Loyola-Chicago knocks CSU out of Horizon tournament

Published: Sat, March 8, 2003 @ 12:00 a.m.


CHICAGO -- David Bailey's 23 points helped Loyola of Chicago overcome poor shooting as it beat Cleveland State 69-57 in the first-round of the Horizon League Tournament on Tuesday night.

The win advanced the Ramblers (16-15) to the second round on Friday, where they will face Detroit.

The Ramblers were cold in the first half, making just 10-of-34 from the field and missing all 11 3-point attempts. But with the Rambler's fierceness at the boards coupled with Cleveland State's (8-22) own poor shooting, Loyola ended the half with a 25-21 lead.

After Tahric Gosley of Cleveland State scored with 14:49 left in the game to tie the score at 34, Loyola went on a 10-0 scoring run.

Corey Minnifield hit a short jumper and Bailey drove for three lay-ups in a row and made a pair of free throws to put the Ramblers ahead 44-34.

Cleveland State never came closer than seven points after that.

Tahric Gosley led Cleveland State with 16 points.

Detroit 78, Wright St. 61

DETROIT -- Terrell Riggs scored a career-high 28 points and league player of the year Willie Green added 20 as Detroit defeated Wright State 78-61 in Tuesday's opening round of the Horizon League tournament.

With the first-round win, No. 5-seeded Detroit advances to face Loyola of Chicago on Friday in Milwaukee.

Seth Doliba and Vernard Hollins had 25 points apiece for Wright State (10-18), but were the only players to reach double figures for the team.
