Raiders on the Road This Week
Release: Monday 12/02/2013 
by WSU Athletic Media Relations
There will be plenty of Raider action this week, but it will all be on the road as both basketball teams and the swimming and track squads will be away from home.

 

Men’s Basketball:  With two straight wins, the men’s basketball team will be back in action at Morehead State Monday at 7 pm, at North Carolina A&T Thursday at 7 pm and at VMI Saturday at 1 pm.

The Raiders (5-3) defeated Alcorn State 73-55 and Western Carolina 85-77 last week.  Cole Darling led the way with 18 points against ASU and AJ Pacher matched that output versus WCU.  Five Raiders scored in double figures against WCU.  That was a first for WSU since February 25, 2010.  Pacher leads the team in scoring at 11.4 points per game with Miles Dixon sitting second at 10.3 points per game.

Morehead State, which WSU beat last year at home 66-57, is currently 6-3 overall.  North Carolina A&T, which also lost to the Raiders 56-44 in Dayton last season, will bring a 2-5 record into the WSU game and VMI, which lost at WSU last year 92-59, is currently 4-3 with a game at Elon Tuesday night.

Fans can listen to all the action with Chris Collins on 106.5 FM or through iHeart Radio or online at big1065.com.

 

Women’s Basketball: After winning three of four in the Gulf Coast Showcase, the Raiders boast a record of 7-2 and will play at Louisville next Saturday at 7 pm. 

WSU defeated Marian, North Carolina State and James Madison.  Kim Demmings continues to lead WSU with a 24.2 points per game average with Ivory James at 18.3 and Tay’ler Mingo at 14.4.  Tayler Stanton is currently grabbing 9.2 rebounds per game.  KC Elkins hit the game-winning three to seal a 79-77 win against James Madison at the buzzer.

Louisville lost its first game of the season Sunday in a 69-64 decision at Kentucky.  The Cardinals are 7-1 and host Missouri State Tuesday night before hosting WSU.  Louisville, who was the national runner-up to Connecticut last season, was ranked fourth nationally last week.

 

Swimming & Diving:  Wright State will compete in the annual Miami Invitational Thursday thru Saturday this week.

The men, 8-1 in dual meets, have been led by senior John Vigar in the 500 free (4:45.13), 1000 free (9:44.13) and 1650 free (16:29.21).  The women’s team, 4-6 in dual meets, have been led by junior Kortney Mullen in the 200 free (1:57.40), 500 free (5:13.34), 1000 free (10:52.14) and 1650 free (18:30.31).  Both squads will be back in dual meet action at Cleveland State January 18.

 

Track:  The Wright State indoor track and field team opens the season Friday and Saturday at Eastern Michigan for the Eagle Holiday Meet and will also compete Saturday at the Purple & White Invitational, hosted by Capital University in Columbus.  WSU will compete in 13 meets, capped off by the Horizon League Meet March 1-2 in Youngstown, Ohio.
