On fire: Cleveland State is 10-1 thanks, in part, to the recent eruption of Trevon Harmon. The senior guard, named the Horizon League Player of the Week, snapped out of a slow start in a big way.
In the past two games, the Pasadena, Calif., native has 40 points. He has made 13 of 23 shots, including eight of 14 3-pointers. The Vikings needed his output to get past Robert Morris, 62-58, and Akron, 69-66.
Previously, Harmon had shot better than 50 percent in a game just once this season. He was 7-of-13 against the Colonials, 6-of-10 against the Zips.
CSU next plays Monday at South Florida.

The Spartans' guards, meanwhile, are still adjusting to one another.
Sophomore Keith Appling was moved to point guard this season. Travis Trice, who also plays the point, is a true freshman.
Branden Dawson and Brandan Kearney are freshmen as well, and Brandon Wood is in his first year at MSU after transferring from Valparaiso.
The other perimeter player, fifth-year senior Austin Thornton, has been in a horrible shooting slump, hitting 26.7 percent from the field and 13.3 percent from three-point range.
