GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Phoenix had dominated their series with Youngstown state prior to this season. The Phoenix had won 29 of 30 meetings. The Penguins turned the table this season. They completed a season sweep on Sunday with a 72-63 win. It’s the first time Green Bay has been swept by a conference foe since UW-Milwaukee did it during the 2005-2006 season.

Youngstown State made hay from long range shooting 10 of 18 from beyond the arc. They also out rebounded the Phoenix 42-30.  Green Bay couldn’t find the same success from long range shooting just 7 of 22 from three point range.

Kaili Lukan and Sam Terry both scored 13 points to lead Green Bay. Breannah Ranger added 12 points off the bench while Tesha Buck chipped in 11 points.

The Phoenix, Youngstown State, and Wright State share first place in the Horizon League at 9-3. Green Bay and Wright State meet when the Phoenix return to the court on Thursday.
