The East Tennessee State Buccaneers and the Milwaukee Panthers collide in Saturday college basketball action.
The East Tennessee State Buccaneers won back to back games to kick off the season before falling to CAA power UNC Wilmington on Sunday. The Buccaneers trailed by 12 after 20 minutes and never got going with the Seahawks holding a 48%-44.6% shooting edge which equaled a few more baskets and five more makes at the charity stripe. TJ Cromer was the Buccaneers best offensive option with a game high 22 points on 8-14 followed by a ten point, nine rebound from Hanner Mosquera-Perea while Isaac Banks chipped in with eight but East Tennessee State needed a few more scoring options and balance.

The Milwaukee Panthers are not the same team that won 20 games a season ago and I would sat rebuilding best describes them right now. The Panthers are looking to get back in the win column after dropping consecutive contests following a 77-59 defeat at DePaul as a nine point underdog. A 47-32 second half run stopped Milwaukee and their upset bid as the Blue Demons 53%-41.8% shooting advantage and 11-22 accuracy from long range was too much to compete with especially when your own perimeter game is just 3-19. The Panthers only had two double digit scorers led by Bryce Barnes with 14 points on 5-8 shooting with Bryce Nze adding 13 points and five yanks on 5-6 while Brock Stull chipped in with nine points.
East Tennessee State are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall and the over is 18-7-2 in East Tennessee State last 27 overall.
The Buccaneers seem to have the edge on paper and I hope that proves true on the hardwood…
