The Green Bay Phoenix overcame a bad shooting night at the free throw line to hold off Pacific 93-88 at the Resch Center on Tuesday night.
The Phoenix attempted 44 free throws and made just 22 which made the game much closer than it should have been.
Green Bay did force the Tigers into a season-high 23 turnovers, which led to 22 points.
Both teams shot well from the field. Pacific hit 54.2%, while Green Bay hit 53% from the field. The Phoenix also hit 7 of 17 three pointers.
Green Bay senior guard Carrington Love poured in 29 points to lead five players in double figures. Charles Cooper added 15 points, Turner Botz had a career-high 12 and Khalil Small and Jamar Hurdle added ten each.
The Phoenix improved to 5-and-4 and now has five wins in the last six games. They’ll host UW-Superior on Sunday afternoon, then face the Badgers in Madison next Wednesday in what will be interim head coach Greg Gard’s first game on the Badgers bench without Bo Ryan.
