Sunday Results

compiled from staff and news reports

With the Duke Blue Devils not reaching the Final Four since 2004, the loyal fan base were getting restless but coach Mike Krzyzewski says all the fuss didn’t bother him.

But don’t look now, Coach K has his team on the cusp of one win away from the national championship game.

Duke received a career-high 29 points from Nolan Smith in a 78-71 win over the Baylor Bears in Houston, Texas  that put Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils back into college basketball’s biggest stage, the Final Four.

Jon Scheyer added five 3-point baskets and scored 20 points for Duke, ending  local favorite Baylor’s dream run in the South Regional final.  The Blue Devils became this year’s only number 1 seed to advance to Indianapolis and earned their 11th Final Four berth under Coach K.

LaceDarius Dunn had 22 points and Epke Udoh scored 18 for the third-seeded Bears who end the season at 28-8. The Baylor program was in shambles and   under scrutiny when head coach Scott Drew took over in the wake of  scandal and murder almost seven years ago.

Drew took the Bears from the outhouse to the brink of their first Final Four appearance in 60 years.  After three consecutive 20-win seasons and an unexpected postseason run which now has the public recognizing it is a solid program and tragedy of the summer of 2003 can be put to rest for good.

Scott Drew was 32 years old when he was hired and had only been a head coach for just one season,winning 20 games at Valparaiso while his Dad, Homer Drew was on a sabbatical. Scott prior to that spent nine years as his Dad’s assistant. He had to rebuild his program in the always tough Big 12 Conference with a reduction in scholarships and a roster torn-apart by the transfers of the top three scorers after that tragic summer in 2003 when Patrick Dennehy was shot to death by a teammate.

Baylor made it to the NCAA tournament two years ago, when it lost in the first round to Purdue, and to the NIT championship game last April.

The Bears, from Waco, Texas, were picked 10th in the preseason poll by the Big 12 coaches at the beginning of this season after losing three 1,000-point scorers to graduation.  But they were the last Big 12 team still playing.

By beating Baylor, the Blue Devils will play East Regional champion West Virginia in the national semifinals Saturday night.  They have won 11 of their last 12 regional finals under Coach K, but haven’t won a national title since 2001.

Mike Krzyzewski made his first Final four with the Blue Devils in 1986 and hadn’t had a gap this long between trips to the biggest stage in college basketball.

Duke ended the Final Four drought at Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans, only 3 1/2 hours from Baylor University’s campus in Waco.  Most of the crowd of 47,492 were dressed in green and gold colors of the Bears and had an impact on keeping Baylor in the game through the end.
