Cleveland State might be a team to watch in the conference playoffs but they won't be winning the regular season title. That disappeared in a loss to Green bay last Saturday but the Vikings rebounded to take out their frustrations on a shorthanded Milwaukee by a 74-50 count. Both ends of the floor were at their best with CSU setting the tone with a 31-15 first half. The Vikings enjoyed a 46%-32% shooting advantage along with a few more shots in a wire to wire victory.Charlie Lee paced the balanced Cleveland State offense with 14 points with Anton Grady and Bryn Forbes adding 12 points apiece while Jon Harris and Marlin Mason combined for 18 points.
I really see no shot ay an upset here with Cleveland State capable of winning very easily but this is a lot of points. No solid angle to go on so I'll back the points for now but no interest for me...
