(PAINESVILLE, Ohio) – Tomorrow's game between Lake Erie and Central State will have a special theme as students from one of the College's sports management classes are doing a "Takeover For Charity." It will be a 'Green/Neon Out' at the Osborne as the Storm search for a second consecutive win on Wednesday.
Faculty and students are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food or cash donation for a chance to participate in a halftime shootout. A raffle will also be held to include various prizes. All donations will be given to the First Church Congregational to help people in need within the community.
The Storm recently came off of a 77-67 win at Wayne State where Gabe Kynard led a quartet of Lake Erie players in double-figures with 23 points. David Dunnigan came off the bench to also score 11 and lead the team with six rebounds.
The Marauders visit Lake Erie with a record of 0-2 after splitting a rare home-and-home series with Christian Brothers University. Central State opened the season at home with a 78-56 loss before heading to Memphis, Tenn., for an 86-76 defeat.
Kynard is the early season leader for Storm scoring with 19.5 points per game. Erron James and Brogan Scott follow with 8.0 apiece. Mitch Loomis has been crashing the boards hard and tops the team with 7.0 rebounds a game.
On the opposite end, Central State counters with Chris Scott who has scored 17.4 points per game. He's also the top rebounded with 7.9 caroms a game.
A second theme night is also planned for the Storm's next home game on Saturday with Edinboro. It will be "Jersey Day" as the Storm host the Fighting Scots for a 3 p.m. tip-off.
