Phoenix knocks off Raiders

The Green Bay Phoenix men's basketball team found its offensive groove Sunday afternoon at the Resch Center, knocking off league-leading Wright State 92-89.

 

The Phoenix struggled from the field on Friday night, but shot 54% from it Sunday afternoon in front of a team that had lost only one league game the entire season up until that point. Despite the hot hand, poor free-throw shooting and turnovers gave the Raiders as much as a nine-point l before going on a pair of game-turning streaks, including an 8-0 run that gave the Phoenix a 57-55 lead. That lead would be as much as seven in the closing minute before staving off a late run by the Raiders that ended with a potential game-tying three going off the rim. Four Phoenix players scored in double figures, led by Amari Davis' 24 points.
