Game #6 – Milwaukee 84, New Mexico State 81
Full Recap and Stats
Player Of The Game: Angela Rodriguez was brilliant, tying her career high with 30 points. She came up with big shots all game long and finished 10-for-10 from the line for one of the best 100% performances on free throws in program history. But, Macie Dorow's effort cannot be overlooked either. She got the first start of the season, blwoing past her previous career-high of 7 points already by halftime (she has 12) and tying her career-best with 5 rebounds.

Play of the Game: There were a lot of key plays, but the biggest in my eyes was the 4 free throws shot by Sydney Snower in the final 79 seconds. UWM trailed by 1 the first time she was fouled and calmly made both to put UWM back ahead. She made two more with 11 seconds left that pushed the lead back to 3. Not only were those her only 4 attempts on the day, but those were her first four tries from the charity stripe on the season.
Key Stats: The Panthers shot a season-high 47.4 percent on the day and sank half of their 3's with 11 makes on 22 tries. The Pan Am Center was a good spot for UWM to find its long-range groove, making 11 today and 10 yesterday against Lamar.
News and Notes: Avyanna Young grabbed 10 rebounds and scored 10 points to record her second career double-double. The team technically grabbed a share of the weekend tournament crown as all 4 teams finished 1-1.
Up Next: It's back to Wisconsin tomorrow and a return to the Klotsche Center Wednesday for an early 11 a.m. tip.
