GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Megan Lukan scored 19 points, Adrian Ritchie had 17 and No. 20 Green Bay won its 20th straight game by defeating Loyola of Chicago 63-37 Thursday night.

The Phoenix (24-2, 14-0 Horizon), who edged Loyola 65-62 in their previous meeting on Feb. 7, made sure this one wouldn't be close. Green Bay scored 11 straight points in the early going to take a 16-6 lead, upped that advantage to 27-14 at halftime and opened the second half with a 17-3 run to go on top 44-17.

Loyola (14-14, 9-6) had won seven straight games and climbed into third place in the Horizon League since the earlier loss to Green Bay -- its longest streak in league play since 1988-89. But the Ramblers shot just 29 percent on Thursday to fall to 1-28 all-time against ranked teams.

Simone Law led Loyola with nine points and nine rebounds.
