For as much as the Phoenix have been able to put up points in a hurry, their opponents have also found it a breeze to fight fire with fire just the same. They’ve allowed an average of 80.5 points to their opposition this season, which too close for comfort with their own offensive output. Green Bay lives and dies with its run-and-gun style of play, so once those turnovers don’t fall in the team’s favor, expect its competition to seize the momentum with more sound ball movement and efficient shot selection.
It has also been two decades since the school made it to the Big Dance, making the Phoenix’s tourney bid one that shouldn’t be taken all too seriously compared to the other perennial March Madness contenders.

Unfortunately, Green Bay succumbs to the one-and-done blues with a lackluster showing in the first round of the tournament.
