As Cavaliers Look on, CSU Beats YSU, and Looks to Roadtrip

Cavaliers Danny Green and Cedric Jackson sat courtside as CSU (10-12, 6-4) got a much needed win at home against Horizon League bottom feeder Youngstown State 77-69 on Saturday.

The win moved the Vikings to 6-4 in conference, and right into the thick of the Horizon League race for second place.

No use racing for first, that belongs to #18 Butler (10-o in conference), and the Bulldogs aren’t a team you want to see early in the tournament.

CSU coach Gary Waters on Butler:

“Butler went into Green Bay and smacked them around like they weren’t even out there last night (Friday).  That tells you they’re getting better.  That’s what’s scary about Butler.  Understand that Green Bay had a 20-game home win streak.  They beat Wisconsin at home, and Butler went in there and spanked him.  I don’t mean patted them on the hands, they hit their fannies pretty good. “

Danny-Green-at-CSUCleveland State did no fanny spanking on Saturday in their win over YSU by any means.  It was ugly.  But it
did keep CSU logged jammed in second place along with Green Bay, Detroit, and Wright State who all had four losses as of Saturday with the race for regular season silver heating up.

“We’re tied in second, we have four home games, and four road games left.  We take care of home, and steal two of the four on the road, and we should be right there.  And that’s why this trip is so important.  Because we’re not sure we’ll take care of home.  Why?  Because the four teams that are coming in here all beat us.  And they’re all fighting for their playoff lives…except for Butler. “

Cleveland State’s Jeremy Montgomery went 4 of 6 from three point range for the Vikings to finish with 18 points on the night.  After hitting a big three in the second half he pointed over and showed the NBAers some love on his way back down the floor on defense.

I thought it was cool, and asked him about what it meant to look over and see NBA players seated courtside at your games:

“It means a lot, especially when one of the guy’s are from your program.  Ced worked a lot with me last year, and we’re proud of him, where he’s at, and I want to go out there and make him proud.  When I hit that shot, I just wanted to let him know I appreciate all that, and show him some love.”

cedric-jacksonNorris Cole led the Vikings with 19 points, and D’Aundray Brown registered a double-double with 11 points, 12 rebounds as well as 6 steals.  Youngstown State’s DeAndre Mays led all scores with 27.

After the game the current Cavaliers – like Cedric Jackson pictured below – signed autographs for any kid that asked.

Up next for CSU is road games against Loyola and UIC, and then back home on the 14th for a match-up with Butler.
