    Cleveland, Ohio - The UIC men's basketball team jumped on host Cleveland State early on Saturday evening and never looked back, posting its sixth straight win with a 67-56 triumph over the Vikings at the CSU Convocation Center.

    The Flames (18-7) now sit in a third place tie in the Horizon League with Wright State at 9-4. UIC will get a chance to move into second place on Wednesday when it wraps up a three-game road trip at UW-Green Bay.

    On Saturday, the Flames forced the issue in the early going versus Cleveland State, running off the games first 10 points and building a 20-point lead late in the first half.

    The Vikings (4-21, 0-14) closed the gap to 15 at halftime and would get as close as six in the second half.

    UIC senior Cedrick Banks, who was limited to a team-high tying 13 points due to foul trouble, netted his lone three-pointer of the game, though, with 2:49 left that put the Flames ahead to stay, 62-52.

    Senior Aaron Carr, who spelled Banks, also scored 13 points while pulling down eight rebounds. Armond Williams (12 points) and Joe Scott (11 points) were also in double figures for UIC.

    Jermaine Robinson scored 25 points and Omari Westley added 15 for the Vikings, who lost their 19th straight.
