Showdown at the Arc

NOTE: Sorry for not putting this up last night – while I was writing it, the Official Girlfriend of PantherU™ had some complications and we spent several hours in the hospital. No worries, however, everything is OK! On to the article.


No, not that ARC. Valparaiso is on the road – the three-point line, sillies!

This is the breakdown.  Milwaukee – the Black and Gold owners of the #1 three-point defense in the nation, face off tonight against Youngstown State, the conference leader in three-pointers made and percentage.

The buzz phrase creeping up around this match-up, tonight at 6 p.m. on ESPN3, is obvious.

Something’s gotta give.

Youngstown State’s offense trots out four double-figure scorers and a fifth, wing forward Dushawn Brooks, is just .22 points per game from joining the club.

The Penguins lead the Horizon League in three pointers made and three-point percentage.  They are second to Milwaukee in attempts, but they absolutely are the most dangerous team from three-point range and will kill Milwaukee if the Panthers don’t defend the arc as well as they have all season.

That’s where the match-up is, and we’ll be following it all night.

Because I’ve been unable to sit down and write out the article as long as I’d like, I took about ten minutes to discuss the game tonight.  Please be a little patient, I’m under the weather and cough a few times during the video.
