YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- Mark Alstork scored 33 points, including two pivotal free throws in the final 30 seconds, and Wright State held off Youngstown State 84-81 on Thursday night.

The win for Wright State gives the Raiders three victories in a row, and avenges a loss earlier in the season to the Penguins.

Wright State (18-9, 9-5 Horizon League) held a 43-34 lead at halftime, but a Jorden Kaufman layup for Youngtown State with 24 seconds left cut the Raiders lead to one, 82-81.

After a Braun Hartfield foul, Alstork stepped to the line and sank both foul shots to extend the lead back to three. Brett Frantz misfired on a 3-pointer on the Penguins' final possession.
