    Box Score

    Milwaukee, Wis. - UW-Milwaukee erased an eight-point UIC lead with eight minutes left in the game on Thursday night to edge the Flames 81-78 in front of 5,738 at the Klotsche Center.

    UIC (15-7, 9-4) took a 67-59 advantage on a pair of Cedrick Banks free throws with 7:56 left. The Panthers (20-5, 11-2) clawed back, though, and eventually took the lead, 79-78, on a three-pointer by Clay Tucker with 24 seconds remaining.

    Senior Jonathan Schneiderman's three-point attempt on the next trip was just long and Dylan Page, who was fouled on the rebound, proceeded to convert two free throws to put UWM up, 81-78, with three seconds left. UIC would not get a shot off in the waning moments.

    Banks led UIC with 28 points while junior Armond Williams collected his team-best eighth double-double of the year with 24 points and 13 rebounds. Senior Kyle Kickert chipped in with nine points and nine rebounds.

    Tucker paced UWM, which shot 62% from the field in the second half, with 28 points while Ronnie Jones added 21. Dylan Page was also in double figures with 15.

    UIC took a 40-37 lead into intermission after shooting 50% in the opening stanza.

    The Flames will look to snap their two-game losing streak on Saturday as they host IPFW at the UIC Pavilion at 3:00 p.m.
