UIC tops cold Wright State 55-49

By

DAYTON, Ohio -- Gary Talton scored a game-high 18 points to lead Illinois-Chicago to a 55-49 victory over ice-cold Wright State Saturday night in Horizon League play.

The Flames (13-8, 4-4) took a 26-14 halftime lead, then withstood Wright State (14-7, 5-3) in the second half.

The Raiders made just 33 percent of their shots from the floor, hitting 18 of 54 attempts. That included a frigid 2 for 19 performance (10.5 percent) from 3-point range. Reggie Arceneaux missed all seven of his 3-point attempts while Cole Darling -- who led Wright State with 11 points -- missed all four of his shots from long range.

J.T. Yoho made both Wright State treys, going 2 for 4 from beyond the arc.

Talton's 18 points included an 11-for-14 effort at the foul line. The Flames were 20 for 26 from the line, while Wright State was 11 of 13.
