Men take it to the wire against league-leading Wright State
Hoping to surprise the Horizon League leader on its home floor on Thursday night, Green Bay battled Wright State from start to finish before coming up just short 68-64 in the final seconds at the Nutter Center. The Phoenix (10-17, 5-9 HL) took an 11-point lead with just under 11 minutes remaining in the game, but the Raiders (19-7, 11-2 HL) responded with a 12-0 run to get back the momentum and the eventual nail-biting victory. Green Bay will make the short drive south to Highland Heights, Ky., where it will face Northern Kentucky next. The Phoenix and Norse, which beat Milwaukee on Thursday, will tip at 6 p.m. CT on Saturday (Feb. 10) night at BB&T Arena.
