Green Bay data: The Phoenix of the Horizon League beat Wisconsin Lutheran Tuesday, 110-54, behind a school-record 26 steals and seven dunks. But when confronted with Division I opposition Friday, things didn’t go nearly as well. Green Bay lost 78-74 at home to Indiana State, and had just three steals. They made just 7 of 31 three-pointers. ... Their starting five for the first two games featured four juniors and a senior between 6-foot-4 and 6-9, two of them junior college transfers and two of them transfers from Marquette and San Jose State. ... Linc Darner is in his fourth season as the Phoenix’s coach. They were 13-20 last season, their first losing season in seven years. They are 55-48 under Darner with one NCAA tourney appearance. ... The Green Bay Packers plays the Miami Dolphins at Lambeau Field this afternoon, so the city of Green Bay probably won’t be focused on this game.

It’s been designated Military Appreciation Day at the game. Members of the UI’s ROTC will rappel from the catwalk and deliver the ceremonial game ball. ... Hawkeye sophomore Riley Till is averaging one blocked shot per minute played. ... Jordan Bohannon has made his last five free throws and is 29 from tying Chris Street’s school-record for consecutive free throws made. ... Iowa’s next game will be against No. 16 Oregon Thursday in the 2K Classic at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
