    CLEVELAND — Austin Arians scored 13 points and Milwaukee survived a late scare from Cleveland State to earn a 65-62 win on Saturday.

    Milwaukee (12-5, 3-1 Horizon) led 39-27 at halftime and scored the first six of the first eight points of the second half to take a 45-29 lead. A Matt Tiby 3-pointer 14:28 to go gave the Panthers a 53-35 lead, their largest of the game.

    Then the Vikings (5-12, 0-4) started to chip away with Jibri Blount hitting back-to-back jumpers to ignite a 10-0 run which cut the Milwaukee lead to 60-56 with 5:21 left, but Cleveland State could not get all the way back.

    Two Jordan Johnson free throws with 22 seconds remaining for Milwaukee made it 65-60. The Vikings had a final chance to tie but Andre Yates turned it over.

    J.J. Panoske added 12 points for Milwaukee. Yates had 15 for Cleveland State.
