Oakland completed a sweep of the Wisconsin road swing in the Horizon League by winning at Wisconsin-Milwaukee 82-79. Kahlil Felder (17 points, 12 assists) against Jordan Johnson (20 points, nine assists) was a virtual draw in a battle of the nation’s two leading assist men, but the Golden Grizzlies received a big assist from Max Hooper, who scored 21 on seven three-pointers. Milwaukee played without Akeem Springs, its No. 2 scorer (14.3 ppg) who missed the game with a leg injury.
Meanwhile, Wisconsin-Green Bay survived Detroit 115-108 in overtime despite committing the same sin, fouling the Titans’ Anton Wilson as he made a three from the corner with six seconds left and eventually sent the game to overtime. Normally known for his defense, Green Bay’s Jordan Fouse scored a career-best 30 points and added 14 rebounds.
