    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Ryan Evanochko scored 20 of his game-high 24 points in the second half as Wisconsin-Green Bay overcame a surprising second-half deficit to defeat Michigan Tech 62-50 in the second day of the Oneida Casino Holiday Classic.

    The NCAA Division 2 Huskies, who were supposed to be the easiest of the tournament's three opponents for the Phoenix, gave Green Bay all it could handle.

    Michigan Tech led by as many as six points in the second half and wouldn't go away until a 15-4 run by the Phoenix to close out the game.

    A 14-0 second-half run by the Phoenix (7-6) turned a 36-30 deficit into a 44-36 lead, but Michigan Tech clawed its way back in to the game.

    The Huskies (7-6) got to within 49-48 on a Robby Springborn steal and layup with 4:28 left, but that was as close as they would come to reclaiming the lead.

    Michigan Tech was led by Tim Strom's 16 points and six rebounds. Springborn, who began his career as a walk-on at Green Bay before transferring, scored 10 points and Josh Mikela added 11.

    Terry Evans had 15 points and nine rebounds and Mike Schachtner chipped in 10 points for the Phoenix, who are 10-0 in their holiday tournament under coach Tod Kowalczyk.

    The Phoenix will finish out its three-day, four-game round robin tournament against Bowling Green on Saturday. Both the Phoenix and Falcons are 2-0 in the tournament.

    Michigan Tech takes on Jacksonville State in its tournament finale.
