LeBron James, in town for the Cavaliers’ game against the Detroit Pistons Tuesday, was in attendance as the Cleveland State Vikings took on the Oakland Golden Grizzlies in Rochester, Michigan Monday night. The young Vikings would have done well to play like LeBron’s Cavaliers as they looked to win their fourth straight game and sweep
During the national anthem Friday night at the Wolstein Center, Cleveland State guard Charlie Lee stretched his ankles. He put his right foot behind him and then his left, rotating each to warm up his lower joints as he surveyed his teammates. With two Vikings dealing with ankle issues—Andre Yates missed the game with a high
Don’t look now, but the Cleveland State Vikings have won five of their last six and are in first place in the Horizon League. The Vikes (11-9, 5-1 Horizon League) have come alive in conference play after an up-and-down first half of the season, and claimed their second straight road win by defeating the Youngstown
Don’t despair, Cleveland basketball fans. There’s one team with a winning record in the Forest City. The Cleveland State Vikings (10-9, 4-1 in Horizon League) did not play outstanding basketball Wednesday night in Dayton, where they squared off with the Wright State Raiders (10-8, 2-2). They shot a cover-your-eyes bad 3-of-19 from the three-point line.
The Cleveland State Vikings (9-8) defeated the Oakland Golden Grizzlies (5-11) in a back-and-forth matchup Thursday night at the Wolstein Center. CSU hopped on the Grizz early in the first half and led by 17 after the first eight minutes. They found themselves up by just two points with two minutes left in the game, but
While we were spending our weekends on the couch under a blanket of warm nacho cheese and cool beverage cans, the Cleveland State Vikings went to work. After a so-so start to the season, the Vikes opened Horizon League play with two wins, their first back-to-back victories since November. They blew out Wisconsin-Milwaukee at home Friday
Another road game against a top-25 caliber opponent, another loss for the Cleveland State Vikings. CSU (6-8) battled back after spotting the Virginia Commonwealth University Rams (10-3) an early 12-0 lead, but they never could take control, and VCU went on to capture a 72-63 victory Monday night in Richmond. VCU senior swingman Treveon Graham led all
The Cleveland Cavaliers visit the Miami Heat on Christmas Day, a game that will be rife with plenty of storylines. One which will go under discussed, however, is Heat point guard Norris Cole, a Cleveland State University alumnus, playing against his former teammate—and supporter—LeBron James. WFNY sits down with Cole, along with a few key Clevelanders in advance of the nationally televised match-up.
Cleveland State won Monday, and they won big. To pay homage to the artists of the world (including the CSU pep band, which always brings the goods, pictured above), WFNY elected to summarize the action through limerick poetry. Please do enjoy, and be a patron of the arts this holiday season: The Cougars from Mount Vernon
The following has happened to me; maybe it’s happened to you, too: You have plans. Maybe you’re going out to dinner, having a power lunch, meeting friends for a drink, or running a big day of errands. Whatever it is, you have things you intend to get done. You get dressed, you gather your things,
After spending last week on the road, the Cleveland State Vikings (3-3) are hosting the Toledo Rockets (2-4) tonight at the Wolstein Center. The Rockets are off to a slow start, but they were the preseason favorite to win the MAC. They brought back four starters from last year team, which set a school record with 27
If you’ve been going through Cleveland State basketball withdrawal, have no fear, for Cleveland’s favorite basketball team is back home. The Vikings wrapped up a three-game road trip—one that saw them visit Savannah State, Louisville, and Marshall—with a victory over the Thundering Herd last Friday. That win was the only one that the Vikes came
The Cleveland State Vikings (1-1) notched their first victory of the young season Monday, beating the Division II Tiffin Dragons (1-2) 85-56. I realized midway through the first half that Vikings versus Dragons is the entire plot of How to Train Your Dragon.1 In many ways, the events of the game mirrored those of the movie.
Last Friday, we explored the basketball-related reasons to get behind this Cleveland State squad, including head coach Gary Waters, guard Trey Lewis, and a trap-happy, defensive-minded team that will look to run its opponents into the ground. Today, we look at elements of the live game experience that make attending CSU games worth your while.
I was pleasantly surprised when Jacob asked me to write a post for this site. It’s not everyday a Cincinnati sports fan gets to spout on a Cleveland sports site, but today is neither about Cleveland nor Cincinnati. No, we must put our differences aside for this moment. Today is a celebration of Cinderella. Today,
Why not Dayton? This was the question asked for decades by the renowned Flyer Faithful. While the once-storied program consistently disappointed, mid-major after mid-major blasted through the gates of the NCAA tournament’s first weekend into the hearts of the nation.
New memories made where old ones will live forever. A trip back to the ‘old stomping grounds’ becomes a building block for the future.

Hope you had fun reading through an abbreviated version of my thesis research on baseball attendance last week. I could talk about projected Cleveland Indians attendance numbers all day, especially with an Akron Aeros tie-in. Now, this week, we’re heading over to college basketball. March means madness. It’s one of the most fun sports times
All good things must come to an end eventually. And for the Mid-American Conference’s Akron Zips, that had to mean its 19-game winning streak, the longest of the 2012-13 college basketball season. The run ended Saturday night at Buffalo, a tough setting in the past for Keith Dambrot’s teams. The Bulls built an early lead
