Jordan Aaron scored 18 points to lead the UW-Milwaukee Panthers to a 67-63 come-from-behind victory over the UIC Flames on Thursday night in Chicago.

The Panthers (13-6, 3-2 Horizon League) took its first lead of the game on an 11-2 run midway through the second half that included a trio of 3-pointers, then jumped on top again with 5-minutes left on a pair of Aaron free throws and held on for the win.

The Flames (5-13, 0-4) led 36-23 at the halftime break.
