Edwards, Vikings cruise past Cedarville


CLEVELAND – – Rob Edwards is no ordinary Horizon League freshman and the Cleveland State guard proved it yet again Tuesday night.

Edwards scored a career-high 21 points and tied the CSU single-game record with 5-of-5 shooting on 3-pointers, as the Vikings blew by visiting Cedarville 77-37.

Edwards finished 8-of-10 overall and along with his hot shooting, pulled down a career-high nine rebounds.

Kenny Carpenter added 14 points and a career-high nine assists off the bench for the Vikings (5-8), while Daniel Levitt scored 11 points and grabbed a career-best seven rebounds.

Jibri Blount finished with 10 points, five rebounds and three steals to help the CSU bench outscore Cedarville’s bench 37-9.

“We were able to use a lot of bodies today and run fresh legs at them,” Vikings coach Gary Waters said. “We didn’t start the game with a lot of energy and I thought the guys off the bench came in and brought some life to us.”

Easton Bazzolli led the Division II Yellow Jackets with 11 points.
