Nunn's 7 3s, 37 points lift Oakland past Milwaukee, 72-70

ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) Kendrick Nunn hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put Oakland in the lead and tacked on a game-winning jumper as the Golden Grizzlies beat Milwaukee in their Horizon League regular season finale, 72-70, and clinch the No. 4 seed into the Horizon League tournament Saturday afternoon.

Oakland lost its last two games and three of its last four coming in, but has lost just two games in its Division I history on Senior Day.

Carson Warren-Newsome hit a 3 and Brock Stull added a jumper with just under four minutes to play to put Milwaukee in front, 68-63, but Nunn hit from deep with 2:49 remaining to get within two, then hit again from distance with :59 left to put Oakland ahead, 69-68. His jumper with :16 remaining made it 71-68 before Bryce Nze scored at the basket for the Panthers to set the final margin.
