Cleveland State has big letdown in front of a big crowd
Back to Main MenuCelebrationsFraud PreventionManage Your AdPlace an AdIt was about 20 minutes after his Cleveland State basketball team was spanked, 68 54, by Wisconsin Green Bay. It was a game where CSU was behind, 16 2, after seven minutes, a game where Green Bay had a 23 point lead in the second half."This hurt," said the CSU coach. "We had an opportunity to change the league around."Waters was hoping for a way to bring the Horizon League tournament to Cleveland, and knocking off first place Green Bay would have been a huge step in that direction. Instead, Green Bay now leads the league with an 11 2 record, the Vikings in second at 9 4.Waters has put up a new goal for his team second in the regular season. The top two teams receive automatic bids to the Horizon League's final four which will probably be played in Green Bay.But there was another factor."This was an opportunity to play in front of a lot of people," said Waters. "It was a chance to sell ourselves we didn't sell ourselves."The Wolstein Center crowd of 4,033 was their largest of the season, double their usual home gathering.So much went wrong, even before the game. Leading scorer Bryn Forbes (16.1 points) came down with the stomach flu and landed in the hospital."(Friday night), he was fine," said Waters. "He had a great practice. We talked for a long time after the team meal. And then the next morning, he was throwing up."Furthermore, Green Bay is 22 5 overall. The Phoenix beat Virginia (75 72) and lost a 69 66 verdict at Wisconsin. They have a legitimate NBA prospect in 7 foot 1 Alec Brown, who scored 18 points and had nine rebounds. He's very thin at 245 pounds, but is a 40 percent shooter from 3 point range. He blocks 3.1 shots per game.He likely will be a second roundround cheap Ravens jersey

the next level," said Waters. "You got a 7 foot 1 guy knocking down 3's. Not many guys can do that."CSU had 10 shots blocked, as driving into thethe cheap china Ravens jerseys free shipping
heart of the Green Bay zone was a frustrating experience. The Phoenix rank No. 2 in all of Division I basketball in blocked shots which is why opponents are shooting only 39 percent this season.Junior point guard Keifer Sykes (18 points, three assists, one turnover) easily broke CSU's press. He also harassed CSU point guard Charlie Lee into six ugly points on 2 of 11 shooting.It was easy to see why Green Bay is 22 5. It looked like some of the old Butler teams that ruled the Horizon for more than decade."This game was so out of character for us," said Waters. "We couldn't make a shot.

Anton (Grady, eight points, five rebounds, five fouls) was in foul trouble all day there were times when I wondered what team was out there."
