The Green Bay Phoenix are on a 4 game winning streak and find themselves in a very favorable position tonight as they square off against a much inferior Milwaukee Panthers team which is just 1-7 on the road and has lost 6 consecutive games. 10 points doesn't appear to be a lot to lay in the case of the Phoenix in this lopsided matchup.

Milwaukee Panthers (4-11) vs Green Bay Phoenix (8-6) Options Are Limited

With no definitive go-to guy offensively and a lack of offensive firepower, the Panthers should have a great deal of trouble in this matchup. Milwaukee has eclipsed the 70 point mark just 2 times in their last 14 games. The offense will be an issue for the Panthers along with containing the momentum that Green Bay has coming into this game. For the season, the Panthers average 63 points and 31 rebounds per game. Simply stated, this is a very poor basketball squad and will be a betting underdog in almost all of their games this season.

From a Green Bay perspective, this also isn't a team with an 18 to 20 point per game scorer, but this is a deep team that can dominate the glass and has plenty of options to go to offensively as the Phoenix average a whopping 81 points per game. 

Charles Cooper

After missing a game against St. Mary's (MN) in which Green Bay didn't need him, Cooper has come out strong in his last two games as he's averaging 20.5 points, 9 rebounds, and 2 steals per game during this period of time. This is a burly 6 foot 4 player that will see a ton of opportunities at the free throw line as the opposition usually has trouble in dealing with Cooper's strength.

Along with 3-point specialist, freshman Trevor Anderson (11.6 points,41.4% 3-point range), this duo should have no trouble in dealing with the Milwaukee defense and expect big games from both players as Green Bay is a far superior basketball squad in comparison to a troubled Milwaukee Panthers squad. Green Bay will cover quite easily.
