The Alabama State Hornets take the floor with the Milwaukee Panthers in the Tulane Classic.
Alabama State doesn't get a lot of press because they are out of the SWAC and therefore not much is known about what this team has going for them. In a nutshell the Hornets score the basketball and opponents have as well. Tulane did most of the scoring in an 84-66 decision where the Green Wave connected at almost 55% from the floor with the Hornnets hitting at 41.5% which added up to seven more baskets for Tulane and decided this one. Jamel Waters paced the Alabama State attack with 17 points and eight helpers with Demarcus Robinson adding 14 while Bobby Brown and Brandon Graham tossed in 12 and eight points.

In my view Milwaukee appeared to be one of the most improved teams in the Horizon but I might have to rethink this wwhen the Panthers squandered a 19 point first half lead on the way to 62-49 loss to Northeastern. Both teams connected at around 44% with very little seperating these teams in the boxscore with the lone difference being a 9-4 advantage at the charity stripe which turned out to be decisive. Jordan Aaron led the Milwaukee offense with 14 points and eight rebounds followed by Kyle Helms and Matt Tiby with eleven points apiece and a combined nine boards followed Austin Arians who chipped in with ten points. The problem was the Panthers received only six points from their bench.
I don't know where the line will be for this one but I would say anything less then double figures and I would lean to Milwaukee...
