I thought we played a sloppy game the first half but picked it up later in the second half. I also thought we took the other team lightly and it showed it’s ugly head.we are not in a position to take no one lightly we have to continue to learn our players strength and weaknesses and don’t over do things we took a lot of bad shots that must get corrected but I’m pleased with a WIN!!!!! I’m concerned about our bigs they have to make there presence felt but it’s only the first game but I see the future is bright for us we are changing to attitude with players that knows how to win and want to win just have to continue to get as a team. We are one of the best teams in Horizon if we play to our strengths will be a good season for us I’ll make my first game on Saturday can’t wait excited hope to see y’all there let’s go Panthers

Frustrating game to watch for many reasons including a terrible lineup inserted in first half that let opponent get back into game. Roy and Allen were missed because of their experience. A few of backdoor were result of freshman mistakes and overplaying on weak side. The Panthers were in control most of second half. The late run by Concordia impacted the final score but really caused little stress. There were some stupid shots in last five minutes and we couldn’t get to line when there was penetration. A three guard lineup should cause a lot of teams matchup problems. Lucas and Thomas hit the boards as well as some of the bigs. There are a lot of new players who should get better. Lucas is one of quickest players to ever put on the uniform for UWM. He is the real deal and can dominate the game. A couple of move he made both offensively and defensively were freakish. Hope Roy not playing is nothing serious. Coach needs him in the game. Seems there is always an example made early in the season. Same thing happened to Lucas at Illinois. Let’s no forget the program is not grooming NBA lottery picks. The program is educating and teaching leadership skills to talented young men.

As much as the team would have been better off with Darius, if for no reason other than to give Te'Jon and J.T. a timely break here and there, I think it missed Amir that much more. Although only facing a Division 3 team, C.J., Courtney, Shae and Harrison all appeared to struggle with the speed of the college game. In the case of C.J., Courtney and Shae, it's merely part of the learning process. As long as they're receiving good teaching, they'll get better.
Red Flag.................we beat a D3 school by only 10 points, at home. I hope this was just a sloppy start and not a sign of things to come.
Yes ... with the caviat that we MAY not have had some of our key pieces and that it was an early effort for several of our frontcourt players -- Brown, Henderson, Mitchell and Wilbourn among them. Was that who we'll be in a month? Two months? Three?
Ok maybe not all since you said it’s not possible.
Yes, hard to get into a multipurpose arena with the Milwaukee Admirals Hockey team for 40 plus dates and the Milwaukee Wave Indoor Soccer team with 12 plus dates and concerts. I just hope the Panthers can get in the arena more for shoot arounds.
