CHICAGO (AP) - Tai Odiase scored 20 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and swatted away six shots as Illinois-Chicago defeated Milwaukee 71-57 on Tuesday night, leading from start to finish.

Odiase pulled down an offensive rebound and went back up for a lay-in to start the scoring with less than a minute gone, and later dunked after grabbing another offensive board. He blocked back-to-back layup tries by Milwaukee’s Brock Stull to prevent the Panthers from getting closer than three.

Stull, who averages 12.6 ppg, finished 3 of 11 from the field and scored six points. Odiase has 205 career blocks for the Flames (11-8, 4-2 Horizon League).

Chicago scored 18 points off 12 Milwaukee turnovers.
