With four regular season games remaining the Youngstown State men's basketball team is in the thick of the Horizon League regular season championship and No.1 seed in the post season tournament.

The Penguins (20-7 & 12-4) host Milwaukee (18-8 & 12-4) for first place and the inside track for the top seed.

"It's going to be a hostile environment Thursday night, " said Coach Jerrod Calhoun.

'I have a lot of respect for what Bart Lundy has done at Milwaukee & I think they're on of the most athletic, toughest teams in the league.  It's going to be a tough challenge and should be electric on Thursday."

Last month the Panthers beat YSU 88-75 in Milwaukee.

After Thursday's game the Penguins host Green Bay Saturday at 1:00 pm before closing out the regular season next week at Robert Morris & IUPUI.
