The end game: Cleveland State wanted to go into the Horizon League Tournament on a roll.

Now the Vikings (14-16, 9-8) are looking to show a spark of life in conference play at the end of the season. After Thursday's setback to Detroit, CSU has been on the south side of four straight Horizon games, scoring 59, 59, 54 and 54 points in those defeats.

The Vikings will need to pull an upset against Wright State (19-10, 12-5 Horizon) at the Wolstein Center to control their destiny for a Tuesday home-court game in the league tournament. The Raiders defeated CSU, 73-64, in the first league game of the season Dec. 3.
