Horizon League heats up

Two of the four Horizon League openers last night went into OT. Recently, we talked about Steven Davis’ potential to lead Wright State to league success, but today he underperformed (13 points, 5-14 FG) in a 81-62 loss to Oakland. To compete with a Sherron Dorsey-Walker (25 points) and a good Golden Grizzlies’ team, he needed to be better. Green Bay fell behind Cleveland State but managed to pull out a win in OT behind Charles Cooper’s 19 points. Youngstown State survived against Milwaukee in OT thanks to Cameron Morse’s 33 points.
