VALPARAISO, Ind. -- Sultan Muhammad hit a 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds remaining as Green Bay defeated Illinois-Chicago 64-63 in the quarterfinals of the Horizon League tournament on Friday night.

Two free throws from Gary Talton capped an 11-3 run that gave Illinois-Chicago a 63-61 lead with 7 seconds left. But Keifer Sykes took the ball across the mid-court line and kicked it to Muhammad on the right wing, where he nailed a 24-footer for the game-winner.

Alec Brown scored 17 points for the fourth-seeded Phoenix (18-14), who will face top-seeded Valparaiso Saturday in the semifinals. Sykes added 12 points and Muhammad had 10.

The fifth-seeded Flames (17-15) got 23 points from Hayden Humes and 12 apiece from Josh Crittle and Talton.

Humes scored seven straight points to erase a six-point Phoenix lead and put Chicago ahead 59-58 with 3:05 remaining. Brown hit 1 of 2 free throws to tie it up and the teams then traded baskets, setting up the last-second heroics.
