    Box Score

    Milwaukee, Wis. - The was no Holiday cheer at U.S. Cellular Arena for the UIC men's basketball team on Tuesday night, as host UW-Milwaukee used a 20-2 second-half run to earn a 78-62 victory in the Horizon League opener for both schools.

    The Flames (9-3, 0-1) trailed by just one, 51-50, with 14:21 left in the game, but the Panthes (5-3, 1-0) up the pressure, forcing UIC into eight turnovers in the next six-plus minutes to pace their surge, which left them with a 71-52 lead they would never relinquish. The Flames would finish the game with 21 total turnovers.

    Senor Dylan Page (25 points) and junior Ed McCants (21 points) paced UW-Milwaukee's offensive attack.

    UIC was led by Cedrick Banks' 19 points. Banks, who was 8-for-11 from the field, scored 16 of his points in the first half and was able to get just a single shot in the second stanza. Senior Martell Bailey finished with nine assists while sophomore Justin Bowen recorded a season-best nine points.

    The loss snaps the Flames' three-game winning streak and marks their first road loss of the season. UIC is also now 0-3 this season when scoring less than 70 points.

    The Flames will be back in action on Tuesday Dec. 30th as they battle Illinois at the United Center at 7:00 p.m.
