About Wright State: A win tonight would give Wright State its first-ever season sweep of both Green Bay and Milwaukee. The Raiders completed the sweep of Green Bay with a 70-68 double-overtime win Thursday, and they beat Milwaukee 53-51 on Jan. 5 at the Nutter Center. … The overtime game was Wright State’s first of the season. It won both overtime games it played last season, and its last overtime loss was Jan. 16, 2010, at Milwaukee (67-61). … With his 11-point performance Thursday, Jerran Young has scored in double digits eight times and three times in the last four games.

About Milwaukee: James Haarsma scored 26 points off the bench in Thursday’s 82-74 loss to Detroit. He moved past 1,000 points in his career. … Harris led the Panthers with 14 points in the first game against the Raiders. Gulley scored 13, and Aaron had 12 on 3-of-15 shooting. … The Panthers have lost six games in a row nine of their last 10. Their only win in that stretch was Jan. 17 against Cleveland State (69-57). … Milwaukee ranks second-to-last in the Horizon League in scoring (61.4) and last in defense (70.2).

Coach Billy Donlon on Milwaukee: “They have some great strengths. They played Detroit really well. I believe they just haven’t made as many winning plays. You go back to the game at our place. They could have easily won that game. The Detroit game, they were right there. Rob (Jeter) is a great coach. It’s just been one of those years.”
