UWM rally comes up short in Vegas

Facing a 15 point deficit in the second half, UWM's Panthers nearly pulled out an improbable comeback victory in Las Vegas.

Cody Wichmann's potential game-tying three pointer at the buzzer missed, though, and the Panthers came up short against Oral Roberts 69-66 Wednesday at the MGM Grand Main Event.

Steve McWhorter scored 21, 15 after halftime, to lead the Panthers (2-4). UWM shot 54 percent in the second half.

Rob Jeter's Panthers play four of their next five games at home, starting with Concordia-St. Paul Saturday.
