March Madness has swept the Wright State University community. It started with a watch party on March 6 for the Horizon League championship, when more than 75 alumni, faculty and staff gathered at Milano’s in Beavercreek to cheer on the men’s basketball team.
And they had plenty of reason to celebrate when the Raiders overwhelmed Cleveland State 74–57 to win the Horizon League title.
The victory gave the men’s basketball team its first trip to the NCAA tournament since 2007.
The Raiders will learn who they will play in the opening round of the tournament when the 68-team bracket is released March 11.
The Raiders, who were the Horizon League tournament’s second seed, are now 25–9, the most wins in the program’s Division I history.
