Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Youngstown State men's basketball team opens the New Year in the wind city with a pair of conference games.

They play at Illinois-Chicago Wednesday night and then at Loyola on Saturday.

The Penguins have had their trouble with the Flames. They've lost 22 of the 29 games in the series but split with them last year.

Jerry Slocum's teams have struggled in conference openers winning only once in 11 tries.

The Penguins are on a roll winning five of their last six games, including two in a row.

The Flames are one of the surprise teams so far, they have a nine and four record.
