DDN: Wright State hammers IUPUI on the road

Raisders vs IUPUI

Excerpt from the Dayton Daily News

After showing up for its previous two games with just five scholarship players, Wright State didn’t exactly get off to an ideal start with a nearly full roster on the road against IUPUI on Thursday.

Maybe the players just needed a little time to get reacquainted.

Tied at 17-all with eight minutes left in the first half, the Raiders outscored their hosts, 22-3, to take a 39-20 halftime lead and stormed to a 73-45 victory before a sparse crowd at Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

Grant Basile almost reached his season average in the first half, tallying 17 of his 20 points, as the Raiders improved to 10-8 overall and 7-2 in the Horizon League.

The 6-foot-9 junior had eight points in the closing surge in the first half and finished with eight rebounds and three blocks.

Shooting just 22.1% on 3′s this season, he made 3 of 6 against the Jaguars and 7 of 12 shots overall while notching his third straight game with at least 20 points.
