Storm Set to Host Mercyhurst (Preview)

PAINESVILLE, Ohio – The Lake Erie College men's basketball team will be in action Wednesday (Nov. 22) when they host Mercyhurst, with the game set to tip at 1 p.m.

Storm Report:  The Storm is 2-2 on the season, and coming off a hard fought loss in an exhibition to Division-I Bowling Green State University, 109-106.  Head Coach Kyle Conley said, "We need to be efficient on offense to score against one of the top defenses in the nation".

Opposition Position: The Lakers are a perfect 3-0 on the season, and coming off a win over Millersville, 69-55.  Coach Conley added, "They want to impose their will.  They will grind you offensively, and play a physical style of defense".

Coach Conley concluded, "We need to play with toughness on both ends of the court.  This will be a very different game than the one we just played against Bowling Green, as points will be hard to come by for both teams".

Forecast: Lake Erie will return to the court Saturday (Nov. 25) when they travel to take on Edinboro, with the game set to tip at 3 p.m.
