Greg Mays scored a career-high 24 points, and Keifer Sykes added 21 as Wisconsin-Green Bay pulled out a 75-72 win over Virginia on Saturday.
Sykes made two free throws for the Phoenix (5-2) with 8.7 seconds left after Joe Harris missed a 3-pointer for Virginia. The Cavaliers (7-3) had a final chance to tie the score, but Justin Anderson missed a 3-point shot as the buzzer sounded.
Virginia fought back from a 13-point deficit early in the second half, tying the score at 69 on a 3-pointer from Malcolm Brogdon with 1:51 left. Brogdon led the Cavaliers with 17 points. Harris and Anthony Gill each added 12 points.
The loss is the second straight for Virginia this week and spoiled the Green Bay homecoming for Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett. Bennett, in his fifth season at Virginia, was a star player in college at Green Bay from 1988-92.
