Green Bay, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Greg Mays scored 24 points to lead the Green Bay Phoenix to a 75-72 home win over the Virginia Cavaliers in a non- conference game at the Resch Center.

Keifer Sykes contributed to the win by tallying 21 points and 10 assists for the Phoenix (5-3). Starting forward Jordan Fouse displayed quick hands all night by contributing eight steals to go along with a team-high six rebounds.

Malcolm Brogdon led the Cavaliers (7-3) with 17 points and six rebounds. Anthony Gill and Joe Harris netted 12 points apiece, while Akil Mitchell and Justin Anderson each scored 10.

Neither team could grab a significant advantage until the Phoenix scored on a 3-pointer, two free throws and a layup in the final 90 seconds to take the lead.
