UW-Milwaukee Panthers @ DePaul Blue Demons


Horizon League VS. Big East? Well why not. I think this will be an exciting game to watch as Rob Jeter has his Panthers sitting at 7-1 with their only loss coming @ Michigan State.  DePaul has a 4-2 record with losses against Minnesota and Mississippi. The only category that Milwaukee outranks DePaul in is average rebounds per game. The Panthers Kaylon Williams will be the key to a win, along with James Haarsma. If they can outassist, and outrebound a physical DePaul team, they should find themselves a slim margin of victory.  DePaul on the other hand are led by Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young who are both sophomores. Young talent is always exciting to watch, as they both can put up big scoring numbers. The books favor DePaul by 3 points tonight and I think that is an accurate projection. Milwaukee will chuck the rock from 3 point land like usual, and if they fall, they will win this game. DePaul cannot afford to be outrebounded tonight and give up 2nd chance points in the paint. I am going to go out on a limb and say Milwaukee by 4 points tonight.
