    MILWAUKEE - The UIC men's basketball team wrapped up its four-game road trip with a 64-53 loss against Milwaukee Wednesday night at the Klotsche Center. The Panthers' Paris Gulley poured in a game-high 17 points on five three-pointers on Senior Night.

    With the loss, the Flames dropped to 15-12 on the season, with a 6-8 Horizon League record. Milwaukee improved to 7-22 and 3-12. UIC will play its final three regular season games at the Pavilion, including Horizon League contests against Wright State (2/26/13) and Detroit (3/2/13).

    Senior point guard Gary Talton was the lone Flame in double figures, scoring 13 points to go along with eight rebounds and six assists. Gulley's 17 points led all scorers - he was 5-of-8 from three-point range.

    Milwaukee led 27-22 at halftime, with Gulley providing nine points on three triples. The Panthers shot 45.5 percent from the floor, but UIC stayed within striking distance by forcing 11 first-half turnovers. Talton and senior guard Daniel Barnes each scored five points in the opening stanza, and sophomore center Will Simonton came off the bench to contribute four points on a pair of field goals.

    UIC opened the second half on a 6-2 spurt, pulling within 29-28 with 16:16 remaining. But Milwaukee answered with a commanding 15-6 run, extending its lead to double-digits (45-34) at the 9:46 mark. Sophomore wing Marc Brown drilled a three-pointer out of a timeout with 3:22 left, pulling UIC within just five, 51-46 (3:22). But the Panthers did not allow UIC to convert another field goal until the final minute (:36), when another three by Brown sliced a 12-point deficit to nine, 60-51. The Flames could draw no closer down the stretch.

    UIC will take a break from Horizon League play Saturday (Feb. 23), when the Flames host in-state rival Bradley in a Ramada Worldwide BracketBusters game beginning at 3:00 p.m. The game will be televised on Comcast SportsNet Chicago.
