Cleveland State Tries to Keep Pace In Horizon League

By: Emmett Golden

The Cleveland State Vikings entered their game with Detroit looking to keep pace with the Horizon League’s elite. With CSU, Butler, and Wright State all at 5-2, a game behind 6-1 Valparaiso, you could tell there was a sense of urgency at the Wolstein Center.

The Vikings came out playing aggressively on the defensive end of the floor, as they always do. Detroit never backed down, proving they would not be out muscled.

CSU’s Trey Harmon had a big night scoring 18 of his 22 points in the first half giving the Vikings a 39-32 lead going into the locker room. “Trey was excellent tonight, especially in the first half,” said Coach Waters.

Cleveland State’s bench was the story of the night. Charlie Woods, Joe Latas, and Josh McCoy, picked the starters up by out scoring Detroit’s bench 23-18.

With the score tied at 60, Norris Cole took over. Cole who finished the game with 18 points and 11 assist, sparked a 17-6 run by the Vikings. Over the last 7:44 Detroit missed 6 free throws, many of them were on the front end of one and one’s. “You have to make baskets, when you miss free throws like we did down the stretch, it’s tough to win,” said Detroit’s coach Ray McCallum.

Cleveland State takes on Wright State Saturday at 2pm, at the Wolstein Center.
