Athlon Picks Panthers As Favorite In Horizon League
Sept. 14, 2004
MILWAUKEE - The first college basketball magazine of the year to hit newsstands likes the Panthers.
Athlon Sports has picked the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to repeat as Horizon League champions, while the magazine has also selected senior Ed McCants as its league player of the year.
The magazine also included junior Joah Tucker on its five-person all-league team.
UWM returns four of five starters from last year's team that won the Horizon League regular season championship and earned the school's first NIT bid last season. The Panthers, after making the NCAA Tournament in 2003, have recorded back-to-back 20-win season for the first time since the early 1990s.
