Wright, a 6-4, 205 pound guard from Oak Hill, WV had been having a miserable last three games for the Herd. But against Buffalo, Wright got back into his groove.
Monty hit 2-of-3 three-point shots on his way to an 11-point game. He also grabbed two steals, as well as grabbing 4 rebounds.
He may not have been the game's high-scorer, but Monty Wright gets the HI Player of the Game Award for sticking it out through three games' worth of adversity, and for overcoming a slump by shooting his way out.
