Phoenix men fall 86-82 on senior day to Northern Kentucky

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Senior day ends with a loss for Sandy Cohen III, the lone senior to be honored in the Phoenix's regular-season finale. It was just the second time this season UWGB has lost at the Resch Center.

The Horizon League regular-season champions, Northern Kentucky, extinguished a late run by Green Bay to win, 86-82. The Norse led by as many as 15 early on.

Despite the loss Saturday afternoon, the Phoenix secured the No. 4 seed in the league tournament. They will play the eventual No. 5 seed at the Resch in the quarterfinals on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Cohen played all 40 minutes and notched a team-high 25 points, including a key three during the Phoenix's run to almost take the game in the final minutes. He has scored 20 or more in four of his last five games.
