Tanner Holden, Jordan Ash, Andre Harris, TJ Nagy, Trey Calvin, Aleksandar Dozic and Tim Finke have only been on Wright State University’s campus for a few weeks, but they are quickly finding their footing while adding depth to the Raiders roster.
“We got seven new guys with the freshman and transfers,” said Cole Gentry, a senior guard and team veteran. “It’s important for us older guys to help them out.”
“Everybody’s fitting in pretty well,” said Jordan Ash, a senior transfer from Northwestern University. “I wanted to go somewhere I can play and have a chance to have a big year, a big role on a really good team.”
The men’s basketball team has been working out four days a week and lifting weights to prepare for the 2019-2020 season.
“I know we are going to be good this year,” said Trey Calvin, a freshman guard from Chicago.
“It’s good to be in a winning environment,” said Aleksandar Dozic, a senior transfer who is native to Podgorica, Montenegro. “Everything about school is perfect so far.”
The seven new additions will make it competitive within the team. “If you’re not playing hard or playing well there will be another player that is willing to do it now,” said Gentry.
The summer workouts concluded Aug. 1. The men’s basketball team will travel to Italy from Aug. 2 to Aug. 12 to compete against three Italian professional basketball teams.
