NOTABLES: The Lake Erie College men's basketball team is back on the road, opening a four-game Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) roadtrip against Tiffin University Thursday (Jan. 24) before heading to Ohio Dominican University Saturday (Jan. 26). The Storm (5-10, 2-9 GLIAC) are looking to snap a three-game losing streak after falling to Hillsdale College (59-52) and the University of Findlay (83-68) last weekend. Junior guard Riley Thomas (Cardington, Ohio/Cardington-Lincoln) is leading the Storm this year with 12.8 ppg... redshirt-sophomore Jamil Dudley (Massillon, Ohio/Massillon) is second in the GLIAC in three-point percentage, draining 51.9% of his attempts this season... sophomore Trey Howard (Lima, Ohio/Lima Shawnee) had a career high two blocks against the University of Findlay... the Storm has missed junior forward Rich Austin (Cleveland, Ohio/St. Ignatius) on the offensive front while he has sat the past four games due to injury... the Storm is second in the GLIAC in forced turnovers (16.5) and steals (9.2), trailing only Tiffin in each category. Tiffin (6-12, 3-9 GLIAC) enters Thursday's contest on a three-game losing streak but Joe Graessle has been on fire, scoring 47, 37 and 26 points in those three-games and is second in the GLIAC with 23.8 ppg... Ohio Dominican (3-14, 0-12) is looking for their first conference win this season, hosting Ashland University on Thursday before playing LEC Saturday... Morgan Jones leads the Panthers with 16.5 ppg.

UP NEXT FOR LEC: The Storm wrap-up their four-game roadtrip next weekend at Saginaw Valley State University on Thursday, Jan. 30, and Ashland University on Saturday, Feb. 2.
