The Horizon title is up for grabs when the Wright State Raiders and Milwaukee Panthers take the floor on Tuesday.

The Panthers 45% shooting was huge with the Phoenix checking in at 35% which made a six field goal difference. Leading scorer Jordan Aaron pumped in 28 points followed by Matt Tiby and his 15 point, ten pull effort while Kyle Kelm and Austin Arians tossed in 14 and 12 points respectively.

Wright State was picked by many to capture the Horizon title but that didn't happen but now the Raiders have a chance to redeem themselves in the conference playoffs. The Raiders knocked off a solid Cleveland State 68-63 for win number six in a row where both ends of the floor have executed to near perfection. Wright State sank shots at a 55% pace and limited the Athletic Vikings to just 40%. That was game over with it adding up to four more makes from the field. Cole Darling tossed in a game high 21 points followed by a 17 point performance from Miles Dixon while AJ Pacher and Reggie Arceneaux combined for 20.
This really depends on which Milwaukee club shows up because they about as frustrating as anything when they lay an egg. They better show up here and be competitive at least...
