The Bart Lundy era at UW-Milwaukee is underway with a bang, as the Milwaukee Panthers (1-0) dominated the Division 3 Milwaukee School of Engineering Raiders, 102-46, from the Klotsche Center.
The Panthers used an 18-2 run in the first half to blow the game open and they never looked back. The Panthers also finished the game on a 27-4 run over the final 9:24.
This UW-Milwaukee team has 13 new players that weren’t on the team a season ago! This was a great game to get some chemistry going and some of the bench players some run.
UWM was led by Angelo Stuart’s 24 points on 8-of-11 from the field, including 5-for-8 from 3-point range and a perfect 3-for-3 at the free throw line. Stuart also had five assists.
The Panthers as a team shot 38-of-62 (61.3%) from the field, 8-of-17 (47.1%) from 3-point range and 18-of-22 (81.8%) at the free throw line. UWM did have nine turnovers, which isn’t horrible, but I would like to see that number down to 5-6 against a team like MSOE.
The Panthers will travel to West Lafayette, Indiana to play the Purdue Boilermakers tomorrow (Tuesday), November 8th. Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. (Central Time) and will be televised on the Big Ten Network (BTN).
