FIU Golden Panthers (1-1 SU) at Milwaukee Panthers (2-0 SU, 1-0 ATS, 0-1 O/U)

Line:  Wisconsin-Milwaukee -2.5

A meeting of Panthers takes place on Saturday night in UW -Milwaukee Panther Arena. FIU is coming off a tough 70-64 overtime loss to Stetson at home last Saturday. Milwaukee is 2-0 with wins over La Crosse (83-73) and Iowa State (74-56) on the road.

FIU can’t shoot against Stetson

The Golden Panthers shot 4-of-20 from beyond the arc, turned the ball over 15 times and shot just 36.8 percent from the field in their home loss to Stetson in overtime. FIU needed a 3-pointer from Brian Beard Jr. with 2.7 seconds left in the game to tie it at 56-56. Amazingly, that was Beard’s first three-pointer of the game after he missed his first seven shots from beyond the arc. Junior Eric Lockett led the way with 19 points and eight rebounds. Sophomore Trejon Jacob added 15 points and nine rebounds.

FIU returns no starters from a 7-24 team. this is a key season for Anthony Evans, who is 51-76 at the school. Beard Jr. is a junior college transfer that can play the point at 5-10. Lockett is one of the few returning players with experienced at the school. He averaged 5.1 points last season at FIU and began his career at George Mason, before going the junior college route.

Panthers dominate Cyclones on the road

Wisconsin-Milwaukee shocked Iowa State on the road by 18 after beating Division III La Crosse at home by just 10. This was a squad that went 11-24 last season and 4-14 in the Horizon, so this came out of left field. Maybe it’s new coach Pat Baldwin, who played for Northwestern in the early nineties. The Panthers shot 48 percent from the floor and held the Cyclones to 38.1 percent (3-15 3pt). Milwaukee also forced 18 turnovers while turning it over 10 times.

Brock Stull led the Panthers with 17 points on 5-of-12 from beyond the arc. he averaged 13.5 points and 6.6 rebounds last season. Brett Prahl (6-9), who averaged 7.2 points per game last season, had 14 points and five boards on 5-of-6 shooting. Sophomore forward Bryan Nze (6-7, 230) contributed 13 points and four boards.

NCAAB Trends:

FIU is:

n/a

Milwaukee is:

  • 5-2 ATS last 7 non-conference games.

Could there be a letdown? Of course. Beating Iowa State could also be a program-defining win for Milwaukee. FIU is still searching for an indentiy.
