While not quite a landslide, the contest between Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Green Bay Phoenix on Wednesday was still a pretty decisive one as Wisconsin-Milwaukee wrapped it up with a 63-49 win on the road.
Meanwhile, Detroit had enough points to win and then some against the Central Michigan Chippewas two weeks ago, taking their game 89-75.
Wisconsin-Milwaukee is expected to lose this next one by 4.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
The wins brought Wisconsin-Milwaukee up to 5-9 and the Titans to 4-7. A couple defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Panthers have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 38.30%, which places them 22nd in college basketball.
