Gulley scored 13, and Aaron had 12 on 3-of-15 shooting. … The Panthers have lost six games in a row nine of their last 10. Their only win in that stretch was Jan. 17 against Cleveland State (69-57). … Milwaukee ranks second-to-last in the Horizon League in scoring (61.4) and last in defense (70.2).

Coach Billy Donlon on Milwaukee: “They have some great strengths. They played Detroit really well. I believe they just haven’t made as many winning plays. You go back to the game at our place. They could have easily won that game. The Detroit game, they were right there. Rob (Jeter) is a great coach. It’s just been one of those years.”
