GREEN BAY — It's only eight games into the Sundance Wicks era for the UW-Green Bay men's basketball team but they've already surpassed last year's win total of three.
The Phoenix took a 14-point lead over UW-Milwaukee into half-time and never looked back as they caught fire in the first half making 52% of their three-point attempts, making nine in total. They would win by a final score of 70-58.
"Just raise the standard, we talked about in the locker room — we're going to get a lot of back slaps for being .500. People are going to tell us congratulations, we're 4-4. I don't know if there's a lot of teams in the country getting back slaps for being .500, but in relative times you sit back and look at what has been — this is something to celebrate. Something to celebrate that we are on a different path, different trajectory," said Phoenix head coach Sundance Wicks.
Noah Reynolds had a team-high 17 points and 8 assists. Preston Ruedinger (12), Rich Bhyre (10) and Foster Wonders (12) all reached double-figures as well.
