The dynasty grows in Green Bay. No, not the Packers this time - though they have won 13 championships in their history.

The Phoenix used its trademark of lockdown defense to dismantle Wright State's attack, only allowing eight first-quarter points and having long stretches holding Wright State to nothing from the field.
