SUPERIOR — A dismal offensive start doomed Wisconsin-Superior men's basketball in an 81-49 Upper Midwest Athletic Conference home loss to Crown on Wednesday at Mertz Mortorelli Gym.

The Yellowjackets found themselves down 38-14 at halftime after making only 5 of 25 field-goal attempts and committing five first-half turnovers. Meanwhile, Crown made 62.5 percent from the field (15-for-24) in the same time frame. The game remained lopsided through the second half.

Cade Carroll was a blistering 10-of-13 from the field and 3-of-3 from 3-point range to score 25 points for Crown. Josef Fahrenholtz had nine points in 13 minutes for UWS, which ended up being their leading scoring effort.

UWS (6-10, 3-3 UMAC) will try to regroup for a Saturday home game vs. Northland.
