About Wright State: The Raiders are playing their third road game this season. They beat Southern Illinois, 85-81, and lost to Georgia State, 81-74. … Benzinger averaged 8.6 points in the first five games and has averaged 25.3 in his last three. He's one of four starters shooting at least 40 percent on 3-pointers at 41.7, joining LaTulip (48.6), Steven Davis (44.0) and Mitchell (40.0). Alstork, who is 22nd nationally in scoring, isn't far behind (39.5). …The Raiders have averaged 15.5 turnovers, mostly because the roster lacks a true point guard. That has contribued to scoring droughts in games. Against Georgia State, they went four-plus minutes without a point in the first half and then scored just two in the first seven minutes of the second half. They also had a 10-minute scoreless spell against CSU Bakersfield and were blanked for five minutes against North Florida.
