I know that many had billed Wright State as a team to keep an eye on in the Horizon but I'm not sure what to expect from this team on game day. The Raiders fell behind by double figures and made a dramatic comeback only to fall to Milwaukee 68-64 as time eventually ran out. The defense first approach allowed the Panthers to sink shots at 49% which was a winning number with their own offense hitting at 41%. JT Yoho was the top option offensively with 20 points and six yanks with Tavares Sledge and Jerran Young netting 12 and ten points.

From watching Green Bay I can see a team that has been winning but haven't necessarily looked good in the process. The Phoenix have played from behind several times in the the past few weeks but have managed to still win. GB fell behind Valparaiso by 13 heading to the locker room and didn't come bsck in 75-60 loss. The Crusaders burned the nets at nearly 59% to easily outdistance the Raiders 38% accuracy which led to the visitors first conference loss. Keifer Sykes paced the attack with 19 points and six assists but he did turn the ball over five times. Greg Mays was next in line with eight points and seven boards while five others added between 5-6 points.
I am going to back the points here because Green Bay hasn't been running up the score on opponents. I'm not all that thrilled with Wright State either but...
