Wright State Roundup

Without suspended players, UC cruises past Wright State //

UC, which entered the game shooting 41.5 percent and averaging 62.2 points, looked like a different team – and not just because it was missing four players. "We came out and just played," said Wright, who scored 12 points and had eight assists. "Since we were small, we were just going out there and just play hard and leave it all on the floor. Whatever happens happens. Everybody was free to play their game and nobody cared. Coach just let us play."
