Senior Bryquis Perine hit a game-winner in overtime Monday night.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - In what might be his last game at the Resch Center, senior Bryquis Perine (Milwaukee, Wis.) left a lasting impression on the Green Bay (13-16, 7-9 HL) fans, hitting a game-winning jumper with 11 seconds left in overtime to lead his Phoenix squad to an 81-80 victory over visiting Valparaiso (20-9, 11-5 HL) Monday night.

The senior had just two points with 9:35 to play in the second half, but he scored 11 points down the stretch, including a bucket with 38 seconds remaining to give the Phoenix a 72-70 lead. The Crusaders tied the score with a layup on the next possession, and after both teams missed on their last possessions, the contest went to an extra five minutes.

Perine took over in the extra session, hitting all three of his shots from the field and scoring seven points. His team had lost five-straight games, including three on shots in the last seconds, but Perine was determined to end the streak for the Phoenix.

With 18 seconds left, the Phoenix got the ball to Perine, who drove right and knocked down his patented pull-up jumper with 11 seconds left to give the hosts the lead and eventually the victory.

Valparaiso got the ball to All-Horizon League guard Brandon Wood, but Seth Evans (Seneca, Ill.) forced the guard into a contested shot in the waning seconds, and freshman Alec Brown (Winona, Minn.) corralled the rebound for a Phoenix win.

Perine finished it for the Phoenix, hitting eight of his last 11 shots from the field to finish with 20 points, but Brown gave the Phoenix a lift as the hosts built a 16-point lead in the opening half. The 7-foot-1 freshman had 14 points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots in the opening half, helping Green Bay to a 41-33 halftime lead.

Brown finished with a career-high 22 points on 7-of-14 shooting and hit all eight of his free throws. He added a career-high 12 rebounds and two blocks.

Junior Jarvis Williams (Milwaukee, Wis.) had 14 points, including 10 in the opening half, and senior Rahmon Fletcher (Kansas City, Mo.) added 13 points, five rebounds and five assists to give the Phoenix four players in double figures.

The Phoenix, with their home schedule in the books, will hit the road and play at Youngstown State Thursday at 6:05 p.m. The team will then conclude its regular season schedule Saturday at Cleveland State at 1 p.m.
