Wright State holds off Youngstown State, 63-62

An Armond Battle free throw with 1.4 seconds left proved to be the difference as the Wright State men’s basketball team defeated Youngstown State 63-62 Saturday at WSU’s Nutter Center.

It was all Youngstown State in the early going as the Penguins used a 19-3 run to take a 30-13 lead with 7:14 remaining in the first half.  WSU, however, stormed back with an 18-5 run of its own, seven coming from both Julius Mays and Battle, to cut the deficit to four before the Penguins took a 38-32 lead into halftime.

Youngstown State shot 52 percent from the field in the opening 20 minutes, including nine of 15 from three, but the Raiders also shot well at 46 percent altogether and three of six from behind the arc.  WSU was also nine of 12 at the foul line compared to three of five for the Penguins.

Mays put Wright State up 42-41 with a layup at the 14:24 mark of the second half and neither team had more than a four-point edge until a driving layup from Battle followed by an AJ Pacher three gave the Raiders a 62-57 lead with 2:45 to play.

Back came the Penguins, though, as two Kendrick Perry foul shots and a Blake Allen three tied the game for the 11th time at 62 with 1:32 left.

That set the stage for Battle as he was fouled on a drive to the basket with 1.4 seconds left.  He made the first, but missed the second.  After a timeout with one second left, the Penguins had one last chance, but a shot by Damian Eargle went off the back of the rim as time expired.

Wright State hit 12 of 23 shots in the second half for 52 percent as the Raiders ended the game at 49 percent overall, while YSU made just seven of 25 shots the final 20 minutes to end up at 40 percent.  WSU also led 30-2 in points in the paint.

Mays led the Raiders with 19 points, 12 coming in the second half, while Pacher had a career-high 16 points and Battle tied a career high with 13 off the bench.

DuShawn Brooks paced Youngstown State (5-2, 1-1 Horizon) with 17 points while Allen had 15 and Eargle 10.

Wright State improves to 3-5, 0-2 in the Horizon League.

D’Aundray Brown converted a tip-in with .3 seconds left as Cleveland State defeated Wright State 45-43 in the Horizon League opener for both teams Thursday at WSU’s Nutter Center.

The Vikings led 16-8 at the 12:13 mark of the first half thanks to a 12-2 run, only to see the Raiders close out the period with a 13-5 burst, capped off by a Cole Darling three to tie the game at 21 heading into halftime.

Neither team had more than a four-point lead during the second half and there were five ties and seven lead changes until two Vance Hall foul shots gave Wright State a 42-41 edge with 1:52 remaining.  A Jeremy Montgomery jumper in the paint put the Vikings up one before Darling hit the second of two free throws to tie it at 43 at the 1:06 mark.

After a Cleveland State missed three and a Raider turnover, CSU had the final shot with 27 seconds left.  Montgomery missed a jumper, but Brown was there for the tip-in to give the Vikings the victory.

The final shooting percentages were nearly identical as Wright State shot 41 percent to Cleveland State’s 40 percent, but the Vikings were five of 17 from three-point range and eight of nine at the foul line compared to two of nine from behind the arc and nine of 14 from the stripe for the Raiders.  CSU also held a 12-4 edge in second-chance points thanks to a 10-6 advantage in offensive rebounds.

AJ Pacher led Wright State with nine points while Darling had eight and Matt Vest and Reggie Arceneaux seven each.

Tim Kamczyc paced Cleveland State (7-1, 1-0 Horizon) with 12 points and seven rebounds while Montgomery had nine points and Brown eight.

Charlotte defeats Wright State, 70-66 despite Mays’ 25 points

The men’s basketball team couldn’t quite get over the hump as they dropped a 70-66 decision to Charlotte Saturday night at WSU’s Nutter Center.

Charlotte scored the first seven points of the contest and the 49ers looked to be in control as two Chris Braswell foul shots increased the margin to 21-9 with 7:04 remaining in the first half.

WSU, however, stormed back with 10 straight points, including threes from AJ Pacher and John Balwigaire and the Raiders closed to within one on a Julius Mays triple before heading into halftime down just 28-26.

Wright State shot just 32 percent from the field in the first half compared to 46 percent for Charlotte, but the Raiders hit six of 12 from three-point range while the 49ers were only two of nine.

WSU trailed by just two on three different occasions in the first three minutes of the second half, but Charlotte maintained the advantage each time and eventually went up 43-33 following a E. Victor Nickerson basket with 12:45 to play.

The margin was 58-49 at the 7:15 mark, but again the Raiders mounted a comeback, tallying seven unanswered points to again make it a two-point game.

Again, however, Charlotte was able to keep the lead and maintain it the rest of the way despite the Raiders cutting the deficit to two on two more occasions down the stretch.

The 49ers continued their hot shooting into the second half as they made 14 of 21 attempts to finish the night at 56 percent overall while Wright State was at 37 percent.  It ultimately came down to free throws as Charlotte was 17 of 24 while WSU was 13 of 20, including nine of 15 in the second half.

For the third straight game, Mays led the way for the Raiders with 25 points, 17 of those coming after halftime.  He finished the week with 61 points (21 vs. Florida, 15 at North Florida) in three contests after scoring just eight points over the first three games of the season.  Mays also paced WSU with five rebounds.

Cole Darling chipped in 12 for Wright State, but no other Raider had more than seven.

Braswell paced Charlotte (3-2) with 22 points while DeMario Mayfield had 14 and Jamar Briscoe 13.

Wright State with the loss drops to 2-4.

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.

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.

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.
