News On The Horizon 2/12/2014

Saturday Notes – February 8, 2014--Hoopville
Milwaukee 73, Green Bay 63: Just the second Horizon League loss for Green Bay knocks their lead down to a game when combined with Cleveland State’s win.

Cleveland State 72, Wright State 68: Cleveland State is trying to keep up with Green Bay in the Horizon League and does so with this win in Dayton. That completes an unusual four-game road stretch in conference play (with a non-conference game at Eastern Illinois mixed in) where they won all four of them. Now they come home for four straight, including a possible showdown against Green Bay next Saturday.

Green Bay didn't have a real at-large shot anyway, but this loss could cost them the 1 seed in the Horizon League tournament. Cleveland State is now only one game back in the standings, and will get Green Bay on their home court next Saturday. Milwaukee is now within a half game of third place in the Horizon League. Third place earns a bye into the quarterfinals at the Horizon tournament.

Toney Douglas could make case for Heat defense--South Florida Sun Sentinel
Acquired Jan. 15 in the three-team trade that sent Joel Anthony to the Boston Celtics, Douglas sets up as the third point guard behind Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole, having already replaced Roger Mason Jr. on the active list on most nights. At 6 feet 2, he has a stocky enough build to also defend shooting guards.

Ducks lose a wild one at ASU--The Register-Guard
Calliste took a hard fall and landed on his back while hitting his head on the floor. Calliste got up and as he tried to walk-off his pain, he got into a dispute with some fans in the student section and had to have Oregon officials take him back near the bench.
Moser started a run of six straight Oregon points and later the Ducks scored nine straight to close within 53-49 on back-to-back three-pointers by Young. Shaquielle McKissic put ASU (18-6, 7-4) ahead 59-54 on a pair of free throws with 6:19 to go, but Young drove for a dunk and Calliste hit a three-pointer to tie the game 59-59 with 5:39 to play. Loyd added two free throws as Oregon capped a 32-9 run to take a 61-59 lead with 5:18 left in the game.

From Youngstown State, Kendrick Perry, the all-around threat. No player does everything for his team quite like Kendrick Perry, and he will need to do it for the Mid-Major Five. I consistently believe that he is overlooked by most of the country because the Penguins don't have enough around him to compete in the Horizon League. We get to showcase Perry a little more.
