Recap: Green Bay vs. Wright State

Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - JT Yoho scored a career-high 19 points for the Wright State Raiders as they outlasted the Green Bay Phoenix for a 70-68 double-overtime win in a Horizon League thriller at the Resch Center.

Yoho was 7-of-10 from the field and 5-of-8 from 3-point range for the Raiders (16-8, 7-4 Horizon), who won for the second time in a row after a three-game slump. Miles Dixon scored 13 points and Jerran Young added 11. The only three players to score in double-figures for Wright State all came off the bench.

Green Bay (12-12, 6-5) was led by 17 points from Alec Brown, who also had two blocks and two steals to go along with seven turnovers. Keifer Sykes scored 16 points, Cole Stefan added 11, and Jordan Fouse led all players in rebounding with 15 boards which he accompanied with three blocks and three steals.The Phoenix have lost two of their last three games.

After shooting just 40.7 percent from the floor in the first half, Wright State trailed 32-28 at intermission.

Although the Raiders dropped to an even worse 37.0 percent shooting clip in the second half, the Phoenix made only 25.0 percent of their field goal tries which allowed Wright State to come back and outscore Green Bay, 24-20. Yoho hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 52-52 with 1:57 to go. Neither team was able to score the rest of regulation and the game went to overtime.

The Raiders did not have a lead once in the first overtime but with two seconds left, Dixon hit a clutch shot from beyond the arc to send the game into a second overtime period.

Wright State had not had the lead since the 8:40 mark of the second half, but with 11 seconds remaining in the second overtime, Yoho hit another 3-pointer to put the Raiders on top 70-68 and they were able to hold on for the win.

Despite being outrebounded and taking only six shots from the free-throw line compared to 33 for Green Bay, the Raiders' three-point shooting set them apart, as Wright State knocked down 11-of-20 attempts from distance and the Phoenix made just 5-of-14 of their 3-point tries.
