Berglin, Soulis lead UWGB to Horizon final

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Natalie Berglin scored 21 points, Nicole Soulis added 19 and No. 22 Wisconsin-Green Bay defeated Wisconsin-Milwaukee 84-79 in overtime in a Horizon League tournament semifinal Friday night.

The Phoenix (27-3), who went undefeated in Horizon League play this season, opened overtime on a 7-2 run and never trailed in the extra period in extending their winning streak to 24 games.

They advance to the Horizon League final Sunday against Butler, which knocked off second-seed Illinois-Chicago in the other semifinal, also in overtime.

Jody Crumble had 13 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for the Panthers (15-16), the first triple-double in school history, and Traci Edwards added 23 points and 12 rebounds.

Both teams had chances to win in regulation, but the Panthers turned the ball over with 21.2 seconds left and the Phoenix failed to get a quality shot and had to rely on a desperation heave by Kayla Groh in the final seconds.
