VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) Sultan Muhammad hit a 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds remaining as Green Bay defeated Illinois-Chicago 64-63 in the quarterfinals of the Horizon League tournament on Friday night.
Two free throws from Gary Talton capped an 11-3 run that gave Illinois-Chicago a 63-61 lead with 7 seconds left. But Keifer Sykes took the ball across the mid-court line and kicked it to Muhammad on the right wing, where he nailed a 24-footer for the game-winner.
Alec Brown scored 17 points for the fourth-seeded Phoenix (18-14), who will face top-seeded Valparaiso Saturday in the semifinals. Sykes added 12 points and Muhammad had 10.
