A furious comeback in the second half lost steam in the final minutes as the Green Bay Phoenix saw their season end in a 66-54 loss to Wright State Monday night in Detroit.
The Raiders played tough defense in the first half, limiting the Phoenix to a season-low 20 points. Meanwhile, hot three-point shooting by Bill Wampler helped give the Raiders a 20 point lead early in the second half. That's when the offense and the defense picked up steam, outscoring the Raiders 18-1 over the next several minutes and cut the lead to just three. The Raiders were able to make some tough shots and hit their free throws at the end to not allow the Phoenix to get any closer. Sandy Cohen fouled out of his most likely final game as a member of Green Bay, scoring 13 points in the process.
Barring any postseason invitations, the Phoenix will finish the season at 17-16.
