Live Blog: MBB at Wright State

The Panthers are into the final week of the regular season and it begins tonight at the Nutter Center. We'll be courtside for the action.

You can follow the live blog here.

UWM enters play tonight tied with Wright State for fourth place in the league standings, with each team a game back of Cleveland State for third place. While there are a few wildcards in the mix, the Panthers will likely finish with the third seed if they win both games this weekend.

Wright State has recovered nicely from an 0-6 start to the year. Vaughn Duggins has never returned from injury while John David Gardner has been out of late, as well. So, it has been a shorthaded Raiders team.

On the UWM side, the focus is really on getting a road win, something that hasn't happened since Jan. 3 at Loyola. The Panthers have actually played reasonably well in their last three road outings, but came back with nothing to show for it.
