— Jason Calliste hit two free throws with 12 seconds left as Detroit rallied from 10 points down in the final 3 minutes to edge UW-Milwaukee, 58-57, on Friday.

Ray McCallum scored 18 points for the Titans (14-12,

8-6 Horizon League), who have won two in a row and five of six. Doug Anderson and Calliste added 12 each. Eli Holman grabbed 11 rebounds.

Tony Meier’s 17 points led the Panthers (15-11, 8-6), who have dropped their last three.

After Paris Gulley’s jumper put the Panthers ahead 53-43 with 2:54 left, Detroit used a

13-4 run keyed by six points from McCallum to cut it to

57-56 with 13 seconds to go.

Brown added a layup and Green Bay went 6 of 6 from the free-throw line in the final 58 seconds.

With three blocks, Brown broke his own single-season record of 67 and now has 70.
