Milwaukee-UB game analysis

Game analysis: Zach Filzen scored a career high 30 points as UB defeated Milwaukee, 80-65, in a BracketBuster matchup. The Bulls won one from the heart for coach Reggie Witherspoon, who lost his father, Moses, to cancer last week

How UB won: Filzen can stretch the defense with his deadly shooting, but UB is known for its defense. The Panthers connected on just 10 field in the second half and shot 34.5 percent.

Turning point: Milwaukee cut the lead to six with 14:43 left before Filzen hit a three to push the lead to nine before Javon McCrea hit Jawaan Alston on a bounce pass for a backdoor layup. 

Player of the game: When Filzen's on, UB is hard to beat.

Stat of the game: The Bulls shot a sizzling 62.5 percent in the second half.

He said it: "Keep shooting like that, Zach’’ – UB freshman Javon McCrea to Zach Filzen because when Filzen shoots like that, it opens up the middle for big men like McCrea.

What it means: UB is now 16-9 with four games remaining until MAC Tournament time.

In the house: 3,694 at Alumni Arena.

Next up: 7 p.m. Thursdat at Kent State.
