The Green Bay Phoenix (22-8, 13-4 Horizon League) clinched a top-two seed and two byes into the semifinals of the Horizon League Championship after defeating the Detroit Titans (7-21, 2-15) 78-62 in Detroit on Thursday night.
Ryan Tillema, who is the second leading scorer in the league, finished with a game-high 18 points, while Green Bay teammate Troy Cotton poured in 17. The Phoenix hit 50% of its field goals (23 of 46), 50% of its 3-pointers (8 of 16) and hit 24 of 33 free throws.
It's the 7th road win of the season for Green Bay, tying the 2004-05 squad for the most true road wins in a season over the last 13 years. Green Bay closes out its season Saturday night at Wright State. They could still secure the #1 seed and a co-championship if they win Saturday and Butler loses its final game.
