DAYTON, Ohio (AP)—Cory Cooperwood scored 16 points and N’Gai Evans poured in four of Wright State’s final seven points, leading the Raiders in a 68-63 win over Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Thursday night.
After Ja’Rob McCallum hit a 3-pointer to pull the Panthers even at 61-all, Evans hit two free throws to give Wright State a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. The foul shots sparked a 7-2 Raiders run in the game’s final 2:57.
