Saturday's state roundup: Milwaukee edges Detroit

Associated Press

Milwaukee, Wis. — Jordan Johnson scored a career-high 25 points as Milwaukee edged Detroit 83-80 on Saturday afternoon.

Jordan finished with 7-of-10 shooting from the field including three from distance for the Panthers (14-6, 5-2 Horizon League). Matt Tiby added 14 points and J.J. Panoske and Akeem Springs had 12 points each.

Detroit trailed 20-13 midway through the first half but surged 15-3 after that to go ahead 28-23 with 3:56 left in the period, and the Titans (9-9, 3-4) led 37-31 at the break.

Johnson sank a 3-pointer and a layup as part of a 16-10 Milwaukee surge to start the second half that tied the game, 47-47, with 16:01 to play. A dunk by Tiby sparked an 11-5 run that gave the Panthers a 66-60 lead with 9:08 remaining and they never trailed after that.

Chris Jenkins scored 20 points and grabbed six rebounds for the Titans.

Oakland 111, (at) Green Bay 95: Kahil Felder scored 29 points with 14 assists. Felder finished with 4-of-12 shooting from the field and 19-of-22 from the line for the Golden Grizzlies (12-8, 4-3 Horizon League). Max Hooper sank nine 3-pointers for a career-high 27 points and Jaylen Hayes added 24.

Hooper hit three 3-pointers in the first half, helping Oakland to a 48-47 lead with 1:04 left in the period. Green Bay’s Charles Cooper sank a trey of his own after that, putting Green Bay on top 50-49 at halftime.

Oakland started the second half with a 13-2 surge to go up 62-52 with 15:40 remaining. Green Bay got as close as 69-64 with 11:57 left but Hooper dropped five more 3-pointers and Felder went 10 for 10 from the line in the final 11 minutes to seal the Oakland win.

Carrington Love scored 21 points for the Phoenix (12-8, 4-3).

Ball State 88, (at) Eastern Michigan 87 (2 OT): Francis Kiapway hit seven 3-pointers — including one in the last second of the second overtime. Ty Toney’s acrobatic layup plus a free throw put the Eagles up 87-86 with 26.5 seconds left. Kiapway, who finished with 22 points, missed a 3 with 16.7 seconds remaining. The Eagles’ Brandon Nazione got the rebound but Ryan Weber ripped the ball away and found Kiapway, who launched the winning shot just beyond the top of the arc.

Jeremie Tyler added 17 points and Franko House 15 for the Cardinals (13-6, 4-2 Mid-American). Bo Calhoun had 14 points and 14 boards.

Toney and James Thompson IV had 23 points each for the Eagles (10-9, 2-4) with Thompson grabbing 14 rebounds.

Weber missed a deep 3 in the closing seconds of regulation. In the first overtime, Nazione’s free throws with 3 seconds tied it at 77-all.

(At) Central Michigan 72, Ohio 49: Braylon Rayson and Luke Meyer each scored 14 points and Central Michigan pulled away in the second half. Rayson added seven rebounds and Meyer had six. Chris Fowler finished with 11 points and nine assists for Central Michigan (10-9, 3-3 MAC), which shot 50.8 percent from the field while holding Ohio to a season-low 49 points on 37.3 percent shooting and 3 of 15 from 3-point range.

John Simons made a layup early in the second half which gave the Chippewas a double-digit lead. Central Michigan continued to maintain a double-figure lead through much of the second half. A Fowler jumper with 2:38 left made the lead 19, and a Corey Redman 3 on the final possession pushed it to 72-49.

Antonio Campbell scored 17 points and pulled down 12 rebounds for Ohio (11-7, 2-4).

(At) Western Michigan 91, Buffalo 71: Tucker Haymond scored 27 points, a career high. Haymond was 9 of 14 from the floor and 5 of 8 beyond the arc for the Broncos (8-11, 2-4 Mid-American). Thomas Wilder scored 20 points, going 11 of 14 from the line, and Bryce Moore added 15 points. Western Michigan shot nearly 51 percent and made 13 of 21 3-point attempts.

Buffalo (10-9, 3-3) was led by Willie Conner with 17 points. Nick Perkins scored 13 points, Blake Hamilton had 11 points and eight rebounds and Jarryn Skeete added 10.

Western Michigan raced out to a 17-2 lead — including a pair of 3-pointers by Haymond. A 13-4 run near the end of the first half put the Broncos up 48-30 at intermission and Buffalo never really threatened after the break.
