Cleveland Melvin's 27 points couldn't help DePaul get by Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

After surprisingly wins against Mississippi and Texas Tech earlier this season, the DePaul Blue Demons have now dropped back-to-back games after falling to Wisconsin-Milwaukee in a non-conference game at Allstate Arena on Monday. The loss drops DePaul to 4-3 on the year.

Sophomore forward Cleveland Melvin powered the Blue Demons in the loss. Melvin finished with 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting and also grabbed three rebounds. Sophomore guard Brandon Young added 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting for DePaul.

The Milwaukee Panthers were led by Kaylon Williams, who had 21 points and five rebounds. Teammate Tony Meier had 20 points behind 5-for-5 three-point shooting off the bench. Guard Paris Gully added 19 points and four rebounds in the win.

The Panthers held big advantages in three-pointers and free throws. Milwaukee made 11-of-20 three-pointers and 18-of-30 free throws, while the Blue Demons finished just 3-for-18 from three-point range and 9-for-16 from the line.

Next up for DePaul is a December 7 contest at Loyola (Ill.). The Blue Demons play their first conference game when they host No. 3 Syracuse on January 1.
