DDN: Veteran guard to get first crack at open starting spot

Alex Huibregtse

Excerpt from the Dayton Daily News

Wright State coach Scott Nagy said the one vacancy in his starting five has been filled — though he’s quick to point out the competition for those coveted spots never really ends.

“You have to earn it every day, or we’re going to move somebody else in there,” he said.

“Right now, it’s probably going to be Alex and, hopefully, it’ll stay that way.”

Alex Huibregtse, a fourth-year junior wing, is expected to take the floor with point guard Trey Calvin, wing Tanner Holden and posts Brandon Noel and A.J. Braun for the opening tip when the Raiders play at Colorado State on Nov. 10.

Huibregtse, the 6-foot-3 Grafton, Wis., product, led the Raiders in 3′s last season with 57. He started 12 times and averaged 23.7 minutes, fourth-most on the team.

He played 20-plus minutes in 21 of the last 23 games.
