GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Sophomore Keifer Sykes (Chicago, Ill.) had one of the most memorable of his young Phoenix career on the biggest stage, matching his career-high with 31 points Saturday night in the Horizon League semifinal at Valparaiso. Sykes' heroics were spoiled by a Crusader buzzer-beater, but the Phoenix point guard was named to the Horizon League All-Tournament Team on Tuesday night after Valpo defeated Wright State 62-54 in the championship game.

In Green Bay's three tournament games, including wins over Milwaukee and UIC, Sykes averaged 19.7 points, 5.3 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game. The first Green Bay player to be named to the All-Horizon League tournament team since Ryan Evanochko in 2006, Sykes made 6-of-11 three-pointers and 13-of-15 free throws.

Sykes, a First-Team All-Horizon League selection this season, scored 21 of his 31 after halftime in Saturday's 70-69 loss. The point guard made 11-of-20 shots from the field and 4-of-6 from long range while adding six assists, five rebounds and two steals.

In 33 games this season, Sykes is averaging 15.8 points and 4.3 assists per game. The sophomore has reached double figures 30 times and posted 20 or more points in eight games.
