Wright State clobbers Youngstown State 72-45
WRIGHT ST 72, YOUNGSTOWN ST 45
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Jerran Young posted 14 points and 10 Wright
State teammates scored as the Raiders routed Youngstown State
Wright State (19-11, 10-6 Horizon League) led throughout, taking
a 39-19 halftime lead. This wasn't like Youngstown State's 68-61
home victory over the Raiders on Jan. 23. The Penguins (16-14,
7-9) played without leading scorer Kendrick Perry Saturday,
still out with a knee injury.
Damien Eargle was the only Youngstown State player in double
figures with 11 points.
With the victory, Wright State got a first-round bye in the
Horizon League tournament. The third-seeded Raiders will play
the winner of Tuesday's first-round game between Youngstown
State and Loyola.
Matt Vest scored 11 points for Wright State, which outscored
Youngstown State 42-14 in the paint, 19-3 on points off
turnovers and 33-13 in bench scoring. The Penguins made just 14
of 39 from the floor, 6 of 20 in the first half.
