Wright State defeats Eastern Illinois 56-44

CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) - JT Yoho scored 14 points and Kendall Griffin added 11 to lead Wright State to a 56-44 victory against Eastern Illinois on Tuesday night.

     Reggie Arceneaux had 10 points, and Yoho and Matt Vest grabbed eight rebounds each for the Raiders (2-0).

     Alex Austin scored 11 points and Sherman Blanford 10 for the Panthers (0-2), who could not overcome a cold-shooting first half.

     Wright State led 32-17 at halftime after Eastern Illinois shot just 25 percent (6 of 24) from the floor in the first 20 minutes.

     A 3-pointer by Yoho - who was 3 for 4 from behind the arc - stretched the Raiders' lead to 47-27 with 8:18 remaining.

      Wright State outrebounded the Panthers 37-24.
