A visit to Chicago to play an Illinois-Chicago team that was winless in the Horizon League was the right place at the right time for Cleveland State and the Vikings did the right thing on Wednesday with 74-64 win behind 20 points from Bryn Forbes.

The Vikings, who moved to 4-3 in the HL with the win, led from wire to wire and got another 18 points from Jon Harris while Trey Lewis added 16 and Anton Grady tallied 12. The win moved the Vikings into third place behind Green Bay (6-0) and Wright State (5-2) with a 2 p.m. Saturday date against Valparaiso for Cleveland State in the wings. The Crusaders were 3-2.

Harris, who played 36 minutes off the Vikings bench, had his second career double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Both Forbes and Harris were 4-for-5 from behind the 3-point arc in leading the Cleveland State offense.

Jake Weigand with 17 points and Jay Parker with 10 kept the Flames in the game but UIC fell to 0-6 in league play and 5-15 overall with their ninth straight loss that includes tough losses to both Green Bay and Wright State in recent outings.

Cleveland State, which led 29-23 at intermission, opened up its largest lead of the night at 51-38 behind one of Harris' 3-pointers. The win gave the Vikings a 2-2 road record in HL games, having lost at Green Bay and Youngstown State and grabbing a win at Milwaukee.
