Game 9: 5 Butler vs. 2 Cleveland State
Winner: Cleveland State- Cleveland State finished off the regular season with two wins. Before those two wins they were on a 5 game losing streak. During those 5 losses they were with all around player D. Brown. Brown is a senior leader on the team as well as a great defender. With Brown back and freshman Anton Grady getting a rest because of the bye I think the Vikings will come out the Horizon League champs.
Sleeper Team: Butler-The Bulldogs seem to turn it up a notch come tournament time. The Butler defense has been there this year, its the offense that has struggled at times. If the Bulldogs find their offensive game they will compete for the Horizon League title.
