Postgame Report: Milwaukee vs. Cleveland State

Game #22 – Milwaukee 73, Cleveland State 72

Full Recap and Stats

Player Of The Game: Tough to pick just one as so many people played key roles in the win over Cleveland State. Janna Swopshire came up with one of her biggest moments of her UWM career when she hit the game-winner. But, at the end of the day, the Panthers would not have been able to pull out the victory without the all-around play of Angela Rodriguez. She led the way with 16 points but also dished out a season-high 9 assists.

Rodriguez 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: It goes to Swopshire. With 20 seconds left, UWM inbounded down one. Rodriguez passes to Tucker, who found Janna down low in the post. With her back to the basket and double-teamed she willed the shot in and it held up for the victory.

News and Notes: The bench kicked in with 26 points, the third-highest total of the season. Avyanna Young (9 points, 4 boards) and Jordyn Swan (6 points) both hit for season-highs. With a team-best 9 boards today, Sami Tucker went over 700 for her career. She is just the seventh player to accomplish that feat in UWM history.

Up Next: It’s back on the road for a tilt with Valparaiso, scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Thursday.
