Miami gears up for Tarkett Sports Classic
 John Cooper has as much disdain for defeats as any coach, and he knows his program needs to produce some positive signs this year after beginning his tenure at Miami with four straight losing seasons. But he couldn’t help but be encouraged by what transpired in an 89-87 loss at Wright State on Tuesday, watching his players battle back...

Wright State tops Miami, 89-87, in home opener
 Wright State players are still trying to figure out what first-year coach Scott Nagy considers an acceptable shot in his fast-paced offense. A deep 3-pointer off the dribble is a no-no, judging from Nagy’s disapproving body language on the sideline, but the coach would give a thumbs up to any player firing after crisp ball movement...

Wright State guard recalls friendship with Dayton’s Steve McElvene
 Wright State point guard Justin Mitchell grew up in Fort Wayne, Ind., and was a childhood friend of Steve McElvene, the Dayton center who died tragically last spring and left so much promise in basketball and life unfulfilled. Mitchell had gotten a call from Indiana guard James Blackmon that McElvene had passed away. After checking with a...

Davis looking to lift Wright State
 After missing one full season and half of another because of injuries, Steven Davis could barely contain his glee over getting to suit up again for Wright State during an exhibition last week against Cedarville. When he threw down a fastbreak dunk, he waved his arms and cupped a hand to his ear to signal for more noise while he ran down the...

College Basketball: Wright State races to easy exhibition win
 Wright State players still have some kinks to work out in picking up first-year coach Scott Nagy’s up-tempo style, but they’ve clearly bought into a system that features plenty of quick-strike offense.

Wright State’s Ernsthausen hopes to have bigger impact this season
 Wright State’s Parker Ernsthausen wasn’t able to provide much of a low-post presence as a redshirt freshman last season. The 6-foot-11 center was too lean to hold his ground in prime scoring positions, and brawnier opponents could out-muscle him for baskets. But a carb-loaded diet and a commitment to the weight room have helped...

Not everybody was happy with that development — certainly not Centerville coach Matt Yux, who would have liked to have seen what his team could do with another crack at the Ohio State Scarlet Course...

Tecumseh’s running game too much for Kenton Ridge
 Tecumseh handled the sloppy conditions at Kenton Ridge by calling for a heavy dose of running plays and trying only three passes. The lack of balance may not be ideal, but the Arrows’ ground game was effective enough that they didn’t need to put the ball up for grabs. They rushed for 308 yards on 50 attempts and pounded out a...
