Trailing by two at halftime, Austin Peay (2-3) forced two ties in the second half’s opening two minutes. Senior Tiasha Gray‘s layup at the 8:01 mark forcing the game’s final tie, 33-33.

Wright State (3-1) slowly eased the game open over the next 4:30, with the lead hitting 10 points for the first time on a pair of Kim Demmings free throws at the 3:27 mark. The Raiders ultimately used a 23-9 run over the final 8:01 to build a 56-42 lead at quarter’s end.

The second half was in stark contrast to the first two quarters that saw the teams exchange the lead 10 times. Wright State took a four-point lead at the quarter – the largest lead by any team in the first frame – after a JJ Williams three pointer and later free throw.

Austin Peay had just four players score through three quarters — Banks, senior Tiasha Gray, sophomore Madison Rich and redshirt freshman Falon Baker – with four more joining the scoring effort in the fourth quarter.

Gray chipped in 12 points and six rebounds prior to fouling out with six minutes remaining. Sophomore Madison Rich hit a trio of three pointers and finished with 10 points.

Demmings led all scorers with a Wright State-best 24 points. Antania Hayes added a nine-point, 11-rebound performance.
