The Wright State women's basketball team found the offense hard to come by Saturday afternoon, scoring 15 points in the first half in dropping a 71-44 decision at Green Bay.

KC Elkins opened the scoring with a jumper, but that turned out to be the only lead of the day for the Raiders as Green Bay scored the next eight points and 19 of 24 to go up 19-7 with 12:49 remaining in the first half.  The Phoenix gradually extended its advantage from there and took a 36-15 halftime lead.

Green Bay shot 43 percent for the game, including eight of 17 from three-point range, while WSU shot 33 percent, 28 percent in the first half.

Elkins led the Raiders with 18 points while Ivory James added 12 off the bench. 

Kim Demmings was held to just three points on the day, marking the first time in 20 career Horizon League games that the sophomore guard did not score in double figures.  It's just the fifth time in 49 career games overall that Demmings did not reach double figures and the first since scoring eight against Southeast Missouri on December 19, 2011, a string of 37 games.

Sarah Eichler paced Green Bay (12-2, 2-0 Horizon) with 24 points while Breannah Ranger posted a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds off the bench.  Adrian Ritchie chipped in 10.

Wright State (7-8, 1-1 Horizon) hosts Detroit Wednesday at 7:00.
