Radio: WYLL 1160-AM

The skinny: Loyola reopens Horizon League play without junior forward Leon Young, who contracted pneumonia during winter break and was hospitalized near his home in California. Young, who leads the Ramblers in rebounding (7.1) and ranks second in scoring (12.7), will fly back to Chicago today. He will miss tonight's game as well as Saturday's contest at Youngstown State, and he's doubtful to return Monday against No. 16 Butler. Transfer Justin Cerasoli has made an immediate impact with Loyola, averaging 15.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4 assists in his first three games. Junior forward J'Nathan Bullock (14.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg) leads a much-improved Cleveland State squad, which has wins against South Florida and Florida State this season.
