“Everybody has got to be ready at any given moment, especially when we play the back-to-backs in the Horizon League. You don’t want to run your top five, seven guys into the ground playing back-to-backs. It’s fair game for everyone,” said UWGB Men’s Basketball coach Will Ryan.

No fans will be permitted at University of Wisconsin-Green Bay basketball games in November and December because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but that won’t stop games from being played.
The Horizon League announced its 2020-21 conference schedules Wednesday, with each team set to play 20 league games.
The Horizon League announced its 2020-21 men’s and women’s basketball conference schedules this week and the Green Bay women’s team tips off the conference season with two games against UW-Milwaukee on Dec. 12 and 13. The men’s league season will tip off Dec. 19 and 20, when Green Bay hosts the Panthers before heading to Wright State the following weekend. The uncharacteristic back-to-back scheduling is to limit exposure to COVID-19. The Phoenix will have to play without fans, at least through 2020.
When former Bay Port athletic director Otis Chambers hired Kati Coleman as the varsity girls basketball coach in 2014, he took a chance on her despite a resume that featured virtually no coaching experience. “(Bay Port principal Mike) Frieder and Otis took a chance on me,” said Coleman, who also had a standout playing career at Ashwaubenon and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

Keifer Sykes plays professional basketball in Turkey, not Los Angeles or New York. He hasn’t yet made his NBA dream fit inside his 6-foot frame. And life off the court has been pock-marked with losses and tragedies tied to the gun violence that has riddled the streets of Chicago for a century. The former UW-Green Bay star had his successes and heartbreaks documented in the award-winning 2018 documentary “Chi-Town.” Audiences saw Sykes become the first college graduate in his family’s history. They watched as he led Green Bay to a Horizon League Championship for the first time in more than a decade.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC 26) — Taking over a new program is difficult. For new UWGB head coach Will Ryan, taking over in the middle of a global pandemic is even harder.”We’re doing the best we can,” Ryan, the son of former Badgers coach Bo Ryan, said Wednesday in an exclusive interview with NBC 26. “I’m having a blast with these guys. It is a little difficult trying to get to know them face to face or mask to mask.”The masks, along with regular COVID-19 testing, are just a few of the aspects UWGB has put in place to help make sure its men’s basketball team is following proper protocols. But they’re not exactly player friendly.”I can’t wait until the day we can take these off and it is difficult to do through the masks but we’re working through it,” Ryan said.
