Backed by thousands of screaming fans, Phoenix women control destiny

Plagued by injuries earlier this season, the Green Bay women’s basketball team is finally putting it all together. The Phoenix beat Cleveland State in a rare mid-week day game, Feb. 27, 2020, to accommodate nearly 2,000 screaming local school children and another 1,500 fans, at one of arguably the loudest victories in Phoenix history. On Saturday, in front of a jam-packed Krash the Kress and Homecoming 22020 crowd, UW-Green Bay stormed to a 20-point victory over Youngstown State to secure the second seed in the Horizon League Conference Tournament in Indianapolis.

The team has won six straight and 10 of its last 12 games, while improving to 13-5 in the Horizon League. With the victories, Green Bay punched its ticket to the Horizon League Tournament semifinals and will wait until Monday, March 9 to take the floor at the Indiana Farmer’s Coliseum, Indianapolis.
