The Green Bay Phoenix and the Wisconsin Badgers will meet in Madison Friday evening for a renewal of their semiannual in-state matchup.
The Phoenix are looking for their first win of the season after letting a double-digit lead slip away in the second half against Indiana State, eventually falling 81-77. The Badgers defeated St. Francis College Brooklyn 81-58 on Tuesday. Both teams will look remarkably different from last year's 82-42 blowout win for the Badgers. The Phoenix only has four players total returning from last year's squad while the Badgers have three new starters from its NCAA Tournament team a year ago. The Phoenix are looking for their first win against the Badgers in 11 tries, last beating them at the Resch Center in 2009.
Tip is set for 7 p.m.
