Live Blog: MBB vs. Green Bay

Friday has arrived and we'll be courtside at the U.S. Cellular Arena for an in-state showdown between UWM and Green Bay.

You can follow the live blog here.

The Panthers are 5-0 in the league while the Phoenix is 3-1. Butler in sandwiched in between the two teams at 4-0.

Tonight's game is televised nationally on ESPNU, part of the new Horizon League Game of the Week package. Dave Kaplan and Jim Chones have the call.

There should be a good crowd on hand tonight, but the continued snow certainly isn't helping drive traffic. We'll see what the weather does the rest of the day. And hey, it's an 8 pm start, so there is extra time for everyone to make it downtown.

As always, some links for your entertainment and enjoyment.

There is no internet video since the game is on ESPNU.

Check back before tipoff for the lineups and some pregame thoughts, and then we'll be underway with an official tip-time of 8:05 pm.
