GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Khalil Small scored 27 points with seven rebounds and Green Bay beat Youngstown State 85-67 on Saturday.
Small was just 2 of 8 from the arc but 8 of 13 otherwise and reached 20 points for the ninth time this season. He also had four assists and three steals. The senior guard was three points shy of his career high of 30 that came against Cleveland State on Jan. 6.
