CLEVELAND - Cleveland State freshman guard Bryn Forbes has been selected the Horizon League Newcomer of the Week.

The 6-foot-3-inch Forbes, who comes to the Vikings from Lansing, Michigan, where he played for 2-time state champion Sexton High School, earned the honor by averaging 16.7 points in three games, climaxed by his 21 points in a 74-62 win over visiting Detroit.

Forbes, who scored 14 in a 60-50 win over UIC and tallied another 15 in a 69-53 loss at Wright State, had a tremendous first half against Detroit, scoring 19 of his team high 21 points on 5-of-7 from behind the 3-point arc before intermission.

His 19 points allowed Cleveland State to take a 43-35 lead over the Titans, who entered the game with a 3-0 mark in the Horizon League. It is the second time this season Forbes has won the award.

Cleveland State, 2-2 in league play and 10-8 overall, is off to Wisconsin, where the Vikings play Milwaukee (4-13 overall, 0-3 in Horizon League) on Thursday and at Green Bay (8-9, 2-2) on Saturday. The Vikings return home Wednesday (Jan. 23) to host Loyola (10-6, 1-3).

Cleveland State basketball can be heard on WHKW-AM 1220, the home of the Vikings, where Al Pawlowski serves as play-by-play host.
