Back-to-back plays by Davis get crowd going and ‘change the game’
 Kyle Davis knows how to take direction. The Dayton senior guard wasn’t much of a factor through most of the St. Bonaventure game Saturday. But with the Flyers playing without their usual pep, coach Archie Miller implored his defensive-minded star to make something happen. “I started out slow, and the coach pulled me over in the...

Dayton’s ‘team of fighters’ prevails down the stretch vs. St. Bonaventure
 A sellout crowd of 13,455 may have been squirming in their seats when Dayton fell behind by 15 in the first half, and coach Archie Miller probably didn’t like having to get as animated as he did to jolt his players out of their funk. Facing big deficits, though, is nothing new for these senior-laden Flyers. They’d rather not put...

Dayton Flyers hold off gritty Bonnies
 Dayton overcame a 15-point first-half deficit and hung on for a 76-72 victory over gritty St. Bonaventure at UD Arena on Saturday afternoon. Scoochie Smith had 19 points, Kendall Pollard 16 and Charles Cooke 13 as the Flyers improved to 21-5 overall and remained in a first-place tie in the Atlantic 10 with VCU at 12-2.

New Wright State baseball coach upbeat despite team’s youth
 The Wright State baseball team had a program-record five players selected in Major League Baseball’s 2016 draft. That’s a cause for celebration, of course. But it also means first-year coach Jeff Mercer is dealing with some major turnover going into his maiden season. The biggest voids were left by catcher Sean Murphy and shortstop...

Nagy wants Raiders to stay loose in home stretch

Posted: 5 days ago

Wright State is peaking at the right time, winning six of its last eight games. But coach Scott Nagy didn’t like what he saw in practice earlier this week. His issue with his team had nothing to do with effort, though. With five Horizon League games left and so much up for grabs, Nagy believed his players were starting to feel the pressure...
Alstork leans on faith to get him through rough patch
 Being pulled from the starting lineup for two games in January shook Mark Alstork to his core. The Wright State junior guard led the nation in scoring through the first quarter of the season, and he won the first two Horizon League player-of-the-week awards. Though he knew he was slumping, he’s an ultra-competitive player who still...

Greater Dayton Rowing Association members compete in Boston
 When Troy Christian senior Megan Hinkle was persuaded to join the youth team at the Greater Dayton Rowing Association a few years ago, she knew nothing about the sport and figured at best it would help with her offseason conditioning for basketball, her first love. But, as she points out, “It didn’t stay that way for long. After...

Greenon race walker breaks national junior record
 Greenon High School senior Cameron Haught is such a natural race walker that he normally looks as if he’s gliding rather than expending energy as he motors around the track. But Knights cross country coach Eric Brickson saw more huffing and puffing than usual out of Haught during a 3,000-meter race a couple of weeks ago. “He gave...

South Dakota State point guard transfers to Wright State

Rebounding improvement key to Wright State’s success
 Wright State charts all the usual statistics to figure out its strengths and weaknesses, but coach Scott Nagy can always tell whether his team is on the right track just by its rebounding totals. If his players are fully engaged and committed to winning, he believes it will show up in how well they retrieve missed shots. “I call it...

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 when asked which...
Walk-on point guard earning playing time for Wright State
 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...
