MILWAUKEE (AP) - Anthony Hill scored 22 points and Wisconsin-Milwaukee held off Wright State 54-53 Sunday.
Tone Boyle added nine points and 10 rebounds for the Panthers (12-11, 7-5 Horizon), who have beaten the Raiders 13 straight times in Milwaukee.
Vaughn Duggins led Wright State (14-9, 7-4) with 26 points while N'Gai Evans had 15.
Milwaukee led by 11 in the second half and was up 50-41 after two free throws by Hill with 6:17 to play. The Raiders, though, quickly cut the gap to three on back-to-back 3-pointers by Duggins and Evans.
After Hill made 1-of-2 free throws, Evans hit another 3 to make it 51-50 with 1:40 remaining. Wright State then committed offensive fouls on each of its next two possessions and Milwaukee held on despite missing 3-of-6 foul shots in the final 37 seconds.
