The Cleveland State Vikings (21-9, 11-6 Horizon) close their regular season schedule against the Wright State Raiders (13-17, 7-10 Horizon) on Saturday afternoon at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland.

The Vikings, who halted a five-game losing streak with a win over the Detroit Titans on Thursday, are hoping to score another win so they can arrive to the Horizon League conference tournament with a fair bit of momentum.

The win over Detroit gave Cleveland State a second-place finish in the Horizon League and more importantly gave them a bye into the second round of the tournament, which begins on Feb. 28. However, they will need to return to the form that saw them win 10 of 11 to start the season if they are to win the conference tournament and return to the NCAA Tournament.

For the Raiders, today's game will provide another chance to knock off a conference power, something they have made a habit of doing already this season. Despite finishing in eighth place out of 11 teams in the league, Wright State crushed the conference-winning Valparaiso Crusaders 73-55 on Jan. 8 and blew out the Milwaukee Panthers 70-46 on Feb. 12.

The Vikings will lean on senior guard Trey Harmon, who leads the Vikings averaging 12.9 points overall this season, and is shouldering more of the offensive load lately, averaging 19.7 points in the last four games.

The game is scheduled to start today at 2:00 p.m. eastern.
