DETROIT (AP) - Emily Vogelpohl scored eight of her 14 points in the fourth quarter to help Wright State beat Green Bay 55-52 on Tuesday in the Horizon League tournament championship game.

The Raiders, who have eight won games in a row, advance to their second NCAA Tournament and snap Green Bay's streaks of four consecutive tournament titles and 13 straight wins in the Horizon League tourney.

Michal Miller made with a layup, Symone Simmons hit a 3-pointer and Miller added a jumper before Vogelpohl's 3 as the shot clock expired capped a 10-0 run and made it 47-38 with 6:52 remaining. The Phoenix responded with an 11-2 run to tie it a 49-all about five minutes later but Vogelpohl hit a jumper and then made two free throws to give Wright State a four-point lead with 22 seconds left. After Laken James made a 3-pointer to trim Green Bay's deficit to 53-52 with 18 seconds left, Miller and Vogelpohl each hit 1 of 2 from the free-throw line to cap the scoring.

Brodhead graduate Carly Mohns finished the game with nine points and six rebounds for the Phoenix, who are expected to get a bid into the WNIT.

Miller added 13 points, Simmons had eight points and 14 rebounds and Tyler Frierson added six points with 13 boards for Wright State (27-6).

Mackenzie Wolf led Green Bay with 10 points while James added eight points, five rebounds and eight assists.

Wright State outrebounded the Phoenix 46-28, including 14-3 on the offensive glass which led to a 13-3 advantage in second-chance points.
