Green Bay Closes Out Road Trip with 71-55 Win at Chattanooga
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) --- Mehryn Kraker led all scorers for the second-straight game this afternoon in Chattanooga, Tenn., at the McKenzie Arena, as the guard scored 20 points on 8-of-12 shooting in 38 minutes to help lead Green Bay (4-1) over the Chattanooga Mocs (3-4), 71-55.
The Phoenix came out on fire in the first quarter against the Mocs, finishing 11-of-12 (91.7%) and holding Chattanooga to just 2-of-10 to build its way to a 27-6 lead.
The Mocs seemed to gain a bit more traction offensively after the opening quarter of play but was never able to fully disrupt Green Bay’s flow, as the Phoenix dominated its way to a 71-55 victory to close out the Tennessee road trip.
Sam Terry was a major contributor for the Phoenix in the victory, as the senior scored a season-high 14 points and shot 6-for-8 from the field in 17 minutes.
The Phoenix finished the game with a season-high 59.2% (29-49) field-goal percentage and shot 6-of-11 (54.5%) from beyond the arc.
The Phoenix will now return home before heading out on the road again to take on Bradley in Peoria, Ill., at the Renaissance Coliseum on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 7 p.m.
