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.
