Forlorn Cavs fans turn to Cleveland State
By Diamond Leung
If there's a good basketball team in Cleveland, it's Cleveland State coach Gary Waters who has it, as the Vikings are the only 12-0 team in Division I college basketball.
With the LeBron-less Cavaliers in last place in their division, that's apparently giving fans just another reason to turn their attention to the Horizon League hopefuls.
"The Cavaliers have 'Cavaliers' across their chest," Waters told
. "We have Cleveland on our chest. So we represent Cleveland also."
As one fan at the Wolstein Center told the station, "What's the Cavs' record and what's the CSU record?"
Another said: "We have an undefeated team here, so people should definitely come out and support us and forget about LeBron and get over him."
The Vikings face their largest challenge of the season when they go on the road to play West Virginia on Saturday afternoon, with the Cavs playing at home later that evening.
But even with Cleveland State in Morgantown, W.Va., fans will be able to follow along since
Fox Sports Ohio is excitedly televising the game
After all, if the Vikings can pull off a win there, it'll be a game definitely worth witnessing.
