The defense was on full display for the Green Bay women’s basketball team on Saturday afternoon, as it shut down visiting Chattanooga 60-30 at the Kress Center in the regular season-opener. The Phoenix (1-0), which ranked second in the NCAA last year in scoring defense by allowing only 51.7 PPG, held the Mocs (0-1) to just 26.7 percent (12-for-45) shooting and to single digits in three of the four quarters. The 30 points Green Bay allowed ties Chattanooga’s program-record for fewest points scored in a game. Green Bay has now won 11-straight season openers and its last 18 home-openers, a streak that dates back to 2000-01. The team turns its attention to in-state rival Wisconsin on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. The Phoenix will visit the Badgers following a 54-53 nail-biting loss last year in Green Bay.
