Eastern Michigan Holds Off Green Bay In 67-58 Win

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — Ray Lee scored 17 points to help Eastern Michigan snap a three-game losing streak with a 67-58 victory over Green Bay Tuesday night.

Lee was 5 of 9 from the field, including two 3-pointers, as the Eagles (5-3) took control of the game with a 12-0 run midway through the first half to build a lead that would never be challenged. Karrington Ward, who entered the game averaging 16.5 points per game, was held to 13 points but hauled in seven rebounds. Da’Shonte Riley and Mike Talley added 11 apiece.

Green Bay (5-3) outscored the Eagles in the second half 40-38 but never drew closer than seven points in the final stretch. Alec Brown led the Phoenix with a game-high 19 points and 10 rebounds, while Keifer Sykes added 13 points.

Eastern Michigan shot 43.9 percent from the field and had six fewer turnovers than Green Bay’s 18.
