College Basketball: Benzinger leads Raiders past IUPUI
 The hustling Grant Benzinger needed five stitches in his hip after the UIC win Thursday — the third time in his career he’s had to be stitched up — but that didn’t curtail the way he played against IUPUI less than 48 hours later. He hit the deck four times to battle for loose balls and had to have his knee taped by...

College Basketball: Wright State tops UIC in Horizon League opener
 Wright State coach Scott Nagy isn’t accustomed to having a team that rarely gets easy baskets and struggles so much to score. The Raiders burned Georgia Tech from long range in an upset last week, but that was an anomaly. They’re proving they can win, though, even without dazzling offense. “In terms of just shooting, it&rsquo...

Wright State Insider: Welch at her best in biggest games for Raiders
 Chelsea Welch has a multitude of skills, but the Wright State point guard’s most impressive attribute may be that she plays her best in the biggest games. That was the case last week when she had 29 points in a 91-81 win at Belmont, the preseason favorite in the Ohio Valley Conference, and followed that with a 25-point, 10-assist effort...

WSU Insider: Love honored by league after wrecking Toledo
 Wright State’s Louden Love was named the Horizon League freshman of the week for his performance at Toledo on Saturday, and he probably could have won the award if he only played one half against the Rockets.

Wright State coach’s defensive philosophy taking hold
 Scott Nagy emphasizes defense as much as any college coach, and he’d probably include at least a couple of defensive stoppers in every recruiting class if they weren’t so hard to find. Those players are scarce because high school stars generally focus only on scoring — and their coaches tend to shield them on defense anyway...
