Live Coverage: Cleveland State Upends Wright State

January 13th, 2008
Cleveland St

DAYTON – When a team out-shoots its opponent from the field, from 3-point land and from the foul line you would expect that team to win.

Well, except if that team is the Wright State Raiders.

The visiting Cleveland State Vikings managed to steal a win 65-63 over Wright State and send 6477 fans home sad.

First the stats. Wright State 54.1 % FG (20-37), 63.6 % 3FG (7-11) and 72.7% (16-22). Cleveland State 39.7%FG(23-58), 29.4% 3FG(5-17) and 70%(14-20)

Live Coverage: Wright Stats Beats Youngstown State

January 11th, 2008

DAYTON – Hey! Wright State actually won a game by double digits as they defeated Youngstown State 66-55.

For the Raiders their only other double digit win was against Coastal Carolina in the first game of the year.

As for the Penguins it ended a three wins in four game stretch that saw them beat Slippery Rock, UIC and Loyola, while losing to Milwaukee.

By no means was this game a laugher.

Live Coverage: Butler Outlasts Valpo in HL Battle

January 5th, 2008

INDIANAPOLIS – When you get out-shot and out-rebounded it is a pretty safe bet that that you were on the losing end of a basketball game. Unless you are the Butler Bulldogs and can force a bunch of turnovers and make a mountain of foul shots.

Today Valparaiso learned it takes more than shooting and rebounding to win on the road as the Bulldogs forced a bunch of turnovers and made a ton of foul shots as Valpo lost to Butler 73-65.

Live at Dr Pepper Classic: Wright St Wins Wild Final

December 31st, 2007

CHATTANOOGA – Sometime time seems to stand still and tonight for Wright State coach Brad Brownell the game clock just seemed to be frozen as Chattanooga rained a blizzard of 3-pointers over the last 47 seconds to erase a 25 point lead and get within three points before losing the Championship game 87-82.

Dr Pepper Classic: Sights and Sounds

December 30th, 2007

-At Wright State’s walk-through today it looked like a hospital on the side-line. There were some crutches on the press table, trainer Tony Ortiz’s medical bag was sitting out on the table and injured player Gavin Horne was also sitting on the table with his ankle in an inflatable boot that was hooked up to what appeared to be a car battery. It is called a Game Ready—Accelerated Recovery Unit device that compresses a sprained ankle to force the swelling out of it.

Live at the Dr Pepper Classic: Wright State Beats Belmont in OT

December 30th, 2007
