Nagy: Custer most difficult player for Wright State to replace


DAYTON -- Not Mark Alstork, no Steven Davis but Ryan Custer is who Wright State head basketball coach Scott Nagy said will be the most difficult player to replace for the 2017-18 season.

Custer fractured his vertebrae in an off-campus party in April and is currently in Denver working on his physical therapy.

As a freshman Custer averaged 2.2 points per game but was an outside threat while standing a 6'7".

"Being able to have somebody his size that can shoot it, is tough," Nagy said.

"It's left us with a big hole to fill. We're probably going to have to fill it with guards for the most part we're going to have to end up playing smaller."

Custer's absence will be one of several Wright State has to overcome this season. The Raiders must replace three starters including the team's top two leading scorers Alstork and Davis.

Alstork transferred to Illinois for his final season of college basketball after averaging 19 points per game per season for Wright State.

Steven Davis (14.9 points per game) and Mike LaTulip (7 points per game) graduated and so the Raiders will need to replace their production as well.
