CLEVELAND, Ohio- The UIC men's basketball team takes on Cleveland State this Saturday, Jan. 9 at 4:30 p.m. Central in a game televised live on Comcast SportsNet Chicago.
The game between the Flames (5-10, 1-4 Horizon League) and the Vikings (6-10, 2-2 Horizon League) will also air live on ESPN Radio 1000 AM, with Adam Levinson and Kenny Williams on the call.
