The Vikings were young but promising, with Anton
Trey Lewis has officially announced that he will transfer to Louisville and play for the Cardinals next season. Here’s a look at how the story developed on Monday and Tuesday. Early Monday, reports surfaced surrounding Trey Lewis, the coveted Cleveland State graduate transfer who had allegedly narrowed his search down to Louisville and Ohio State. Reports added that
It isn’t the best sign for Cleveland State basketball that the most noteworthy story related to the program is one of a star player transferring away. So it goes. The recruiting battle for redshirt senior-to-be Trey Lewis continues, and Ohio State and Xavier are among the schools said to have shown “heavy interest,” per ESPN’s
Soon-to-be former Cleveland State guard Trey Lewis reportedly “loved” his visit to the University of Louisville on Wednesday, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal‘s Jeff Greer. Lewis will transfer from CSU, and Louisville is among several major programs recruiting him. Lewis will be a fifth-year senior next season, and he will be immediately eligible to play as

It may not be the Big Dance, but the Cleveland State Vikings are still boogying into the college basketball postseason. The Vikings continue their run in the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament Monday night, when they will face the NJIT Highlanders in a second-round game in Newark, NJ. The game will tip off at 7 p.m. Cleveland
He missed the first six games of the season. He missed playing at Louisville. He missed out on the Horizon League championship, in both the regular season and conference tournament. He missed out on the NCAA Tournament. He missed out on a lot of things this year. But Cleveland State senior Charlie Lee wasn’t ready to call
Their loss to Valparaiso in the Horizon League conference tournament semi-finals took them out of the running for the NCAA Tournament, and their resume wasn’t sparkly enough to warrant an invitation to the NIT, but the Cleveland State Vikings (18-14, 11-5 Horizon League) are not done playing basketball yet this season. For the second year
It wasn’t a surprising result. They were playing on the road. They were playing on the second night of a back-to-back. They were playing the conference champions. They were playing against a bigger team, a stronger team, perhaps a more skilled team. So it is not much of a shocker that the Cleveland State Vikings’
Their regular season ended with disappointment, and their path to the NCAA Tournament is much tougher than it would have been had they beaten Valparaiso last Friday, but the Cleveland State Vikings ain’t dead yet. They are the number four seed in the eight-team Horizon League tournament, and Friday night they play the Detroit Titans in
While their recent loss to Valparaiso was quite the storm cloud, there is a silver lining to the end of the Cleveland State Vikings’ regular season: Trey Lewis, Anton Grady, and Charlie Lee all earned All-Horizon League honors. Grady and Lewis (pictured above) were both named to the all-league first team, while Grady and Lee
For any team, those words hurt to say after a loss. They especially hurt for this Cleveland State team. For a team whose reputation is built around defense; for a team that led the conference in steals (officially) and floor burns (unofficially); for a team whose attitude embodies the nebulous but fierce Rust Belt identity;
“This game really hurt.” Those were among Trey Lewis’ words after the Cleveland State Vikings lost 56-53 at home to the Valparaiso Crusaders late Friday night. The Vikings made it close in the final minutes, but they struggled to score all game long and were chasing Valpo almost from the opening tip. The win clinches the
Despite a boneheaded headline suggesting the contrary―seriously, who writes this crap?―the Cleveland State Vikings will play Friday night for a share of the Horizon League regular season title and the top seed in the Horizon League tournament. It looked as though CSU’s loss to Milwaukee would take them out of the title picture, as all powerhouse Valparaiso (then
To borrow from the old Buffalo Wild Wings tagline: “Vikes. Beer. Sports.” The Cleveland State Vikings stumbled in their most recent contest against the Milwaukee Panthers, but they have one regular season game left. It is this Friday night against the 25-4, Horizon League-leading Valparaiso Crusaders, at 10 p.m. You read that correctly: the Vikes
Cleveland State controlled their own destiny, and then they fumbled it away. The Vikings beat Green Bay in an overtime thriller Friday night, but fell to the Milwaukee Panthers 66-60 Sunday afternoon in the second leg of their two-game Wisconsin road trip. The loss ends CSU’s hopes for the regular season Horizon League title,1 though they can still get
