The average attendance for the nine Horizon League programs at home is 2,448. … Miles Dixon leads the Raiders in total points scored (153). He’s averaging 10.2 points per game off the bench.

About Cleveland State: The Vikings opened Horizon Leage play with a 74-50 loss at Valparaiso and then beat Illinois-Chicago 60-50 on Monday. That was their first victory over a Division I team since Dec. 1 when they beat Toledo 78-73. They had victories over Rio Grande, of the NAIA, and Division II Notre Dame College in December. … Cleveland State has won six games in a row in the series. That includes a regular-season sweep the last two seasons, a second-round victory in the Horizon League tournament in 2011 and a win in the second game of the series in the 2009-10 season. … The Vikings lost sophomore forward Anton Grady, a second-team preseason all-conference selection who was averaging 13.7 points per game, to a torn meniscus after six games. He will likely miss the rest of the season.

Coach Billy Donlon on Cleveland State: “Cleveland State had a great win (Monday) against Illinois-Chicago. They’re back to playing Gary Waters basketball with their defense and their pressure. They held UIC to 21 in the first half. It’ll be another war. Our league has got a lot of parity in it. You’ve got to do everything you can do defend your home court.”
