Live Blog: Horizon League Tournament Second Round - UWM vs. Wright State

We are in Indianapolis as the Speedway Horizon League Men's Basketball Championship continues with second round action tonight. The Panthers will face Wright State at 6 p.m. EST/5 p.m. CST, with the winner advancing to a Saturday contest with Butler.

You can follow the live blog here.

The Panthers and Raiders split their two regular season meetings, with each team winning on its homecourt. Tuesday night in the first round, UWM handled Loyola while Wright State put together a late surge to advance past Valparaiso.

On the UWM front, there is not a ton of new news to report. The Panthers did go through a two-hour practice at Hinkle yesterday but then passed on the very early shootaround time today. So, it's been some film work, a scouting report and relaxation as UWM tries to advance to the semifinals.

The blog remains free of charge ... in fact we have considered paying people who actually follow along for an entire game.

Alright, I'll plan to have a little more when we get to Hinkle.
