UWM hangs on in strange finish, 83-80 over Detroit

UW-Milwaukee's Panthers poured in 52 points in the second half, then hung on in a wild finish for an 83-80 Horizon League win over Detroit Saturday at the UWM Panther Arena.

Jordan Johnson scored 25 points to lead the Panthers (14-6, 5-2 Horizon), who also got double digit days from Matt Tiby, Akeem Springs, Austin Arians, and J.R. Lyle. In the final seconds, following an inbounds, Johnson was originally called for an offensive foul along the sideline. Following a lengthy official review, the call was reversed and Detroit's Josh McFolley was called for a technical foul for simulating the foul call. Tiby then made both free throws and a final press break from Springs to Tiby to Lyle opened the way for the slam dunk that put it away with 10 seconds left.

The Panthers host Oakland University from Michigan Monday.
