A Sports Point-Counterpoint

Topic One: First Impressions for UWM Men’s Basketball

Nate Smidt: Personally, I think the player with the most talent and most upside will be riding the bench, as Torre Johnson is ineligible for the season due to transfer issues.  Sam Mauldin looked as solid as he possibly could with a knee injury which we're all praying and hoping heals quickly as he is the only player listed over 6'7".  Although some what streaky at time, Ricky Franklin has a lot of buzz going on around him.  There is a lot of young talent and unknown transfers, and I think Panther basketball will surprise the Horizon League and pull out a much better finish than seventh as the pre-season coach’s poll predicted.
