Panthers release 2015-16 schedule

After many months of putting together their non-conference schedule, the Milwaukee Panthers finally put out their full schedule (conference games have been out for weeks). Highlighting the docket are three high-major road games as well as two in-season tournaments.

Rob Jeter’s eleventh season at the helm kicks off at the Klotsche Center in an exhibition match-up with Parkside. The Panthers hit the road a week later, taking on Denver, Lipscomb and host Santa Clara in the Cable Car Classic in northern California to open the season. Milwaukee’s first of three non-conference road games take the Panthers to Notre Dame.

After opening the Panther Arena slate against NAIA member Trinity International, the Panthers will spend Thanksgiving week in Fort Myers, Florida in the Gulf Coast Showcase. Neutral site games with Murray State and either Duquesne or Pepperdine will give Milwaukee a great opportunity to bolster their at-large profile. Should the Panthers win both, they will play in the tournament’s title game against either Weber State, Drake, Central Michigan or Western Kentucky.

Milwaukee hosts SIU Edwardsville, Judson and South Dakota in December sandwiched around a road game with Wisconsin on December 9th. The Panthers close out the non-conference schedule on the road at Minnesota, then opening the Horizon League schedule on January 2nd against Wright State.
