What to Know
The Wright State Raiders and the Bryant Bulldogs are set to clash at 6:40 p.m. ET March 16 at University of Dayton Arena in the 0th round of the NCAA Tournament.
The Northern Kentucky Norse typically have all the answers at home, but last week Wright State proved too difficult a challenge. The Raiders escaped with a win by the margin of a single free throw, 72-71. They got double-digit scores from four players: guard Trey Calvin (21), guard Tanner Holden (19), forward Grant Basile (18), and guard Tim Finke (10).
Meanwhile, Bryant earned some more postseason success in their game last Tuesday. They made easy work of the Wagner Seahawks and carried off a 70-43 win. Guard Peter Kiss took over for Bryant, finishing with 34 points (a whopping 49% of their total) along with six rebounds and five steals.
Wright State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They are currently three-for-three against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
With both teams having displayed their playoff mettle, spectators can expect a high-quality contest. Check back with CBS Sports for more details during and after the game.
