Cleveland State Vikings

Cleveland State drops fourth straight; Vikings fall to Arkansas State 78-50

The Vikings ended a four-game road trip with a game at Arkansas State on Wednesday (Nov. 30) in which the Vikings fell short, losing 78-50.

Demonte Flannigan and Terrell Hales, who both missed the first four games of the season with injuries – returned on Sunday at Duquesne to make their season debuts.

Leading scorers for the Vikings were Demonte Flannigan with 14 points and 6 rebounds and Kenny Carpenter with 10 points and 5 rebounds.  

The Vikings were outscored in the paint by 18 and Arkansas State scored 22 more bench points than CSU.  And once again, turnovers were a huge issue for the Vikings committing 23 and allowing 20 points off of those turnovers.  

Needless to say, the Vikings struggle on the road, and especially in the turnover category, as only 17 points were scored in the first half by the Vikings.   

They need to come home and defend home court in order to get back in the swing of things.  Cleveland State hopes this road losing trend is not a lasting one or it’s going to be a long, unsuccessful season for the Vikings.

Next, the Vikings return home to host Bethune-Cookman on Saturday (Dec. 3) at 12:00 pm at Quicken Loans Arena.
