Jake Wright hit two 3-pointers and Darius Roy scored the final five points in an 11-4 run that pulled the Panthers even at 54-all with 2:37 left.

Roy had 15 points, Wright added 14 and Amir Allen scored 12 for Milwaukee (9-12, 4-4).
Wright State shot just 34 percent (18 of 53) from the field, including 5 of 27 (19 percent) from 3-point range. The Raiders outscored Milwaukee 15-8 from the free-throw line and used a 12-5 edge on the offensive boards to outscore the Panthers 9-2 in second-chance points.
