Live Blog: MBB vs. Youngstown State

It may be bitterly cold outside but we'll have basketball inside the U.S. Cellular Arena tonight as the Panthers take on Youngstown State.

Tipoff will come sometime after the completion of the women's game between UWM and Wright State, which has just gotten underway.

You can follow the live blog here.

This game shapes up as though it could be a shootout, as these two squads lead the league in scoring. YSU also allows opponent to shoot better than 46 percent from the field, while Loyola made 10-of-15 from three-point range Saturday. The Penguins can also score themselves, as newcomer Kelvin Bright earned league POTW honors on Monday.
