Panthers would host first round at Klotsche Center

The Horizon League granted permission for the Milwaukee Panthers to play their first round home game at the Klotsche Center, should the Black and Gold host in the first round.

This is due to the well-publicized scheduling conflict with Disney on Ice, which needs the U.S. Cellular Arena on Tuesday to begin laying down the ice.

Milwaukee is currently the six seed, up one game in the standings over Wright State.  Three games are remaining on the schedule that will determine tiebreakers, so it’s not worth discussing those at this juncture.

It would be the first time Milwaukee has ever hosted a conference tournament game in the historic Klotsche Center.  Before Milwaukee played at the U.S. Cellular Arena, the conference tournament was hosted at a rotating conference venue each season.
