Cleveland State began its final two-game road trip of the season with an 8 PM ET game at Valparaiso this Thursday (Feb. 9th), in which they lost by a final score of 78 to 57.
The Vikings are now 7-18 overall and 3-10 in the Horizon League following a 53-51 setback to Oakland on Saturday in the Wolstein Center.
This was a rough one for the Vikings men’s basketball team suffering from long stretches of scoreless minutes against a superior Valopraiso team.
Rob Edwards finished with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists.. Kenny Carpenter hit 6-of-14 from the floor for his 13 points and added 6 rebounds. Demonte Flannigan scored only 8 points with 5 rebounds and 2 assists. Needless to say, the bench had little to no production aside from Carpenter, and Bobby Word was essentially a no-show. If something does not change sooner than later, we could be seeing a mass exodus of not only players transferring and coaches getting the boot.
Next for the Vikings is an away game against UIC for a 4 PM ET tip-off on Saturday, February 11th. Then CSU returns home to host Northern Kentucky on February 16th at 7:45 PM ET, beginning a stretch of games at home to close the regular season.
