WRIGHT STATE (10-16, 4-9)
AT VALPO (9-16, 4-8)
When: 7:05 p.m. today.
The Skinny: The Crusaders are hoping to rebound from a crushing 80-38 loss to first-place Green Bay last week, as they welcome Wright State to the ARC.
VU is 12-9 all-time against the Raiders and should be considered a slight favorite in this contest. In the first meeting with Wright State, VU lost a 67-66 heart-breaker when Kim Demmings went coast-to-coast with the game-winning bucket with 6.3 seconds on the clock. Tabitha Gerardot notched 18 points and 10 rebounds against WSU last time out. Charae Richardson also had a big game against the Raiders, tallying 17 points.
The Raiders have hit a bump in the road recently, losing their sixth straight against Milwaukee on Saturday (74-61). Demmings played well, scoring 28 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Ivory James is averaging 11.1 points per game, while K.C. Elkins is posting 11 points a contest.
