The UW Green Bay Women’s Basketball Team fell to 4th seeded Iowa State Tuesday night in the second round of the Women’s NCAA Tournament 60-56. The 12th seeded Phoenix were looking for the schools first ever trip to the Sweet 16.
Kayla Tetschlag was the games top scorer with a career best 29-point performance. That total also tied the UW Green Bay tournament mark for most points in a game. Tetschlag was also given the distinction of the “player of the game” on the ESPN2 telecast.
Green Bay had the ball with 8 seconds left trailing 57-56 but turned it over. After a pair of Iowa State free throws made it 59-56, Green Bay’s inbound pass was picked off at half-court sealing the win for the Cyclones.
The Phoenix end the season with a 28-5 record. Iowa State moves on to play top seeded Connecticut.
