Men’s Basketball Hosts Valparaiso Saturday

The Panther men’s basketball team is back at home for the first time in 2013 when they host Valparaiso Saturday afternoon, Jan. 12.

The game tips off at 1 p.m. and is the Horizon League Game of the Week, meaning it will be televised live across the Midwest.

There are plenty of great deals available to attend the game and bring the family. Saturday is Youth Day, with activities for the children including make your own poster, Panther face tattoos and a coloring booth. Gameday tickets for youth 12 and under on those days are only $1! Plus, those 12 and under will receive a Milwaukee Basketball replica jersey.

Plus, the New Year’s Four-Pack is also available for Saturday’s game and all games in the month of January. The popular package includes four tickets, four hot dogs, four sodas and four Panther t-shirts for only $50!

Saturday’s game will provide a stiff test for the Panthers, as Valparaiso is the defending Horizon League champion and has been picked to win the league title again this season.

So far this year, UWM is being led by a pair of guards, as senior Paris Gulley and junior Jordan Aaron are both averaging over 15 points per game.
