OSHKOSH

Scoring in the paint built an initial lead and balance made sure the UW-Oshkosh never was threatened in the second half as the host Titans earned an 86-65 victory over UW-Whitewater in a WIAC men’s basketball game on Wednesday.

The Titans used a 28-10 surge in the first half en route to a 43-29 lead at the break. Adam Fravert scored 19 points to lead five UW-Oshkosh players in double figures. Jack Flynn added 16 points and grabbed eight rebounds for the Titans (16-8, 10-3 WIAC), who clinched a first-round bye in the WIAC tournament.

Junior Equan Ards scored 25 points and grabbed five rebounds to lead the Warhawks (7-17, 2-11). It was the first time in six games that UW-Whitewater did not play a game decided by three points for fewer. In the previous six games, the Warhawks were 1-5.

Freshman Trevon Chislom, a former McFarland player, scored 11 points coming off the bench.

The Warhawks rank last in the WIAC in 3-point percentage. On Tuesday, they made 9 of their 20 attempts. Breontae Hunt finished with eight points and made two 3-pointers. Ards made two 3-pointers and seven other UW-Whitewater players made a 3-pointer.

The Warhawks finished 4 of 10 from the free-throw line.

UW-Whitewater will conclude its season at home against UW-Stout on Saturday at 3 p.m.
