Wright State to offer Ralph Underhill bobbleheads

FAIRBORN — The 2015-16 Wright State basketball season will have a distinct “throwback” feel throughout the campaign to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Wright State University Nutter Center.

As one of the crucial people in setting the solid foundation for Wright State basketball at the Division I level, including the building of the Nutter Center, Wright State will be recognizing Coach Ralph Underhill with a special Coach Underhill Bobblehead Night this season.

Coach Underhill led the Raiders from the 1978-79 season through the 1995-96 season, including the 1983 Division II National Championship.

Through his 18 years at Wright State, Coach Underhill went through many transformations with the times. With that in mind, we are letting the fans vote on which Ralph Underhill from the years will be depicted on the bobblehead.

The choices are an early 80s version and early 90s version. Fans have the opportunity to vote now through Thursday, July 2. The winning version will not be revealed until it is given away to the first 2,500 fans at a “to be determined” game during the 2015-16 season.

Go to WSURaiders.com to vote for your favorite bobblehead.
