Panthers relive '14 conference title game in win over Wright State

For one night at least, it was March of 2014 again for the Panthers of UW-Milwaukee. In a rematch of the Horizon League Championship game from last March, the Panthers played one of their sharpest games of the season in a 67-41 win at the UWM Panther Arena Tuesday night.

Justin Jordan shot 6-of-7 from the floor and scored 17 points to lead the Panthers (7-12, 2-3 Horizon League). Matt Tiby added 12, Steve McWhorter 10, and Akeem Springs tallied 13 rebounds to go with his 9 points. UWM opened up a 20 point lead before the half and never looked back.

Combined with last Wednesday's win over Youngstown State, the Panthers have won consecutive games for just the second time this season.
