Detroit shocks unbeaten Green Bay

Feb 10, 2012 - 4:51 AM Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Green Bay hadn't lost since a setback last February to Detroit.

On Thursday night, history repeated itself.

Shareta Brown scored 24 points and Senee Shearer added 23, as the Detroit Titans ended No. 9 Green Bay's 40-game regular season winning streak with a 70-58 victory.

The Titans (13-11, 9-3 Horizon) dominated the backboards, outrebounding Green Bay, 47-32 in the victory.

The Phoenix (20-1, 10-1) had won 36 straight in the conference and 40 in a row overall since the setback on February 4, 2010. Julie Wojta scored 16 points with nine rebounds and Hannah Quilling added 13 points and five assists in the loss.

Detroit rattled off 17 straight points at one stage in the first half to claim a 22-8 lead. The Phoenix missed 12 straight shots during the stretch, and six players scored for the Titans with Brown and Jones scoring four points apiece.

Green Bay ended the first half with a 10-4 scoring stretch to pull within 29-24, a small deficit considering a season-worst 22.6 percent shooting percentage.

Detroit quickly took a double-digit lead at 37-26 on Brown's layup, but Green Bay scored the next eight capped by Adrian Ritchie's layup. Ritchie joined Megan Lukan in double figures with 11 points apiece.

Lukan's trey squared the contest at 47-47, and the Phoenix went ahead on Ritchie's three moments later. Green Bay only scored eight points over the final eight-plus minutes.

Detroit took the lead for good on Brown's two free throws with 5:46 to play. Green Bay cut it to one point once more, but the margin quickly grew to seven at 60-53, and the Titans made the margin hold up.
