North to Alaska, after 20 years away, Phoenix men return to ‘Shootout’

Tag icon ,

Returning to Anchorage 20 years later, the Green Bay men’s basketball team opens the Great Alaska Shootout on Thanksgiving Night against Pepperdine at 8:30 p.m. CT. The game will be cablecast nationally by CBS College Sports Network. (Local radio coverage is via 1440 WNFL AM.) The program previously competed in the Shootout in 1993, going 1-2 with a victory over North Carolina State and close losses against a Glenn Robinson-led Purdue squad and a Wake Forest team featuring Tim Duncan. That Jeff Nordgaard-led Phoenix team went on to win 27 games and come within a few points of reaching the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet Sixteen. See more on this year’s shootout.
