IUPUI Jaguars at Wisconsin Milwaukee Panthers

Friday, January 3, 2020 at 8:00 PM (Uw-Milwaukee Panther Arena)

Milwaukee -9, O/U 145

The IUPUI Jaguars are traveling to UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to face off against the Milwaukee Panthers. The IUPUI Jaguars are coming off of a two point loss, dropping them to 4-11 on the year and 0-2 in conference play. The Milwaukee Panthers are 5-9 on the year and 0-2 in conference play, following a 12-point loss in their last game.

 

The IUPUI Jaguars are averaging 66.7 points per game and also allow 76.0 points per game. The Jaguars are led by junior guard, Marcus Burk. Burk is averaging 18.5 points per game and is also coming off of an impressive 19 point game in the Jaguars loss. If the Jaguars want a chance to stay close, they need Burk to step up big time.

 

The Milwaukee Panthers enter this matchup averaging 71.9 points per game and also allow 72.5 points a game. The Panthers are led by senior guard, Darius Roy. Roy has scored 25 points against Kansas and Wisconsin but averages only 15.7 points per game. Roy is able to score against good teams, making this a prime matchup for him. If Milwaukee wants to cover the spread, they will need Roy to score a lot of points for them.
