DAYTON, Ohio -- Jerren Young came off the bench for 23 points to go with six rebounds as Wright State defeated Horizon League foe Cleveland State 69-53 Wednesday night for the Raiders' four straight win.
Young went 8 of 11 from the field and sank all four free throw attempts in just 21 minutes of action for Wright State (12-4, 3-0). Kendall Griffin chipped in 12 points. His three-point play midway through the first half gave the Raiders a commanding 50-36 lead.
Wright State shot 46.2 percent (12 of 26) from the field in the first half and made seven 3-pointers in the period to take a 35-17 lead into the break. Cleveland State (9-8, 1-2), conversely, made just 6 of 23 shots and committed 11 turnovers in the opening frame.
Is there a link between recruiting wins and success? Kentucky and LSU are among teams that have recruited well, but haven't reached their expectations.
Purdue junior forward Vincent Edwards, who has averaged 19.0 points in the NCAA tournament, has decided not to pursue the NBA for now.
Kansas-Kentucky is not only the headliner of the Big 12/SEC Challenge but arguably the most intriguing. We rank all the games in the January event.
