CHICAGO — Jarod Williams hit a pair of free throws with 2 seconds left after Detroit forced two turnovers, completing a late rally for a 69-68 win over Illinois-Chicago on Wednesday night.

The Titans (9-9, 3-1 Horizon) erased a 13-point, second-half deficit, chipping away to tie the game at 63 after a layup by Chris Jenkins.

Jay Harris answered with a 3-pointer for the Flames (5-14, 1-3) and Lance Whitaker sank two free throws for a 68-64 lead with 51 seconds left.

Jenkins came up with a steal and dunked to make it 68-67 with 3 seconds remaining. UIC attempted a long inbounds pass, but turned it over and fouled in the process, setting up Williams for his go-ahead free throws.

Paris Bass led Detroit with 19 points, Juwan Howard Jr. added 14 and Jenkins 13.

Harris paced the Flames with 22 points and Jake Wiegand had 14.
