Brown, Sykes lead Green Bay by Wright State 57-56
WISC GREEN BAY 57, WRIGHT ST 56
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Alec Brown blocked a Horizon
League-record 11 shots and Kiefer Sykes made two free throws
with three seconds left as Green Bay defeated Wright State 57-56
Sykes, who turned 18 on Dec. 30 and is believed to be the
youngest player in Division I, led the Phoenix (7-10, 3-4) with
16 points, and Kam Cerroni added 11. Brown had nine points, and
his shot-block total eclipsed his own school record of eight and
the Horizon mark of nine by Scott VanderMeer of Illinois-Chicago
The Division I blocks record is 16, by Mickell Gladness of
Alabama A&M against Texas Southern on Feb. 24, 2007.
Julius Mays scored 15 points and Reggie Arceneaux 11 for the
Raiders (9-11, 4-4).
Green Bay overcame a 17-point second-half deficit to lead by two
in the final minute, but Mays' three-point play with 13 seconds
remaining gave Wright State a 56-55 advantage. The Phoenix took
possession, and Sykes was fouled by Tavares Sledge.
