Postgame Report: Milwaukee at Wright State

Game #24 – Milwaukee 74, Wright State 61

Full Recap and Stats

Player Of The Game: Tough choice. Angela Rodriguez was whistled for 2 fouls in the first 90 seconds and appeared that may have an impact on her night. However, she responded with 19 points, netting No. 1,000 late in the contest. But, Sami Tucker also had a brilliant night, scoring 18 points and tying her career-high with 14 rebounds. You pick.

Tucker joined radio play-by-play announcer Scott Warras after the game as his player of the game. Listen to her comments HERE.

Play of the Game: In all honesty, besides the fact that it was her 1,000th point, the three that Rodriguez hit came at a huge spot in the game. WSU had tried numerous times to get back in it and her back-to-back 3's (the first one was #1,000) were the cap of 8 in a row by UWM and pushed the lead back to 12.

News and Notes: With Rodriguez joining Tucker in the 1,000-point club, it marks the first time in program history that UWM has had two players cross the milestone in the same season. Milwaukee keeps shooting - and making - three's at a historic level. The Panthers broke school records for 3's made and 3's attempted tonight - and still have at least 5 games to add to the totals.

Up Next: Next up, the Panthers remain on the road once again, traveling down to Chicago for a contest against Loyola Thursday. Tip off is set for 7 p.m.
