A battle of polar opposite teams in the Horizon League, Wright State and Cleveland State, takes place on Monday night. The Raiders have soared near the top of the conference winning five of their last seven. The Vikings have at least played better winning two of their last three. They did pull off an upset against WSU earlier this month, 77-74.

Wright’s solid play not enough for Vikings to win third straight

Cleveland State hasn’t been too bad lately since their awful start to the season. They’ve gone 3-3 in their last six games and have won a majority of those games against the spread. Neither of those transpired in their previous game against Oakland at home on Friday night. The Golden Grizzlies coasted to an easy 82-66 beatdown in the second half. The Vikings hit 41.8 percent of their shots and were demolished on the glass by a 38-18 rebounding margin.

Anthony Wright (8.1 ppg) led the team in scoring and boarding with 18 points and 7 rebounds. He went a very efficient 7-for-11 from the field. Two other players each attempted 11 field goals but only made a combined seven field goals (Stefan Kenic went 2-for-11). Wright has stepped up over the last two games with 33 combined points — prior to that he had 23 points combined over a five-game stretch.

Despite poor perimeter shooting Raiders hold on to big win against NKU

Wright State sits tied at the top of the conference with Northern Kentucky, so they’ll need to keep down a suddenly decent CSU team coming in. The Raiders have been solid lately and could have been on a four-game winning streak, but they fell to Milwaukee at home by one point. They fared better against the Norse in a huge game, 69-67, that got them the tie at the top of the standings. This will be Wright State’s fourth straight game at home.

The Raiders pulled through in their last win by hitting 49.1 percent of their shots. They went a meager 3-for-16 from downtown and converted a weak 12-for-17 from the free throw line, but it was all enough to grab a win. They were led by Loudon Love (12.5 ppg), who hit a team-high 15 points, tied a high of six rebounds, and went 7-for-12 from the field. He’s now scored 14 or more points in seven of his last eight games and has really stepped up in conference play.

Trends

Cleveland State is:

  • 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games
  • 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games after a double-digit loss at home

Wright State is:

  • 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Monday games
  • 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games against teams with a losing road record

The problem with the Raiders is even though they’ve been more successful this season overall, they haven’t been so good against the spread. Not only have the Vikings been solid over the last three weeks, but they are reliable ATS on the road this season (9-6).
