Justin Mitchell recorded his first career triple-double and just the third in Wright State history Saturday night to lead the Raiders to an 88-79 victory against Green Bay at the Nutter Center.

In addition to scoring 14 points and grabbing 11 rebounds, Mitchell had a career-high 10 assists for the program’s first triple-double since Vernard Hollins (21 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists) on Jan. 14, 2004.

Mitchell was 5 of 5 from the floor and 4 of 4 from the free throw line.

Mark Alstork led WSU with 20 points, while Steven Davis added 17 and Grant Benzinger had 15 as the Raiders (17-9, 8-5 Horizon League) won for the sixth time in eight games.

The Phoenix (15-11, 8-5 Horizon League) lost their second game in a row to fall into third place, a half game behind Oakland and a half game ahead of WSU and Northern Kentucky.
