DDN: Finke playing pivotal role for Raiders

Tim Finke

Excerpt from the Dayton Daily News

Tim Finke is building lasting memories at Wright State after transferring from Grand Canyon in Phoenix. He has a pivotal role for the Raiders and is meshing with his teammates.

But nobody can fault him if doesn’t exactly recall EVERY single moment from this promising season. There was a brief period at the start of a New Year’s Day game at Oakland where a blow to the head sent him to La-La-Land.

“I was going up for an offensive rebound, and it was weird. I got an elbow and a forearm to the face, and it was a quick second where I blacked out and didn’t know where I was,” he said.

He was put into concussion protocol and missed the rest of the game and the next one, too.

“It kind of (stunk) that it happened in the first two minutes and I had to sit out the whole weekend,” he said, “but you have to bounce back.”

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound sophomore has certainly done that. Actually, he’s just picked up where he left off.
