Recap: Oakland vs. Ill-Chicago

Rochester, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Duke Mondy buried a 3-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Oakland Golden Grizzlies to a dramatic, 76-75 win over the Illinois-Chicago Flames in a Horizon League tussle at the Athletics Center O'rena.

Kahlil Felder had a team-high 21 points and nine assists, while Travis Bader knocked down five treys and scored 19 points to help the Golden Grizzlies (8-14, 3-4 HL) snap a two-game skid. Mondy (six steals) and Corey Petros finished with 11 points apiece, and Dante Williams scored 10 off the bench.

Jordan Harks had 21 points and Kelsey Barlow scored 20 for the Flames (5-16, 0-7), who lost their 10th game in a row, this one in heartbreaking fashion. Barlow also had seven assists and seven rebounds, although he had five of his team's 22 turnovers. Pat Birt rounded out the double-figure scorers with 11 points in the loss.

UIC had the hot hand early on as it shot 53.1 percent from the floor and made 5-of-8 threes in the first half to take a 40-31 lead into the break.

The Flames shot an even better 61.1 percent from the floor in the second stanza, but they also committed 13 turnovers and allowed the Grizzlies to climb back into the game by shooting 58.1 percent.

Oakland committed only seven turnovers for the game, as its 31-11 advantage in points off turnovers proved to be a key factor in the outcome.
