Cleveland State Offering Free Ride and Tickets to About 250 People for Tonight's Horizon League Championship Game

Got that Viking fever? Free this afternoon and evening? Want to watch your Cinderella CSU squad play for the Horizon League championship and an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament in person in Detroit?

Then get thee to the Wolstein Center in a few hours where five chartered buses will line up beginning at 2:30 p.m. thanks to Cleveland State, which is providing free rides and tickets to about 250 people on a first-come first-serve basis.

For those of you who might not have been paying attention, the Vikings slogged through a miserable regular season, their third in a row that failed to eclipse even 10 wins. Since then, however, the 8th-seed Vikes have put together a spirited streak in the Horizon League tournament, knocking off top-seeded Northern Kentucky, Youngstown State and Oakland. At 7 p.m. tonight, they tip off against 2nd-seed Wright State at Detroit's new pizzarena.

The game will also be on ESPN, if you can't make the trip.
