They haven’t had a better start than this since 1989-90 when they were 11-3. … Wright State has split the season series with Milwaukee the last seven seasons, and the home team has won every game. Milwaukee’s last win at the Nutter Center was in 2005. … In all 10 of their wins, the Raiders have had the lead with 10 minutes left and with five minutes left. … J.T. Yoho is shooting 48 percent from 3-point range in the last six games (10-of-21).

About Milwaukee: The Panthers have lost five of their last six games, and their only win in that stretch was against a Division II team, Ohio Dominican. 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. They lost 74-59 at Detroit on Thursday in their Horizon League opener. … The Panthers rank second-to-last in the league in scoring (63.1 points per game). They’re one point better than the Raiders. The Panthers rank last in scoring defense (70.7), and the Raiders are first (56.0).

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.”
