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.
