The Milwaukee Panthers will head on the road to take on the Illinois-Chicago Flames on Friday evening in a battle between two teams jockeying for position in the Horizon League standings.

The Panthers are fresh off of a heartbreaking 72-71 loss on the road against IUPUI on Wednesday night. Evan Hall made a putback as time expired to give IUPUI the one-point home win. Jeremiah Bell scored a team-high 21 points on the evening, while Brock Stull added 15 in  a losing effort for the Panthers.

Line: Illinois-Chicago -2

Panthers fall to 2-3 in Horizon League play

Pat Baldwin’s squad has last six of their last nine games. Milwaukee enters the weekend with a 9-9 overall record and a 2-3 mark in Horizon League play. The Panthers do a good job of defending teams inside the arc and limiting second-chance opportunities. Opposing teams own an offensive rebounding percentage of just 21.1 percent (3rd in the NCAA) and are shooting just 47.5 percent from inside the arc against the Panthers defense (96th in the NCAA) so far this year.

Stull leads the team in scoring for the season at 14.1 points per game, while Bell chips in 13.5 a night to help pace the Panthers on offense.

Milwaukee has gotten 52.3 percent of their total points from inside of the arc this season (95th in the NCAA). The Panthers are shooting 52.9 percent from the field on their two-point attempts, but just 33.9 percent from beyond the arc (216th in the NCAA).

Flames riding two-game win streak

Illinois-Chicago stumbled through the non-conference season, but the Flames managed to even up their conference record heading into the weekend. The Flames topped Green Bay at home on Wednesday night, defeating the Phoenix 84-73 for their second straight Horizon League win. Dikembe Dixon scored a team-high 23 points on 10-of-12 shooting from the field, while Marcus Ottey and Godwin Boahan finished with 16 points apiece to propel the Flames to victory.

Steve McClain’s squad has struggle on offense this season, scoring just 94.7 points per 100 possessions (315th in the NCAA) for the season. The Flames are turning the ball over on 23.7 percent of their offensive possessions (341st in the NCAA) this season and are shooting 28.7 percent from three-point range (346th in the NCAA).

Trends

Milwaukee

  • Panthers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games.
  • Panthers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

Illinois-Chicago

  • Flames are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games.
  • Flames are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

The Flames will face an uphill battle on Friday night, but they come in riding a two-game winning streak in conference play. UIC has struggled offensively, but they’ve been one of the most effective mid-major defenses in the country. The Flames have limited their opponents to 100.7 points per 100 possessions (107th in the NCAA) and an effective field goal percentage of 47.7 percent (61st in the NCAA). Take the Flames to cover the spread at home on Friday night.
