CSU men's basketball headed to Horizon League championship, vying for spot in NCAA Tournament

There's a basketball team on our radar, and it's not the Cavaliers.

The Cleveland State Vikings, with only nine wins and a whopping 22 losses this regular season, are in the midst of an amazing comeback story that could take them as far as the NCAA Tournament.

CSU is the No. 8 seed in the Horizon League and is in the Horizon League Tournament championship Tuesday night. The winner of this game will get a spot in the NCAA Tournament, which begins Sunday.

The Vikings played the No. 1 seed, Northern Kentucky, on Saturday and beat the team by nine points. They followed that win by beating the No. 4 seed, Oakland, on Monday, hitting a shot to win the game by one point.

CSU will take on the No. 2 seed Tuesday night at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit at 7 p.m. Students and fans loaded up on buses Tuesday afternoon to head to the game to show their support for their team.

If the Vikings win tonight, they'll be part of your March Madness bracket! Go Vikings!
