The Cleveland State Vikings will try to notch their ninth win of the season on Wednesday night, when they play host to the Kent State Golden Flashes.

Cleveland State rebounded with a win over Rio Grande on Dec. 28, after falling to the Akron Zips on Dec. 23. Now on Wednesday, the Vikings will aim to win their second straight game.

Kent State figures to be a tough test for Cleveland State. The Golden Flashes are currently riding a three-game winning streak, after snapping a three-game losing streak.

If the Vikings are going to win on Wednesday night, they'll likely need to stop Kent State's leading scorer, Chris Evans. Kent State's 6'8 senior forward is averaging 16.9 points per game so far this season, with 7.5 rebounds per game.

Anton Grady and Charlie Lee are Cleveland State's top scorers this year, and the Vikings will need a strong performance from both on Wednesday night. Grady leads the team with 13.7 points per game, but Lee isn't far off the pace, averaging 13.5 points per game.

Tip-off between Kent State and Cleveland State is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET.
