FinalUWM 59, UALR 54
After 2 missed FTs by UWM, UALR had a chance to tie. But Guy forced a bad 3 and UWM is going to win
Amazing execution by UWM down the stretch. It started with the bad call, but the Panthers have fully taken advantage of it. Back to back layups for a 56-52 lead. :20 left
OMG. Officiating. UWM player slips in the lane, regains balance and passes for layup. 52-50. 1:32 left. LR had taken the lead on a Chuck steal and layup.
2:54-UWM 49, UALR 46-UWM finally gets a layup with Javes and Jackson, both with 4 fouls, powerless to stop it. UWM leads 49-46. Neighbour back in. He's shooting 2 when we come back.
6:44-UWM 46, UALR 44-Again, Milwaukee hasn't made a non-3 in forever. Yet they're making enough 3s to lead.
And now the banked in a 3
Milwaukee getting nothing but 3s.
And the Panthers now playing zone
11:38-UALR 38, UWM 37-Trojan lead was up to 7 before a couple of long 3s by UWM. Neighbour leads with 11.
14:55-UALR 35, UWM 31-Courtney has four fouls. ... Neighbour hanging outback puts UALR up 4. Another timeout at next stop in play.
These officials and their bad calls and makeup calls make this game hard to watch.

10:23-UWM 15, UALR 14-Tight back and forth game so far. Williams' shooting has given Trojans a lift. But as UWM hits that last jumper, Shields tells his players that shooter is too comfortable.
15:42-UALR 6, UWM 5-good defensive start for the Trojans. Lead would be more if not for some really good looks that didn't go in. Williams being a pest defensively. Tramar dis pick up 2 quick fouls.
