Yoho is shooting 48 percent from 3-point range in the last six games (10-of-21).

They haven’t won two games in a row this season. Their other wins are against D-II University of Mary, Davidson and Northern Illinois.

Coach Billy Donlon on Milwaukee: “Rob Jeter does not get enough credit for what he does in this league. Two years ago, they went 9-0 the second way through the league, and that’s really hard to do in this league at any time. Those guys will get it going. They have five seniors, and you always play with more urgency when you’re a senior than you did at an any other point in your career. Their guys will come in here with a great amount of urgency.”
