The Green Bay Phoenix and the Milwaukee Panthers meet in Horizon League college basketball action from the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena on Saturday night.
The Green Bay Phoenix will try to leapfrog into the top four of the Horizon League, sitting at 7-6 in conference play despite a 71-58 loss to UIC last time out. JayQuan McCloud leads the Phoenix with 16.1 points, 5 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game while Amari Davis is right behind in scoring with 15.8 points per game. Kameron Hankerson and PJ Pipes each have 10+ points per game to round out the group of double-digit scorers for Green Bay this season. As a team, Green Bay is averaging 81 points per game on 45.5% shooting from the field, 37% from behind the arc and 74.4% from the foul line while allowing opposing teams to rack up 80.5 points per game on 45% shooting from the field and 35.9% from 3-point range this season. Green Bay is 5-9 straight up and 9-5 against the spread on the road this season.
The Milwaukee Panthers will also try to crack the top four with a win after an 80-79 win over IUPUI last time out. Te’Jon Lucas leads Milwaukee in scoring and assists with 15.5 points and 4.7 assists per game while Darius Roy is 2nd in scoring with 14.7 points per game and Josh Thomas is 3rd with 10 points per game this season. DeAndre Abram is also contributing 9.5 points and a team-high 5.9 rebounds per game on the year. As a team, Milwaukee is averaging 71.6 points on 40.9% shooting from the field, 31.6% from behind the arc and 70.3% from the foul line while allowing opposing teams to average 71.9 points on 42.7% shooting from the field, 34.9% from behind the arc and 71.5% from the foul line this season. Milwaukee is 7-5 straight up and 4-6 against the spread at home this season.
Head-to-head, the road team is 10-4-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings between these two teams. I’ve gone back and forth on this game, and the points with Green Bay are tempting given how much success the road team’s had in this matchup. However, Milwaukee plays their best at home, logging 75.8 points per game and outscoring teams by 4.8 points per game while Green Bay’s defense hasn’t been very good, allowing 80.5 points per game on the year and 82.8 points per game in their last 5. Give me the Panthers and lay the bucket here.
