Julie Wojta had career highs of 30 points and 20 rebounds as No. 9 Wisconsin Green Bay bounced back from its first loss of the season and beat Wright State 64-59 on Saturday.

Wojta, a senior, fell two steals short of getting her first career triple-double. Megan Lukan added 12 points for the Phoenix (21-1, 11-1 Horizon League). Green Bay was coming off a 70-58 loss to Detroit on Thursday night.

The Phoenix have not lost consecutive games since Jan. 21-23, 2010. Green Bay has won 46 of its last 48 games, dating back to December 2010. Its other loss came to Baylor, currently No. 1, in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament last season.

Molly Fox had 16 points to lead the Raiders (16-9, 9-4), who began the day tied for second with Detroit in the conference. Kim Demmings and Kayla Lamotte added 11 points each and KC Elkins had 10.

Wojta had 17 points in the first half, staking the Phoenix to a 34-23 lead before Wright State scored the final six points of the half.
