We’re dancing again: Phoenix women capture 16th tournament title, advance to NCAA Tournament
The 22nd-ranked Green Bay women’s basketball team captured yet another Horizon League Tournament Championship on Tuesday afternoon with a 62-44 victory over Wright State at Little Caesars Arena. It’s the 16th tournament title for the illustrious Phoenix program in the past 21 seasons, and its fourth-straight overall, punching a ticket to its 18th NCAA Tournament in the process. The Phoenix (29-3) is now 16-4 all-time in the tournament’s biggest game, and continued its dominance of Wright State as well, winning its 62nd game in the 66 all-time meetings. Senior Allie LeClaire was named the Tournament MVP, pouring in a game-high 24 points against the Raiders (23-10).
