 First-year Wright State coach Scott Nagy has had to make do with an incomplete roster this season, often bringing up how the lack of a true point guard is holding the Raiders back.

Wright State prevails with strong defense
 The 3,488 Wright State fans who watched the Raiders make just 35 percent of their shots and commit 19 turnovers may have thought they witnessed an ugly game. But to first-year coach Scott Nagy, those 40 minutes against Cleveland State were a thing of beauty. That’s because his team put together perhaps its best defensive effort in a...

Wright State finding success with free throws and 3-point shooting
 Wright State coach Scott Nagy isn’t satisfied with his defense at the halfway point of the season and will be harping on that the rest of the way. And while he’ll keep addressing the team’s ball-handling issues, he’s come to accept he may have to live with a less-than-desirable turnover rate without a true point guard...

Ernsthausen gives Raiders lift with strong defense
 Wright State’s Parker Ernsthausen made his first start of the year at Kent State on Sunday. And while the 6-foot-11 sophomore chipped in just two points, the Raiders probably wouldn’t have been able to pick up a quality road win without him.

Mitchell, Raiders look to cut down on ball-handling miscues

8:54 PM Saturday, Dec. 17, 2016

Justin Mitchell looked over the box score after the Urbana game last week with a glum expression despite putting up some glittering numbers. The Fort Wayne, Ind., product had 21 points and six assists, both career highs. He went 7-for-7 from the field and also chipped in five rebounds and two steals in the 85-34 win.

 The Wright State coaches didn’t make any promises when they recruited Tye Wilburn — except to offer him a roster spot and a chance to compete for playing time at a position where the Raiders were woefully thin. That was good enough for the walk-on point guard, who was looking for a Division I program that needed him as much as...

College Basketball: Undersized Wright State crashing the boards
 When Wright State coach Scott Nagy looks back at the rebounding muscle his players displayed in the Loyola (Ill.) game last week, he still has trouble believing they were tagged with a loss.
