PAINESVILLE, Ohio – The Lake Erie College men's basketball team will be in action this Thursday (Jan. 19th) and Saturday (Jan. 21st) when they host Ashland University, and travel to take on the University of Findlay respectively. 

Storm Report: The Storm is coming off a week in which they split a pair of games.  They defeated Tiffin on the road and fell to Walsh.  Head Coach Kyle Conley said "Sean Howard (Indianapolis, Ind. / Lawrence North) and Brogan Scott (Wadsworth, Ohio / Highland) have been consistent players for us over the past two weeks.  We need to play with poise and confidence to come away with a pair of wins this week". 

Opposition Position:  The Eagles are 10-6 overall and 5-5 in the conference.  Coach Conley said "Ashland is a veteran team with plenty of talent.  They are tough defensive minded guys".  The Oilers are 12-4 overall and 6-3 in conference play.  "Findlay is one of the toughest places to play, their guys play with great energy at home.  Coach Ernst mixes up his defensives to try to keep you out of rhythm offensively" said Coach Conley. 

Forecast: Lake Erie will be back in action Thursday (Jan. 26) when they host Hillsdale, with the game set to tip at 7:30 p.m.
