Live Blog: MBB vs. UIC

One more game for the month of January, and we'll be live courtside at the U.S. Cellular Arena. Tonight, the Panthers host UIC.

You can follow the live blog here.

Plenty going on today/tonight. We have the Alumni Game, which is actually about to start as I post this introduction. I will be sure to provide a complete report a bit later on -- I think we have 20 players for the game.

Also tonight, we'll be honoring the league champion women's soccer and women's volleyball teams. It is always nice for them to get recognition in front of the crowd at a basketball game.

Finally, Verizon Wireless is giving away cinch-sacks to everyone who comes through the doors.

On to the game itself ... UWM is looking to go to 9-3 in league play. Remember, the Panthers have just one league home game remaining so this is definitely a big one. Meanwhile, UIC has fallen to 3-7 in league play but remains extremely dangerous behind seniors Josh Mayo and Scott VanderMeer.

Without further pause, some links for your enhanced enjoyment of tonight's Horizon League men's basketball show ...
