Wright State in NCAAs

first_imgThe Bulldogs have lost six of their past seven games at Wright State’s Nutter Center – ending a five-game skid with Saturday night’s 67-66 overtime win over Loyola of Chicago. Wood helped turn the tide after Butler had scrambled back from an eight-point deficit to take the lead in the final minutes. The Raiders only previous trip to the NCAA Tournament in their 20 years in Division I came in 1993, when they were pounded 97-54 by Indiana in the first round after capturing the Mid-Continent Conference tournament title. Oral Roberts 71, Oakland, Mich. 67: Ken Tutt banked in a jumper with 31.6seconds left as the Golden Eagles won the Mid-Continent Conference tournament title in Tulsa, Okla., and an automatic NCAA Tournament bid for the second straight year. North Texas 83, Arkansas St. 75: Calvin Watson hit six 3-pointers and scored 24points to help the Mean Green (23-10) get to its first NCAA Tournament since 1988 with a victory in the Sun Belt Conference tournament championship in Lafayette, La. DaShaun Wood scored 27points and Will Graham hit four free throws in the last 12seconds to lead Wright State (23-9) past No. 19 Butler (27-6) 60-55 Tuesday night for the Horizon League postseason title and its second trip to the NCAA Tournament. Butler still holds out hope of receiving an at-large bid to its seventh trip to the NCAA Tournament. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
