Horizon Saturday: Cleveland State (7-17, 2-9) will retire the numbers of former players Norris Cole and Kailey Klein in ceremonies during the men's/women's doubleheader that begins with the men's game at 1. Both players led the Vikings to the NCAA Tournament in their careers.

Both CSU teams could use their help now, particularly the men who have had their talent shredded by transfers. Three players (Bryn Forbes/Michigan State, Anton Grady/Wichita State, Trey Lewis/Louisville) over the last two seasons have been the most costly.

Oakland (16-8, 8-3) has had just the opposite issue as major transfers into the program over the last two seasons had the Grizzlies expecting to be one of the top teams in the conference.

Oakland's overall record is starting to trend up, but the talent speaks for itself, including Kahlil Felder (25.6 points, 8.8 assists) who is challenging to be the leading scorer in the nation and has been tops in assists already. Two games behind leader Valparaiso in the HL Standings is not insurmountable.
