The University of Wisconsin-Superior men’s basketball team kept its playoff hopes alive with a 70-59 win over UW-Stout Wednesday night at Johnson Fieldhouse in Menomonie.

The Yellowjackets held a 35-34 halftime lead and only trailed once briefly in the second half to improve to 7-15 overall and 4-9 in the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

Four Yellowjackets scored in double figures, led by 15 points apiece by Brian Lindblom and Aaron Corry. Bronson Byrne added 14 points and Jarrod Peterson chipped in with 10 for the Yellowjackets.

Jimmy Whitehead scored 10 points but was just 2-for-11 shooting as the Blue Devils (12-10, 7-6) shot only 32 percent from the field, including 1-for-15 from 3-point range. Stout made its lone 3-pointer with 22 seconds left in the game.

The Yellowjackets are two games behind UW-Oshkosh (11-11, 6-7) for the final playoffs spot. After hosting UW-La Crosse Saturday and UW-River Falls Wednesday, UWS wraps up its season at Oshkosh on Feb. 22.

Oshkosh’s remaining games are against the top two teams in the WIAC, UW-Whitewater and UW-Stevens Point.

Saturday’s home game with UWLC begins at 5 p.m.
