MILWAUKEE -- Jud Dillard was one of four players in double figures for the Golden Eagles, scoring 17 points and grabbing 11 rebounds to lead Tennessee Tech to a 69-58 victory over Milwaukee on Saturday night.
Sparked by Jeremia Samarrippas, who scored five of his team's first 10 points, Tennessee Tech (6-4) took an early 10-0 lead and never looked back. The Golden Eagles shot 47.5 percent from the field, hitting 28 of 59 shots, but were a dismal 3 of 17 from beyond the arc.
Samarrippas finished the game with 10 points, six assists and four steals.
Aaron Jordan scored 15 points to lead Milwaukee (3-9) and James Haarsma had 14 points and 14 rebounds.
The Panthers were 15 of 16 from the free-throw line, but shot only 32.2 percent from the field.
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
