INDIANIAPOLIS, IN--- The Vikings have advanced to the Horizon League championship with a 93-80 win over Milwaukee Monday night. Just one win away from advancing to the NCAA tournament. The Vikings were in control the entire game, not trailing for the full duration of the contest.
The Vikings will play the Northern Kentucky Norse Tuesday night at 7 for the Horizon League championship. The Vikings have been in this position for the past 3 seasons now, playing in Indianapolis, now just one win away from advancing to the NCAA tournament under first year head coach Daniyal Robinson. The Vikings started off the game with no time to waste, Drew Lowder winning the jump ball quickly got the Vikes off to a 2-0 lead, that would eventually stretch to a 10-0 run with just under 2 minutes into the game. Milwaukee was sloppy with the ball in the first half, turning it over 4 times within the first few minutes, totaling 11 turnovers on the night. CSU would later go on another 10-0 run in the half that was sparked by Tae Williams, the Vikings had a high amount of energy to start off. Enaruna would score 24 points, but would only play 25 minutes due to foul trouble, that leads me to talk about Ramar Pryor, who was a sparkplug for the Vikings all game. Pryor would finish with 10 points, 2 rebounds and made 5 of his 7 field goal attempts. The fast break was what really worked for the Vikings especially in the first half, scoring 32 of their points off the fast break.
The Vikings would lead the game by double digits for a majority of the game, 18 minutes of the first half. Speaking of double figures, the Vikings would have 5 players in double figures Tae Williams with 18, Tristan Enaruna with 24, Deshon Parker with 14, Yahel Hill with 11, and Ramar Pryor with 10.
