Ohio State just keeps winning, with yet another notch in the W column mid-week as the Buckeyes slid past the Purdue Boilermakers. They have an exceedingly tough match against the Michigan State Spartans on the horizon, greeting Sparty into Ohio on Saturday at 6 PM ET.
Cleveland State suffered another loss at the worst possible time mid-week when they lost to the Valparaiso Crusaders and lost their spot at the top of the Horizon conference. The 59-41 setback was the Vikings' second loss this season to the Crusaders, who seem to be the only team able to beat Cleveland State in the Horizon. The Vikings get a chance to redeem themselves on Saturday as they face the Bulter Bulldogs at 11 AM ET.
The Zips of Akron have a Saturday match as well after a win over Western Michigan, welcoming the Northern Illinois Huskies to town at 7:30 PM ET on Saturday.
