Milwaukee 80, Cleveland State 78

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Steph Kostowicz's reverse layup just before the buzzer sent the Milwaukee women's basketball team home with a thrilling 80-78 victory over Cleveland State Thursday morning in front of a school day crowd of 1,329 from the Wolstein Center.

Milwaukee (14-6, 6-3 Horizon) started the game slowly and faced a barrage right out of the gates from the host Vikings (10-10, 5-4 Horizon), only to erase an early 13-point deficit in the first half alone.

The game featured eight ties and 13 lead changes. It was also awfully reminiscent of the last time the two teams met – a 59-58 Panther win at home over the Vikings after Sierra Ford-Washington hit a game winner with just seconds left on the clock last February.


Green Bay 84, Youngstown State 51

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Increasing its winning streak to 10 games, the No. 24/25 Green Bay women’s basketball team continued its recent display of dominance and defeated Youngstown State 84-51 at the Beeghly Center on Thursday night.

The Phoenix (18-2, 9-0) gave up an uncharacteristic 19 first-quarter points to the Penguins (7-13, 3-6) and found itself trailing 19-18 after Indiya Benjamin hit a deep three-pointer at the buzzer. Green Bay, however, wasted no time responding to the deficit in the second quarter and opened with a 7-0 run to lead 26-19. The runs for the Phoenix didn’t end there, as a 14-0 run to end the half helped Green Bay take a 16-point advantage (40-24) into the locker room at the midway point.
