Ball State vs Cleveland State

Cleveland State outshoots Ball State 78-55


CLEVELAND (AP) Trey Lewis scored 23 points and Cleveland State opened the gates in the second half sending Ball State home with a 78-55 loss on Saturday night.

Cleveland State was up by seven (39-32) at halftime and shooting a whopping 62 percent but Ball State was still able to stay close by putting up more shots than the more methodical Vikings and making more free throws.

Cleveland State (4-3), who narrowly lost to Kentucky on Monday, finished the night shooting 63 percent and continued hitting the higher percentage short jumpers and inside the paint shots. The Cardinals (3-3) got no closer than four points at the beginning of the second half before Cleveland State ran away with it increasing the lead to 23 at the buzzer.

Chris Bond netted 17 points and Majok Majok matched his rebound average of 11 in the game for the Cardinals.
