Live Blog: Men at Youngstown State

A string of three-straight games on the road comes to an end tonight as the Panthers take the court at the Beeghly Center for a matchup with Youngstown State.

You can follow the live blog here.

UWM is looking to snap a two-game slide and remain in third place in the league standings. Wright State and Cleveland State are tied with UWM for that spot - WSU hosts Detroit tonight while CSU hosts Green Bay.

Also on the Panthers' side, we'll be watching closely to see if leading scorer Tone Boyle is ready to go tonight. He has been moving better the last day or so and I think will give it a shot during warmups.

On the YSU side, the Penguins have won three-straight games and beat Green Bay Thursday night. YSU shot it well early and then hung on. The Penguins also forced the Phoenix into turnovers and mistakes early in building a 22-point lead.
