Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers (15-15 SU, 13-15 ATS, 11-17 O/U) vs. Oakland Golden Grizzlies (17-13 SU, 8-19 ATS, 12-15 O/U)

NCAAB: Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. EST

The Oakland Golden Grizzlies will be hoping to halt a two-game losing streak when they entertain the Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers at Athletics Center O’rena on Saturday afternoon. Oakland is coming off consecutive setbacks against IUPUI and Wisconsin-Green Bay. The Panthers have alternated wins and losses dating back to Jan. 27 and they most recently defeated Detroit on Thursday.

Bryce is nice

After three consecutive games in which he was limited to single-digits in the scoring department, Bryce Nze poured in 23 points to go along with 15 rebounds while leading Wisconsin-Milwaukee to a 72-49 road rout of Detroit on Thursday. The Panthers led from wire to wire, in part because Nze had 13 points and 11 points by halftime. He finished 10-for-17 from the floor while also contributing four assists and three blocked shots.

“I was pleased with our guys and their effort,” head coach Pat Baldwin said. “We always say defense has to travel with us. Even when we have offensive lulls and aren’t getting the possessions we want on the offensive end, our defense has been really strong. We have to continue that effort into our game against Oakland on Saturday.”

“We got a great contribution from Bryce Nze–his second straight game of 15 or more rebounds, which is unbelievable. But defensively we were stout. We did a great job, especially in the second half. This was a good team win and we are looking forward to the next challenge.”

Second to Nunn

Oakland fell at home 96-90 to Wisconsin-Green Bay on Thursday, but it was no fault of Kendrick Nunn. The senior guard poured in a career-high 39 points on 12-of-24 shooting from the floor, including six three-pointers. That marked Nunn’s 10th 30-point game of the season, which leads the entire NCAA. The Chicago, Ill. native also moved into seventh all-time in program history for points scored in a single season (703). Jalen Hayes added 22 points nine rebounds, and three assists for the Golden Grizzlies, while Isaiah Brock led the team with 10 rebounds–his 11th double-figure rebounding performance of the 2017-18 campaign.

Nunn is averaging 26.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game this season. He has reached double-digits on every single occasion. Nunn preceded his 39-point outburst against the Phoenix with 29 points in a 74-69 loss at IUPUI on Monday. He also recorded six rebounds in each of those two outings and has pulled down at least six boards in four of the last five games.

NCAAB Trends:

The Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers are:

  • 4-1 ATS in their last five overall
  • 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the Horizon League
  • 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a win by more than 20 points

The Oakland Golden Grizzlies are:

  • 7-19 ATS in their last 26 overall
  • 0-9 ATS in their last nine home games
  • 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games against the Horizon League

Nze was plagued by foul trouble in the previous meeting between these two teams, but he is in fine form right now and has averaged 16 rebounds and 3.5 blocks over the past two outings. Needless to say, he is a beast to deal with down low. Nunn, meanwhile, could hardly have been any better over the last two contests and the Golden Grizzlies still lost on both occasions. They have lost three of their last four overall. Wisconsin-Milwaukee is 4-1 ATS in its last five overall, 4-1 ATS in its last five against the Horizon League, 4-1 ATS in its last five following a win by more than 20 points, and 4-0 ATS in its last four on Saturdays. The Golden Grizzlies are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 overall, 3-13 ATS in their last 16 against the Horizon League, 0-9 ATS in their last nine at home, 18-41-2 ATS in their last 61 at home against opponents with losing road records, and 1-6 ATS in their last seven following a loss. Look for those trends to continue.
