How To Watch

What to Know

We've got another exciting Horizon League matchup on schedule as the Milwaukee Panthers and the PFW Mastodons are set to tip at 3:00 p.m. ET on February 25th at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena. Milwaukee has been getting the ball to fall more lately as they've increased their point totals each of their last three games.

Milwaukee fought the good fight in their overtime match against the Penguins on Friday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result. They fell to the Penguins 84-80. The oddsmakers set the bar high with a 162.5-point over/under, but they still managed to beat it.

Green Bay typically has all the answers at home, but on Friday PFW proved too difficult a challenge. They took their game on the road with ease, bagging a 85-59 win over the Phoenix. With PFW ahead 47-23 at the half, the contest was all but over already.

The Panthers' defeat dropped their record down to 14-14. As for the Mastodons, their victory was their fourth straight on the road, which pushed their record up to 18-10.

Fans should be in for an exciting game on Sunday as the pair are among the highest scoring teams in the league right now. Milwaukee hasn't had any problem running up the score this season, having averaged 78 points per game. However, it's not like PFW struggles in that department as they've been averaging 79.5 points per game.

Looking forward, Milwaukee is expected to win a tight contest, barring any buzzer beaters. For those looking to play the spread, watch out: Milwaukee is expected to win, but their 4-7 record against the spread as such isn't exactly encouraging.
