MILWAUKEE -- Paris Gulley scored 17 points to lead Milwaukee to a 64-53 victory against Illinois-Chicago on Wednesday night.
Gary Talton had 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the Flames (15-12, 6-8), who shot 35.1 percent (20 of 57) from the floor en route to losing for the fourth time in five games.
After trailing by double digits in the second half, Illinois-Chicago got within 53-48 with two minutes remaining. But Evan Richard hit a jumper for Milwaukee, and after Talton turned the ball over, the Panthers began their procession to the foul line.
Aaron had seven rebounds.
Leaving early for the NBA is a risky decision. Some players -- Skal Labissiere, Dejounte Murray -- slid in the draft. Some -- Isaiah Taylor, Troy Williams -- weren't drafted at all.
