The UW-Milwaukee Panthers (2-7) fall to the Colorado Buffaloes (8-3), 65-54, in Boulder.
UWM played a really good first 35 minutes of the game, but couldn’t finish the job as Colorado went on a 14-2 run over the final 5:22 to win the game.
It’s been a very frustrating start to the season for the Panthers.
Junior Jordan Lathon played well and led UWM with 14 points on 5-of-10 from the field, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range and grabbed three rebounds to go along with three assists.
Patrick Baldwin Jr. struggled tonight and got ate up in the last few minutes. PBJ scored 12 points, but was 3-of-13 from the field, 2-of-10 from 3-point range and 4-of-7 at the free throw line. He did have five rebounds, but only had one assist and committed two turnovers.
The Panthers shot 20-of-55 (36.4%) from the field, 7-of-24 (29.2%) from 3-point range and 7-of-11 (63.6%) at the free throw line. UWM only had seven assists and committed 14 turnovers, which is not good for either stat.
UWM will welcome the Rhode Island Rams (7-3) to UWM Panther Arena on Monday, December 13th. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00 PM (Central Time) and will be televised on ESPN+.
