    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Keifer Sykes scored 19 points to help Green Bay clinch a share of the Horizon League title with a 67-53 win over Valparaiso on Wednesday.

    The Phoenix (22-5, 12-2) hit 22 of 25 free throws to avenge a 15-point loss at Valparaiso (16-12, 8-5) three weeks earlier.

    Alec Brown scored 14 points and blocked eight shots and Jordan Fouse had 12 points and 10 rebounds for Green Bay, which finished with 12 blocked shots. Brown now has 301 blocks, just the second in league history to reach 300 and he is just nine shy of setting the league record.

    Alec Peters and Jubril Adekoya had 11 points apiece for the Crusaders, who went 5 of 7 from the foul line.

    Green Bay opened a quick 13-2 lead but Valparaiso only led 30-27 at the half when Alfonzo McKinnie knocked down a 3-pointer. They quickly punched the lead back to 12.
