Congrats to Phoenix men on CIT victory
After watching its early 18-point lead eventually turn into a nine-point deficit late in the second half, Green Bay came back to beat ETSU 102-94 in the first round of the CIT on Wednesday night at Freedom Hall, claiming the Hugh Durham Classic trophy in the process. Senior Sandy Cohen III poured in a game-high 29 points to claim Hugh Durham Classic MVP. The Phoenix (18-16) was on fire in the first half, shooting 72 percent (23-32) from the field and 69 percent (9-13) from the 3-point line, tying its season high for most points in a half this season with 59. GB led 59-49 at the break, but ETSU stormed back in the second half catching a little fire of its own. ETSU took a 9-point lead at 90-81, but GB closed out the game on a 21-4 run before scoring its most points against a D1 opponent this season with 102. The next game is still TBD. More here.
