DDN: Wright State Raiders have talent, experience

Wright State guard Trey Calvin

Excerpt from the Dayton Daily News

College basketball teams have 30 practices over a 42-day span before their season openers. And if there’s ever been a year where Wright State coach Scott Nagy didn’t need his full allotment, it would seem to be this one.

The Raiders return four established starters and have just one spot up for grabs. Nothing to it, right?

Well, that’s not the way Nagy sees it.

“ALL of those spots are up for grabs. That’s how we’re looking at it,” he said.

Nagy understandably doesn’t want anyone getting too comfortable, but first-team All-Horizon League pick Tanner Holden, second-teamer Grant Basile, all-defensive team honoree Tim Finke and steady point guard Trey Calvin are all safe bets to start if they flash the same form they displayed last season.

The real position battle is at center. And the Raiders will likely go with several combinations over the season to fill the void left by two-time league player of the year Loudon Love.
