The Green Bay Phoenix tangle with the Milwaukee Panthers at the U.S. Cellular Arena.
Green Bay is well armed to contend with the rest of the Horizon with an offense that can score with anyone and a defense that controls the scoreboard. Both have been alive and well during a seven game winning streak that was capped off by 98-62 rout of Chicago State. The Phoenix virtually the entire boxscore with 56% from the floor enough to handle the Cougars 34%. Keifer Sykes and Alec Brown were the one, two punch of the offense with 21 and 20 points while Greg Mays added 19 points and seven yanks and Carrington Love chipped in with ten.

I don't know what Milwaukee does from here going forward but after the past few years this season has been nothing short of remarkable. The score first panthers squeeze just enough defense out to be successful which describes their 84-75 decision at Oakland although the D held the Golden Grizzlies to just 32% shooting on their own floor while nailing hallf their looks. Oakland did force 17 turnovers to manage 14 more looks but the Panthers hot shooting prevailed. Steve McWhorter led the scoring spree with 17 points and nine pulls with Kyle Kelm and Matt Tiby tossing in 15 points each and grabbing 17 rebounds while Austin Arians and Cody Wichmann netted 13 points apiece.
I think Green Bay is the class of the Horizon and Milwaukee is easily the most improved team. Seems like this is a game the Phoenix need to have...
