UW-Milwaukee Panthers Take Down IUPUI Jaguars

The UW-Milwaukee Panthers (10-20, 8-13 Horizon) defeat the IUPUI Jaguars (3-24, 1-15 Horizon), 66-54, inside the Indiana Farmers Coliseum tonight.

Milwaukee took a 28-25 lead into intermission, but didn’t look good. The Panthers played much better in the final 20 minutes to get some separation and ultimately win by 12.

DeAndre Gholston scored a game-high 20 points on 8-of-14 from the field, had eight rebounds and two assists, but did have four turnovers.

Jasin Sinani was the other Panther in double-figures, as he finished with 10 points on a perfect 4-for-4 from the field, with a rebound and an assist.

UWM made 26-of-46 (56.5%) from the field, 7-for-15 (46.7%) from 3-point range and 7-of-8 (87.5%) at the free throw line. The Panthers had 15 assists, but were terrible taking control of the ball and finished with 17 turnovers.

UWM needed this win to have a chance to have a home game in the first round of the Horizon League Tournament next week. And they need to win Saturday as well.

Up Next:

The Panthers will remain on the road and play the Illinois-Chicago Flames (11-15, 7-10 Horizon) inside the Credit Union 1 Arena in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday, February 26th in the regular season finale for both teams. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00 PM (Central Time) and will be televised on ESPN+.
