SETTING THE SCENE
The Vikings will close out their annual Wisconsin roadswing this Saturday (Feb. 16), traveling to Milwaukee for a 3:00 p.m. EST contest against the Panthers. Entering the weekend CSU stands at 12-12 on the season and 4-7 in league play after dropping a tough road contest at Green Bay (Feb. 14) last time out. Milwaukee has the slight advantage in the overall series (22-21), but the Vikings have won seven out of the last 10 matchups against the Panthers.
WINTON ON THE REBOUNDING CHARTS
After reaching the 1,000-rebound mark for her career last Monday, Shalonda Winton is also closing in on becoming the all-time leader at Cleveland State - just 16 boards shy of moving into first place. With at least five games left in the 2012-13 season, Winton needs to average 3.2 rebounds per contest to become the all-time leader at CSU.
COLEMAN ECLIPSES 300 POINT MARK
Following a 17-point performance at Green Bay on Thursday, Cori Coleman eclipsed the 300-point mark for the season, entering Saturday's contest with 308 points. Coleman, who is one of three Vikings to average double-digit points (12.8 ppg), has 552 points on her career - including 78 three-pointers.
...COLEMAN FROM BEHIND THE ARC
With 47 three-pointers so far this season, Cori Coleman is closing in on CSU's single season top-10 list - needing just eight more made three-pointers to rank ninth all-time in single season three-pointers. Coleman is averaging 1.9 three-pointers per contest, and has converted at least two shots from behind the arc in 15 games this year, including a career-high five at UIC (Jan. 9).
WINTON NOTCHES 100 ASSISTS FOR THE SEASON
With four assists at Green Bay Thursday, Shalonda Winton reached the 100-assist mark for the season - the only Horizon League player to reach the mark so far this year. Winton ranks third in the leauge averaging 4.2 assists per game, and has recorded four or more assists in 11 games this season.
VIKINGS WITH THE BLOCK
Cleveland State posted a season-high nine blocks against UIC Monday (Feb. 11), including a career-high five from Shalonda Winton. The nine blocks is also the best mark of the season in Horizon League contests only, while the Vikings now rank fourth averaging 2.6 blocks in league games only.
WINTON NOTCHES 1,000th CAREER REBOUND
Shalonda Winton became just the second player in program history to record 1,000 rebounds on their career Monday (Feb. 11), entering the Milwaukee contest with 1,015 after grabbing nine against UIC and 11 at Green Bay. Winton, who became the all-time leader in offensive rebounds at CSU earlier this season, has led the Vikings in rebounding during 21 games this season, including a season-high 17 boards at Nevada (Nov. 23).
The Vikings will close out their brief three-game roadswing next Thursday (Feb. 21), traveling to Youngstown State for a 7:05 p.m. contest.
