A Jan. 2 showdown at Green Bay will be the first Horizon League contest for the men’s basketball team. The game will be carried on ESPN3 at 2 p.m.

 

The first home Horizon League contest will be against the Wright State Raiders 1 p.m. January 9. It is the first of three consecutive league home contests in January and a stretch of eight home games in 10 contests.
