Milwaukee's defense kept the Green Bay Phoenix men in check from behind the arc in their 87-80 loss Saturday night while the women went wire to wire in their 65-48 win.
For the women in Detroit, Saturday afternoon's win took away the sting of falling to Oakland earlier in the week. Karly Murphy scored 16 points and Hailey Oskey chipped in 11 on the day. The Phoenix took control early, jumping out to 23-6 first-quarter lead. The Phoenix dominated in the paint, outscoring the Titans 42-10.
At the Resch Center in Green Bay, the Phoenix men were uncharacteristically quiet from three-point land. They did not hit their first three-point shot until late in the second half and went 4-12 on the evening. The Panthers, on the other hand, hit 11 of their 21 attempts led by Te'jon Lucas' 31 points. Amari Davis scored 28 points and Jayquan McCloud added 23 points in the loss.
