MILWAUKEE (AP) Austin Arians and Kyle Kelm scored 17 points each to lift UW Milwaukee to a 73-67 win over Bradley on Saturday.
Matt Tiby added 15 points and grabbed six rebounds for Milwaukee (9-2), which won its third straight home game in one of its strongest starts since the 2002-03 season. Jordan Aaron scored nine of his 13 points in the final four minutes, including a 3-pointer that gave the Panthers the lead and another with 39 seconds remaining to put the game out of reach.
Bradley (5-4) took a 39-36 advantage into the break and briefly regained the lead midway through the second half on a Walt Lemon Jr. free throw before Milwaukee took it away for good.
Tyshon Pickett led the Braves with 20 points and seven rebounds, while Lemon added 20 points as well. Bradley outrebounded Milwaukee 39-28 but hit just 2 of 19 from 3-point range.
