Defense was not in the game plan tonight as Cleveland State wins 92-85 over the Golden Grizzlies

One game removed from setting the career 3-point record, Travis Bader decided his shooting slump would come to a halt.  Unfortunately for Oakland, his 36 points were not enough to overcome Charlie Lee and the Cleveland State Vikings.

A total of 29 3-pointers were made Thursday night, with Bader connecting on 10 of his 13 attempts and Lee making 6 of 8 downtown shots. There was a lot of hot shooting with seven players scoring in double digits and both teams shooting a combined 56.8 percent overall.

Twice Oakland jumped out to big leads, a nine-point lead with 10 minutes remaining in the first half and again at the 12-minute mark in the second half. But Charlie Lee had 12 points over the final five minutes and the Vikings were able to end the game on a 17-5 run.

Lee led the way for the Vikings with 31 points, six assists and went 11-for-11 from the free throw line. He was helped by 19 points and six rebounds from senior forward Jon Harris.  Sophomore guard Trey Lewis added 16 points and five assists.

Oakland got 21 points and five assists off the bench from Dante Williams and freshman guard Kahlil Felder added seven points and 10 assists.

Cleveland State is now in second place in the conference with a 7-3 record and 16-9 overall.  Oakland fell to 4-6 and 7th place in the Horizon League, and 9-16 overall.
