The Green Bay Phoenix women’s basketball team got a double-dose of tough luck when the NCAA women’s tournament bracket was announced last night.
The Phoenix (28-4) was matched up against Princeton (30-0) in the Spokane Regional. The teams will tip at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Xfinity Center in College Park, Maryland. The winner will likely face top-seeded Maryland in round 2. Maryland opens up against No. 16 seed New Mexico State.
Princeton drew the 8-seed, after becoming the 15th team to enter the NCAA Tournament unbeaten.
Green Bay takes an 11 game winning streak into Saturday’s game, after capturing their 13th Horizon League Tournament title. The Phoenix will be making their 15th appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
