Current Vikings Impress Ex-Viking, New Cav Cedric Jackson

Last year, while Cedric Jackson was leading the Cleveland State Vikings to the Horizon League championship and a first round win over Wake Forest in the NCAA tournament, Cavaliers GM Danny Ferry was watching.

Last night the Cleveland State Vikings played the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Phoenix in Cleveland at the Wolstein Center.  This time, after signing a 10-day contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier in the day, Cedric Jacskon was watching.

And don’t think his old teammates didn’t come out with a little extra juice after hearing their old teammate was now new teammates with LeBron James.

Vikings leading scorer and starting PG Norris Cole on what all that meant last night:

“It was great for Cedric to be here, whether he’s in the NBA or not.  But the fact that he’s in the NBA now, and has Cleveland State behind his name as his college, it is special.  He represented us well when he was here, and he will represent us well at the next level.  And we wanted to go show that he left behind some good players that are going to continue on what he and J’Nathan built here.”

cedric-jacksonLast night they did show that Ced Jackson left some good players behind, and none moreso than Cole himself.  The junior opened the game with 3-pointer, and went on to game highs with 22 points and 8 assists, en-route to a  64-50 win that was never in doubt.

Sophomore Center Aaron Pogue added 11 points and 4 rebounds on the night, while Jeremy Montgomery scored 10.  For Green Bay, Randy Berry grabbed 11 rebounds to go along with 11 points, and Rian Pearson scored 14 points and had 5 rebounds as well.

But even though this was a big win for CSU – who came in with a losing record overall and in conference compared to the 14-6 (6-2) marks Green Bay entered with – all the buzz after the game was about the next 10 days in the life of Cedric Jackson.

Coach Gary Waters on that subject:

“He’s got the talent and he’s dedicated.  As long as he stays committed to what he’s trying to do he has a good chance of staying for a lengthy period of time.  Now all he has is a 10-day contract, but that’s where you get started.  You get one 10-day, then another 10-day, then before you know it, you’re in the NBA. But let me say this, in talking with the NBA guys,  Danny Ferry and all them, they’ve always thought  he had great future, and that’s why they kept him here this summer…right now, they’re in a little need, they just lost two guards [Mo Williams and Delonte West] in a matter of two days.   So they’re a little concerned.  I don’t know if there’s a prospect of him getting out onto the floor, but I do know this – primarily when you bring a guy in it is for practice, but they told him, hey we may have to get you in the game.”

Coach Waters went on to say that his Vikings squad, now 8-12 (4-4), will have a walk through tomorrow in preparation for their game on Sunday at home against the University of Milwaukee-Wisconsin (the place Bruce Pearl coached before going shirtless and painting orange T’s on his chest).  He didn’t say whether or not they’d all get together to keep a collective close eye on the Cavaliers game Saturday night though, but I imagine they will.

  19. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
