Milwaukee Panthers

The Panthers have been hovering around .500 for much of the season. After a 10-11 run through their first 21 games, Milwaukee has since gone 5-3. The wins in that time have come versus Fort Wayne, IUPUI, Cleveland State, Northern Kentucky and Fort Wayne again.

In the rematch with Fort Wayne on Sunday, the Panthers came out of the break with a 40-39 edge. Milwaukee was able to fend off the Mastodons on a 56-49 run the rest of the way for a 96-88 win. Leading team scorer BJ Freeman put up 38 points with four rebounds and four assists.

IUPUI Jaguars

Over on the Jaguars’ side, they were only able to win six of their first 20 outings this year. IUPUI has lost nine straight since then versus Robert Morris, Youngstown State, Wright State, Green Bay, Milwaukee, Fort Wayne, Detroit, Oakland and Northern Kentucky in succession.

Matched up against Northern Kentucky in their Sunday game, the Jaguars faced a 14-point deficit going into the second half. IUPUI didn’t get any closer on a 36-34 run from there and took the loss 80-64. Jlynn Counter was the top team scorer with 16 points, seven assists and four steals.


I’ll stick with Milwaukee. The Panthers played well overall against a pretty good Fort Wayne team in their last outing, posting 55.4 percent from the field, 50 percent (13-of-26) from 3-point range and 34 rebounds. (The 21-of-30 from the line wasn’t spectacular, though.) Milwaukee is scoring well these days with 71 or more points in four straight—a 3-1 run.

The last time these teams saw each other back on February 4, Milwaukee took an 87-67 home victory. The Panthers closed strong in that one and ended up shooting 49.3 percent from the field with a 43-35 rebounding edge and 14 points off 12 IUPUI turnovers. The Jaguars should play better in the home rematch, but I don’t quite think they’ll cover.
