CLEVELAND, Ohio - With 18 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists Shalonda Winton recorded her second triple-double of the season, as she led the Cleveland State women's basketball team to a 70-51 victory over Lake Erie Sunday afternoon. The win improved the Vikings to 8-4 on the season, while also extending their win streak to seven games and giving them a perfect 6-0 record during the month of December.

Winton, who recorded her first triple-double against Miami (Ohio) on Dec. 8, is now the third player in program history to have two triple-doubles on their career, joining Ashley Schrock and Sue Koziol.

Along with Winton, Imani Gordon also tallied double-digits for CSU, posting 12 points and three rebounds. Cori Coleman added eight points and a career-high five steals, while Honesty King recorded six points and six rebounds and Kaila Montgomery posted six points and seven boards.

After getting out to a slow start, Cleveland State went on a 14-0 run beginning at the 13:24 mark of the first half, gaining a 17-point advantage (25-8) which they would never relinquish. Over the next 3:05 CSU went on a 6-4 run to gain their largest lead of the half at 31-12 with 6:24 left to play. The Vikings were able to hold on to the double-digit lead for the rest of the half, going into the break with a 14-point lead at 38-24.

To open the second half, Lake Erie went on a 6-2 run bringing the score within 10 points at 40-30, but that would be as close as they would get as CSU responded with 11 straight points to put its lead back to 51-30.

The Vikings were able to gain a 20-point advantage two more times throughout the final 10:29 - on a Winton layup (55-34) and on a Jasmine Flanagan three-pointer (62-42). CSU closed out the contest with eight points from three different players in the final 2:49, earning the 70-51 victory.

As a team, CSU shot 52-percent from the floor (28-for-53), including a .577 clip (15-for-26) during the first half. The Vikings recorded 22 assists on their 28 made field goals along with a season-high 17 steals.

Next up for Cleveland State is a 6:00 p.m. contest against Butler on Thursday (Jan. 3). This will be the 40th meeting between the two schools, but the first as a non-league matchup.
