Milwaukee won 20 games last year and was 145th in RPI. Winning this game would show that the Coogs are improved this year.
The New Orleans regional will be played at Lakefront Arena, and will also consist of the host school University of New Orleans as well as CSU-Northridge, who will meet following the Houston/Milwaukee game on Friday.
