Badgers drop UNI, 69-38, in sold out exhibition opener-will honor Eldon Miller Sunday

Posted: Updated:

Wisconsin used a 22-2 first half run to stop UNI, 69-38,  in a men's basketball exhibition game Wednesday night at a sold out Kohl Center in Madison.

The game was a last-minute addition to the UNI basketball exhibition schedule and a fund-raiser for hurricane relief.

Wisconsin native Juwan McCloud (Germantown, Wis.) led the Panthers with 10 points and tied for team-high honors with four rebounds against the Badgers.

McCloud scored UNI's first 10 points of the game and helped the Panthers jump out to a 10-2 lead with 13:20 left in the first half. But the Badgers answered with a 20-2 run capped by a three-pointer from Kobe King with 6:11 remaining in the first half. The Badgers led 35-18 at the intermission.

UNI scored the first seven points of the second half on baskets from sophomore Isaiah Brown (Flower Mound, Texas) and Tywhon Pickford (Minneapolis, Minn.) that trimmed the Badger lead to 35-25. The Badgers went on a 27-3 run to take a 62-28 lead with 5:31 left in the contest.

UNI will be back in action Sunday at 1 p.m. in the McLeod Center with its second exhibition game vs. UNC Pembroke.

The Panthers will honor former head coach Eldon MIller and the 1989-90 UNI men's basketball squad as a part of the weekend festivities.

Tickets to Sunday's game are $5.
