Alstork on HL preseason team

INDIANAPOLIS — Wright State University junior Mark Alstork was chosen to the Horizon League’s Preseason Second Team as the league announced its annual men’s basketball teams and poll on Thursday.

Alstork, a 6-foot-5 guard from Thurgood Marshall High School in Dayton, led the team last season with 434 total points, averaging 12.4 points per game. He also averaged 4.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists a game in his first season with the Raiders after transferring from Ball State.

As a team, the Raiders were picked to finish fifth under first-year head coach Scott Nagy. Nagy joined WSU last March after an extremely successful 21-year stint at South Dakota State where he won more than 400 games and played in post-season tournaments the last five seasons.

The Raiders also return starters Grant Benzinger and Mark Hughes, who combined to average double figures in scoring. Wright State will open the season on Nov. 11 at Southern Illinois before coming home to host Miami (Ohio) on Nov. 15.

The preseason poll consists of votes from the head coaches, sports information directors and three media members from each school.
