Phoenix men lose to Wright State, remain winless on the road
DAYTON, OH (WLUK) - Despite a career-high 18 points from David Jesperson and a double-double from Sandy Cohen (21 pts, 10rbs), the Green Bay Phoenix fell to Horizon League co-leader Wright State 68-64.
The game was tied at 58, when the under-4 minute media timeout hit, and GB held possession. Cohen turned it over and Grant Benzinger scored five-straight points to give the Raiders the 63-58 lead, before David Jesperson made four-straight free throws to cut the deficit to one at 63-62 with 44 seconds left.
The ensuing possession, Jaylon Hall was fouled after grabbing his missed 3-point attempt and went on to make one of his two attempts. GB got the ball back with 13 seconds left, but Kameron Hankerson turned it over with 6 seconds left and WSU iced the game away at the free throw line from there.
The Phoenix are now 0-12 on the road this season, and now head to Northern Kentucky to take on the Horizon League co-leader Norse on Saturday.
