What to Know
The Northern Kentucky Norse will stay at home another game and welcome the Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panthers at 4 p.m. ET Jan. 28 at Truist Arena. The Norse will be strutting in after a victory while Wisconsin-Milwaukee will be stumbling in from a defeat.
NKU strolled past the Green Bay Phoenix with points to spare on Thursday, taking the contest 68-50.
Meanwhile, Wisconsin-Milwaukee came up short against the Wright State Raiders on Thursday, falling 93-86.
NKU is the favorite in this one, with an expected 6-point margin of victory. They hadn't treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 6-14), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread two games in a row.
NKU is now 14-8 while the Panthers sit at 14-7. Two stats to keep an eye on: The Norse enter the matchup with 16.9 takeaways on average, good for 17th best in college basketball. Less enviably, Wisconsin-Milwaukee is 13th worst in college basketball in turnovers per game, with 15.1 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
