The Morning Dish – Sunday, March 6, 2016--Hoopville
Conference Tournament Round-up
In the Horizon League Tournament, all four games were decided by double digits as Green Bay beat Cleveland State, Milwaukee knocked off Northern Kentucky, Wright State blew out UIC and Detroit beat Youngstown State.
Side Dishes

Some sad news came out late and in the midst of all the fun: Oakland guard Max Hooper lost his father, Chip, who had bravely battled cancer. Chip Hooper was able to see Max play on Senior Night in a well-chronicled story that provided a heart-warming moment. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Chip Hooper at this time.

Horizon League Quarterfinals

Both games will stream on ESPN3.

Game 5: No. 5 Milwaukee Panthers (20-12, 10-8) vs. No. 4 Green Bay Phoenix (20-12, 11-7), 1 p.m.
The pair split the season series with each winning at home.
Game 6: No. 6 Detroit-Mercy Titans (16-14, 9-9) vs. No. 3 Wright State Raiders (20-12, 13-5), approx. 3:30 p.m.
The pair split the season series with each winning at home.

Saturday's game were all chalk—and not particularly close—and today the three seed joins the fun. Game one is an underrated in-state rivalry, while game two features the team that has the best shot at knocking off top seed Valparaiso. Of course, that Raider team lost by seven to the Titans at Calihan Hall on January 31st, and UDM isn't playing that far from home.
