Milwaukee goes bombs away, then lays up for victory at UALR

Eric Lawton's missed layup would
have tied the game at 46-46.
It looked for a while like Wisconsin-Milwaukee might go the entire second half without making a two-point field goal. Then again, they didn’t need any. They made open threes, contested threes and even banked in a three as the Panthers erased a seven-point UALR lead on Saturday.

In all, that was seven three pointers before they hit their first two pointer. And when they hit their first two-pointer with 3:26 left in the game, it helped put the Trojans away. They were only 4 of 9 inside the arc in the second half. But all for were layups. And all four were back-breakers.

  • Kyle Kelm’s layup with 3:26 left extended their lead to 49-46.
  • James Haarsma’s layup with 2:08 left allowed Milwaukee to retake the lead at 51-50. He was also fouled on the play and made the free throw for a 52-50 lead.
  • Haarsma’s layup with 1:13 left made it 54-50.
  • And Haarsma’s layup with 29 seconds left made it 56-50.

Milwaukee was 4 of 9 inside the arc in the second half. And they were 7 of 13 outside of it.
