Dayton, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Alec Brown scored 24 points on 8-of-11 shooting to help the Green Bay Phoenix stay unbeaten in conference play with a 79-69 win over the Wright State Raiders on Friday.

Keifer Sykes donated 18 points, seven assists and six rebounds for Green Bay (14-3, 4-0 Horizon), winners in nine straight games. Greg Mays added 14 points and seven boards off the bench, while Jordan Fouse scored 10.

Reggie Arceneaux led five Raiders (11-9, 3-2) in double digits, posting 17 points on 7-of-10 from the floor in the setback. Jerran Young and Cole Darling netted 13 points apiece, Miles Dixon chipped in 12 points and A.J. Pacher had 10.
