The Horizon League has been a tough row to hoe for Youngstown State, the second-newest member. The Penguins made progress in 2008-09 with a 7-11 conference slate, but they fell back last winter, winning only two conference games. Youngstown lost 14 of its last 15 games in a season that began with optimism and ended painfully.
