CSU Loses Chance at Being No. 1 in Horizon League
CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland State Vikings picked the wrong game to have a bad shooting day.
The Vikings Saturday shot 29 percent from the floor for the game and were never able to keep up with Horizon League-leading Wisconsin Green Bay who snapped Cleveland State’s seven-game winning streak with a 68-52 win.
The Vikings fell behind 16-5 to start the game and were never able to dig themselves out of the hole.
Trey Lewis was the lone bright spot for Cleveland State who led the team with 20 points. Bryn Forbes, CSU’s three-point shooter was not feeling well before the game and did not play. No other Vikings player scored in double figures.
The Phoenix had three players score in double-figures including Alec Brown and Keifer Sykes who led the team with 18 points.
Cleveland State needed to win this game to have any chance of taking over the number one spot in the Horizon League standings and get the chance to host the Horizon League conference tournament in March.
The Vikings will stay at home to host Milwaukee in their lone game next week on Saturday, Feb. 22, at 2 p.m.
