MILWAUKEE (AP) - Thomas Wilder scored 16 points and blocked a 3-point attempt with a second left and Western Michigan beat Milwaukee 69-66 on Friday night.

With seven seconds to go, Brandon Johnson made the first and missed the second free throw to put the Broncos ahead 66-63. Brock Stull grabbed the rebound and threw ahead to Jeremy Johnson who raced to the right wing to get off the 3-attempt.

Johnson initially had an open look before a sprinting Wilder chased him down, leaped and deflected the shot and Western Michigan (7-5) secured it as time expired.

Wilder made a pair of free throws with 14 seconds to go for a 65-60 Broncos lead before Jeremiah Bell buried a 3 five seconds later. Wilder made 6 of 7 shots, including a pair of 3s, had six rebounds and passed out five assists.

Stull led Milwaukee (7-6) with 23 points on 6-for-11 shooting behind the 3-point line.
