COLLEGE


Raiders fend off Bowling Green


FAIRBORN — The Wright State men’s basketball team led by as much as 14 in the second half, but had to hold off a Bowling Green rally in the final minutes before defeating the Falcons 46-43 Sunday afternoon at WSU’s Nutter Center.


The Falcons shot 53 percent in the second half to end up at 44 percent overall compared to 37 percent for WSU. The Raiders also missed all 13 of their three-point attempts, marking the first time that Wright State had not made a three in a game since going 0 for 8 on February 2, 2006 against Milwaukee.


The Raiders, though, had 10 more field goal attempts thanks in part to forcing 21 turnovers while committing 13 and collecting 11 offensive rebounds and went 10 of 17 at the foul line while Bowling Green was seven of 14.


Pacher had a near double-double of 14 points and nine rebounds to lead the way for WSU while Dixon had 13 off the bench.


Holmes paced Bowling Green (6-6) with a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds while Spencer Parker had 11.


Wright State (8-7) opens Horizon League play at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 2, as the Raiders welcome in league newcomer Oakland.


Wright State women pull away from Chicago State


CHICAGO — Up just four at the half, the Wright State women’s basketball team exploded for 48 points the final 20 minutes in pulling away for an 84-62 win, Sunday at Chicago State.


Both teams shot the ball well in the second half as the Raiders hit for 49 percent while the Cougars were at 55 percent. Wright State, though, finished with 28 more attempts for the contest thanks to a 44-36 rebounding edge, including 20-8 on the offensive end, and by forcing 28 turnovers while committing 12. WSU led 35-11 in points off of turnovers and 25-3 in second-chance points.


The Raiders came one point shy of having all five starters score in double figures as Demmings led the way with 21 points and added seven steals while James had a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds, Tayler Stanton and Tay’ler Mingo 10 points each and Elkins had nine points. Mingo dished out seven assists.
