With Valparaiso losing Monday night in overtime at Wisconsin-Green Bay, 81-80, Cleveland State once again controls its own destiny for the No. 1 seed and homefield advantage throughout the Horizon League tournament.
That's if CSU (23-6, 12-4 Horizon League) can win its final two home games against Wisconsin-Milwaukee (16-12, 11-5) Thursday and Green Bay (12-16, 7-9) Saturday.
If they do that, then CSU will win the regular season championship outright and they will host the Horizon League tournament next week at the Wolstein Center, where they are 14-1 on the season. The Vikings would only be two home games away from playing in the NCAA Tournament.
With the loss, Valpo (20-9, 11-5) drops down to third-place, a game back of CSU. Butler (20-9, 12-5) moves up to second-place, a half-game back of the Vikings.
