UWGB update: This is the start of a season-long, four-game Horizon League homestand. It includes games Saturday against UIC (which has been moved to a 3 p.m. start to avoid conflicting with the Packers playoff game at San Francisco) followed by games against Youngstown State (Jan. 17) and Cleveland State (Jan. 19). UWGB is 5-1 at home this season and 27-17 under Wardle at home, including 17-3 since the start of the 2011-12 season. ... Since moving into the starting lineup six games ago, sophomore forward Greg Mays has averaged 10.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.8 blocked shots per game while shooting 66.7 percent. Eleven of his 26 baskets in that stretch were dunks. ...With two free throws at Detroit on Saturday, junior guard Kam Cerroni broke the school record for consecutive free throws made with 40, surpassing the old mark of 38 held by Matt Rohde (2002-03). Cerroni has made all 25 free throws this season and his last miss came on Feb. 4, 2012.

Loyola update: The Ramblers, who were picked seventh in the Horizon League preseason poll, have surpassed their win total from all of last season, when they went 7-23 in Moser's first year as coach. ... Moser, who interviewed for the UWGB job and then pulled out before Wardle was hired, previously was an assistant coach at Saint Louis under the late Rick Majerus. Moser also had head-coaching stints at Arkansas-Little Rock and Illinois State. ... Junior guard Cully Payne, who sat out last season after transferring from Iowa, has averaged 11.6 points, 2.0 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.3 steals per game and has shot 40 percent from 3-point range over his last nine games, which includes wins over DePaul and Mississippi State. ... Loyola ranks third in the Horizon League and 34th in the nation in scoring defense, allowing just 58.3 points per game.
