Big win for Phoenix women in Horizon opener
A balanced attack that featured five players in double figures helped push the Green Bay women’s basketball team to a 68-59 victory over Wright State in its Horizon League opener on Wednesday night in Dayton, Ohio. The Phoenix (11-3, 1-0 HL) wanted nothing more to erase the memories of last year’s defeat on its home floor to the Raiders (11-4, 0-1 HL), and did just that with a huge road victory to open conference play. Senior point guard Megan Lukan had 14 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, while Mehryn Kraker and Tesha Buck each had 11 points, and reserves Allie LeClaire and Sam Terry combined for another 22 points. The Horizon home opener for the Phoenix will take place at 1 p.m. this Saturday (Jan. 10) vs. conference contender Youngstown State.
