The Patrick Baldwin Jr. era in Milwaukee has gotten off to a rocky start, but after missing three games, the projected NBA first round talent is back as the team faces off with Colorado on Friday.

Milwaukee Panthers at Colorado Buffaloes (-13.5, 134)

UW-Milwaukee won Baldwin’s first game back, with Baldwin shooting 6-of-6 from 3-point range in the team’s second win of the season against Robert Morris 77-69 His presence was sorely needed, as the team scored 68 points or fewer in three straight losses without him.

Colorado enters having scored 63 points or fewer in five of their last six games that have not gone to overtime and shooting 25.3 percent from 3-point range the past seven games.

The Buffaloes also figure to have a tough time inside with UW-Milwaukee allowing opponents to shoot 42.1 percent on 2-point shots, which ranks 17th in the country.

With 70.6 percent of Colorado’s field goal attempts coming from within the 3-point arc, which is 33rd out of 358 Division I teams, Colorado will have a tough time with a UW-Milwaukee team that is back at full force.

Pick: Milwaukee + 13.5
