HLT Final Four Semis, Championship Predictions..

It'd be nice to get back to the Big Dance again... would be followed by a recruiting boom for certain.

After escaping the trap game against Detroit (we were losing for much of the game!), Milwaukee went up to Green Bay and handled business. The Panthers exploded in the second half, buried GB, and now see themselves prepping for the Horizon League Tournament Semifinal Monday night at 6:30pm in a contest against Northern Kentucky.

Can Milwaukee beat Northern Kentucky in the HLT Semifinal? Not easily, but yes. We beat them on an Angelo Stuart buzzer beater not long ago at Panther Area. But this will be a tough game and a real showdown between two relatively well-matched teams. Here's to hoping we come out like we did against Valpo in 2011 and  win in a convincing and motivating fashion.

Tune in this Monday at 6:30pm on ESPN+ or via radio on 101.7 The Truth FM.

This one is for half of the marbles; I like our chances.

go panthers.
