Milwaukee adds Themus Fulks, '24-'25 roster now set

Longtime Milwaukee recruiting target Themus Fulks has decided to transfer from Louisiana to the (best) city by the Lake.

The Panthers needed just one final 🧩 piece to complete the '23-'24 roster: a veteran point guard.

Fulks fits that bill in spades.

Last season he averaged 10.6 points, 4.4 assists, and 2.8 rebounds for a Rajin' Cajuns team that reached the Sun Belt championship, narrowly missing the Big Dance (much like Milwaukee).

 We haven't had a veteran, pure point guard since... '19-'20 (Darius Roy)? This is a huge boost.

A native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Fulks played for Milwaukee assistant coach Jake Williams at Dodge City Community College with BJ Freeman in '21-'22 where they reached the NJCAA Elite Eight. He followed that with two exceptional seasons at Louisiana that saw him average 6 👀 assists and then more recently the ~11/4/~3 he posted last season.

Milwaukee has been all kinds of inconsistent when it comes to effectively running offensive sets. A lot of this has to do with the up-tempo pace that Lundy has instituted but a lot more of it has to do with the fact that we've not had a point guard that is an experienced offensive orchestrator. The dividends of having Fulks at the point will be big. 

Fulks figures to run the show at the point and will be a great mentor for TJ Robinson

Panther fans extend a warm welcome to Fulks, and the entire cohort of incoming players. We have an embarrassment of riches in the talent department. The key will be getting this roster to mesh into an unselfish, confident, championship-caliber team. The 2024-2025 Milwaukee Panther Basketball season is shaping up to be a great one; the one that takes us back to the Big Dance? The chances are high.

go panthers.
