For all your news and analysis needs on NCAA basketball, check out SB Nation's college basketball hub.

First place in the Horizon League is on the line as the Cleveland State Vikings (17-4, 7-2) travel to Youngstown State (11-8, 6-3) on Saturday night for a 7:05 p.m. EST tip off at Beeghly Physical Education Center.

Cleveland State currently holds the lead in the Horizon League, but Youngstown State is just a game behind, so a win on Saturday night would propel them to the top and in a tie with the VIkings. The Penguins have already beaten Cleveland State this season, 73-67 on December 31, so they would hold the tie-breaker.

Cleveland State has won five of six since that loss to the Penguins and are currently ranked No. 10 in the Mid-Major Top 25. Despite losing the most recent match up, the Vikings have won eight of the last 10 against their in-state rival.
