Evans’ layup gives Wright State win
FAIRBORN, Ohio (AP)—N’Gai Evans scored on a layup with 9 seconds left to lift Wright State to a 65-64 victory over Wisconsin-Green Bay on Saturday night.
Wright State (18-12, 12-6 Horizon League) led 63-59 after a pair of free throws by Scott Grote with 26 seconds left—the Raiders’ biggest lead of the game.
Five seconds later, Ryan Tillema, who led Green Bay (22-9, 13-5) with 28 points, hit two foul shots. After a Wright State turnover, Troy Cotton hit a jumper and was fouled with 16 seconds remaining, completing the three-point play for a 64-63 lead for the Phoenix.
But the Raiders hurried the ball down the floor and Evans scored on the drive for the go-ahead bucket.
Todd Brown led Wright State with 19 points, with Ronnie Thomas adding 11.
