GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Rodrick Caldwell and Justin Turner each scored 21 points and Bowling Green beat Green Bay 81-78 in overtime Thursday night.

Kameron Hankerson’s layup with 9:03 left put Green Bay ahead, 53-45, but the Phoenix went scoreless for more than six minutes while the Falcons took the lead with a 12-0 run with Turner scoring seven.

Wiggins finished with 16 boards and 13 points.

Khalil Small led Green Bay (5-7) with 19 points, Sandy Cohen III added 16, Hankerson 13 and PJ Pipes 11.
