UW-Milwaukee basketball beats Saint Xavier as Devon Hancock scores 18 | #schoolshooting


The opportunity was there for Devon Hancock on Thursday, and he made sure to take full advantage.

Afforded ample playing time due to a COVID-19 outbreak that affected a couple of key players, the freshman guard set career highs with 18 points and 6 three-pointers to help lead UW-Milwaukee to a 74-52 victory over Saint Xavier at UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena.

Four other players scored in double figures as well for the Panthers, who were without star freshman Patrick Baldwin Jr., senior guard Josh Thomas and seldom-used junior center Samba Kane after the school announced just prior to tip that “health and safety protocols” would leave them short-handed against their NAIA opponent from Chicago.

Enter Hancock, a Dallas native whose 27 minutes off the bench fell two shy of his total for the season coming into the afternoon.
