Cleveland State to play some games in Cavaliers’ arena


CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland State has partnered with Quicken Loans Arena and will have its basketball teams play some home games on the Cavaliers’ court next season.

The university’s men’s team will play five games next season at the Q against schools with large alumni bases in the area. Those dates are to be announced, but Cleveland State’s goal in aligning with the arena is to heighten the program’s profile and bring more fans to games at Wolstein Center on campus.

As part of the multiyear agreement, Quicken Loans will handle the booking of concerts and events at Wolstein Center.

The Vikings averaged just over 2,200 fans last season at Wolstein, which has a capacity of 13,600.

Cleveland State plays in the Horizon League, the same league as Wright State University. It was not yet determined whether Wright State would play its road game at Quicken Arena or at the Wolstein Center.
