Welcome back Phoenix: ETA is 11:45 a.m.
Fans and friends who want to greet, cheer and congratulate the UW-Green Bay women’s basketball team on its return from the NCAA Tournament might be interested to know the team is scheduled to return to the Kress Events Center at about 11:45 a.m. today (Tuesday, March 20). A police escort is planned for their bus ride from the airport.
For those of you who missed the late show Monday, the women faced a 17-point halftime deficit but came roaring back to take a brief lead. Unfortunately, they couldn’t hang on, and ultimately lost 65-62 to the No. 2 seed Kentucky Wildcats. But with a 31-2 record and a No. 10 national ranking, the Horizon League champs have plenty to celebrate. Help welcome them back at about 11:45 today — we’ll keep you posted if the time changes — near the turf gym entrance of the Kress (east side of the building, around the back).
