UIS men rallies past Wisconsin-Parkside

The University of Illinois Springfield erased an eight-point deficit in the second half and rallied for a 79-68 victory over Wisconsin-Parkside in a Great Lakes Valley Conference men’s basketball game Thursday.

UIS (6-8 overall, 3-2 in the GLVC) trailed 46-38 with 13 minutes 9 seconds remaining. But the Prairie Stars would take the lead for good on a 3-pointer and a free throw by Jermaine Love-Roberts with 7:55 left. That would spark a 14-6 run by UIS, giving the Stars their third win in the conference.

The win was featured in an January 13, 2012, edition of The State Journal-Register.
