KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Wright State University men’s basketball coach Scott Nagy has been selected the District 12 Coach of the Year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

Nagy, in his second year as head coach at WSU, led the Raiders to a WSU Division I record 25 wins and the school’s first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2007. Wright State finished second in the Horizon League, posting a record 14 wins, and won the post-season tournament with wins over Green Bay, Milwaukee and Cleveland State. The Raiders advanced to the NCAA Tournament where they fell to Tennessee. The 2018 Horizon League Coach of the Year led South Dakota State to three NCAA Tournaments prior to coming to Wright State.

“This is a team award and is a reflection of our program,” Nagy said. “The players and coaching staff deserve all the credit because they did a tremendous job all season.”
