The Ohio State Buckeyes are currently tied for first place in the Big Ten Conference with Michigan State, but they have a different team from Michigan to worry about as the weekend approaches. The Buckeyes will face the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday at 9 PM ET. Both Ohio State and Michigan State are 10-3, while the Wolverines are right behind in the standings taking up third place with a 9-4 record.
Cleveland State's incredibly promising season featuring a fantastic run to the top of the Horizon conference was dealt another blow on Tuesday as the Vikings fell to the Milwaukee Panthers, 86-84. That loss was the third in a row for the Vikings after only having lost two of their first 12 Horizon Conference games. They can finally snap their losing streak and pick up an important win when they face Drexel on Saturday at 11 AM ET. Cleveland State are currently one and a half games behind Valparaiso -- one of the three teams to beat them in their current streak -- in the Horizon standings.
The Akron Zips currently have a stranglehold on the MAC with an 11-1 record but will have to face another conference leader on Saturday as they take on Oral Roberts at 2 PM ET.
