With Wednesday’s victory at Loyola, Cleveland State coach Gary Waters recorded his 350th career win. Waters, 64, is now 350-268 (56.6 percent) in his 20-year career as a head coach.

Waters, in his 10th season at Cleveland State, is 179-134 (57.2 percent). He has led the Vikings to six postseason appearances.

The Vikings reached the 2009 NCAA Tournament, where they upset No. 4 seed Wake Forest in the first round before being eliminated by No. 12 Arizona two days later. Waters has also guided the program to three NITs and two CITs.

With the Vikings sitting at 3-7 in non-conference play, a seventh postseason bid this March is unlikely. They continue their preparation for Horizon League play Saturday against Belmont.
