No. 11 Butler Falls to Wisconsin-Green Bay, 75-66
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Ryan Tillema scored 21 points and Wisconsin-Green Bay was almost perfect from the free-throw line in a 75-66 upset of No. 11 Butler on Monday.
Tillema scored 18 of his points in the second half for Green Bay (18-6, 10-2 Horizon League), which shot 32-for-35 from the free-throw line and didn't miss from the line until the final 9 minutes of the game.
Gordon Hayward had 22 points for Butler (19-2, 10-1), whose players had to watch as Green Bay students stormed the court after the final horn.
It's another surprising step for Green Bay, which has surged to a surprising second place in the Horizon League after opening up non-conference play with back-to-back losses.
