Cleveland State vs Wright State Game Preview, Horizon League Tournament
Why Cleveland State Will Win
The Vikings have struggled a bit lately, but they’re used to working on the road with five straight away from home before rolling Robert Morris.

Why Wright State Will Win
Wright State is on a roll.

No, the Horizon League semifinal might not seem like appointment viewing for the sports world, but this might be among the better games of the conference tournament season – at least before the weekend.
Both teams are about even and neither one should be able to do enough from three to pull away and take over.
Free throws will be a problem for the Vikings – it’ll let Wright State take too many – but they’ll be just a wee bit better defensively late to survive.
