The Wright State men’s basketball team certainly had a year to remember. The team ended the season in second in the Horizon League, won the Horizon League tournament, and competed as a fourteen seed in the NCAA tournament.

Throughout the season, this Raider team showed determination to win the Horizon League. Despite getting second in the league, the team had a 14-4 record in conference games. After the regular season games, the Horizon League competed in Motor City Madness. This saw Wright State defeat Green Bay, Milwaukee, and Cleveland State to claim the championship. Along with bragging rights and a trophy, this tournament championship came with a trip to the NCAA tournament.

The team traveled to Dallas, Texas to compete against the Tennessee Volunteers in the first round. The Volunteers played a solid game on both ends of the court and defeated the Raiders, 73-47. This loss did not define their season as head coach Scott Nagy was proud of the work the team put in and how they competed.

“I enjoyed our season…I feel like we had a group of young men that really bonded together, played well together, and cared for each other. I think, for us, those are reasons why we won 25 games.”

Moving into next season, the goals still stay the same, as the Raiders look to add another successful season.

“Concrete goals are to win the conference championship, go to NCAA tournament and that’s never gonna change. Individually, everyone has different things they need to work on like adding weight or improving ball handling, all those things.”
