Recap: Drake vs. Green Bay

Des Moines, IA (Sports Network) - Ben Simons paced four teammates in double figures with 16 points as the Drake Bulldogs dismissed the Green Bay Phoenix, 71-54, in a BracketBusters contest at the Knapp Center.

Seth VanDeest tallied a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds for Drake (13-15), while Chris Hines scored 14 points on 4-of-6 from 3-point range. Kori Babineaux chipped in 10 points and seven boards off the bench for the Bulldogs, who have won two in a row on the heels of a four-game losing streak.

Keifer Sykes and Brennan Cougill each netted 12 points for Green Bay (15-13), as it snapped a three-game winning streak.
