MADISON - State Senator Dave Hansen (D-Green Bay) will be introducing a senate resolution honoring the accomplishments of the UWGB Women’s basketball team. By defeating Detroit Mercy 64-52 in the championship game of the Horizon League Championship the Phoenix captured their 15th tournament championship in the last 20 seasons and another trip to the NCAA tournament.

dave-hansen-gb“Enough cannot be said about the UWGB women’s program. They are one of the best programs in the country year in and year out and a great source of for our university, our community and our state,” said Hansen who is a UWGB graduate.

UW-Green Bay is one of only three Division I programs that has had a winning record every year since 1981 and by securing their 40th-consecutive winning season this year they now trail only Tennessee (43) for the longest active streak in the nation.

“This is a very exceptional group of young athletes who are well-coached and who have shown us yet again the kind of success that comes from hard work, discipline and team effort. There is an expectation of greatness at the start of every season and they lived up to that and more.”

The Phoenix will enter the 2017 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament as a No. 8 seed in the Lexington Region and will face the No. 9-seed Purdue in the First Round in Notre Dame, Indiana.
