CLEVELAND - Cleveland State (7-6) closed out its non-conference schedule
with a convincing, 101-74, win today over Belmont (4-8) this evening in
Goodman Arena. It marked the first time the Vikings scored 100 points in
a game since defeating Chicago State 106-58 on Nov. 16, 1998.
Junior center Kim Brockway (Marine City, Mich./Marine City) led all
players with 19 points (on 9-of-10 shooting) and five blocks. Sophomore
guard Erika Roudebush (Noblesville, Ind,/Hamilton Southeastern) added 14
points off the bench, while sophomore forward Nicole Baptiste
(Beavercreek, Ohio/Beavercreek) finished with a career-high 12 points.
Junior forward Candice Mitchell's 18 points and seven rebounds paced
the Bruins. Sophomore guard Natalie Brown added 14 points and a
career-high nine assists.
The Vikings led 52-45 at half as they shot 58 percent in the opening
stanza. For the game, CSU shot 50 percent from the floor and knocked
down a season-high 14 three-pointers as nine different players hit
triples. The Vikings out-scored the Bruins 36-20 in the paint and
received 47 points from the bench.
"After a five-game road trip, it was nice to come home and play the
way we did," noted CSU head coach Duffy Burns. "If we could score 100
every game it would make coaching a lot easier."
Cleveland State is in action again on Thursday, Jan. 11 when it
travels to UW-Milwaukee to open the MCC slate.
