Series: The Phoenix leads 37-27 and split the season series last season with UWGB, beating Cleveland State at home 71-67 on Feb. 21.

UWGB update: The Phoenix won its third consecutive game Thursday, 67-58 over Youngstown State. ? With center Alec Brown being held scoreless for the first 34 minutes, freshman Jordan Fouse led the Phoenix with 12 points and nine rebounds while the bench contributed 31 points, a season-high against a Division I opponent this season. ? Junior guard Kam Cerroni, who scored all nine of his points against the Penguins in the second half, made 10-of-16 3-pointers in the Phoenix's two meetings with the Vikings last season. Since Dec. 12, Cerroni is shooting 45.2 percent from 3-point distance (14 of 31). ? During its six-game home winning streak, the Phoenix has held opponents to 49.2 points per game and 33.2 percent from the field. ? In UWGB's win over Youngstown, freshman guard Carrington Love debuted a nice hesitation post move in which he lulled his defender until spinning around him to his right for the easy layup. "I did it a lot in high school and (Coach) Wardle told me it wouldn't work at this level, so they call it the 'Milwaukee Move,' so I try it every now and again to see if it works," said Love, a Milwaukee Pius XI alumnus. "(Tried it) just three times. The first two it didn't work. The very first game against St. Norbert and Coach said don't do it again. I didn't remember and did it again."

CSU update: The Vikings are coming off a 69-57 loss to UW-Milwaukee (5-13, 1-3) on Thursday, which was only the Panthers' third win over a Division I opponent this season and ended a seven-game losing streak against DI schools. ? Cleveland State is 9-23 all-time in Green Bay and is 1-8 on the road this season. ? Freshman guard Bryn Forbes is leading Cleveland State in scoring with 11.3 points per game and was honored as the Horizon League newcomer of week after averaging 16.7 points and 5.7 rebounds in that three-game stretch. ? The Vikings' 12-man roster combines for just 11 years of college experience, tying Cal State Northridge and Dartmouth as the youngest DI schools in the country. ? Guard Charlie Lee is a Milwaukee native and only Wisconsin native on the Vikings' roster.
