UW Green Bay guard Kiefer Sykes is picking up right where he left off. Sykes earned the first Horizon League player of the week award this season after leading the Phoenix over Chicago State in their opener on Saturday with 31 points, a career high. He also broke the school record by making 17 free throws in the game. Sykes' previous career best was 27 in the regular season finale a year ago against UIC when he picked up the player of the week award in the final week of the season. Green Bay travels to Reno, Nevada this weekend to take part in the World Vision Classic Tournament, meeting Southern Utah on Friday night.
