Green Bay slips in latest mid-major polls

After a week that saw Green Bay split a two game Michigan road trip, the Phoenix slipped slightly in both mid-major polls on Monday.

Green Bay fell 69-66 last Thursday night at Oakland before rebounding nicely with a come-from-behind victory at Detroit.

The Phoenix fell one spot to #5 in this week's Mid-Major Top 25. Gonzaga remains #1, followed by Wichita State, Northern Iowa, and Stephen F. Austin. Green Bay's Friday opponent, Valparaiso, ranks #6 in this week's poll. The Phoenix are 2-0 against teams appearing in the poll.

Green Bay also slipped three spots in this week's Mid-Major Madness Power 15, falling from #7 to #10. This week's poll, which includes Conference USA and the Atlantic 10 Conference, remained unchanged at the top. Gonzaga is #1 followed by Wichita State, VCU, Dayton, and Northern Iowa. Horizon League rival Valparaiso checks in at #14 in the poll.

The Phoenix are no longer receiving votes in the AP Top 25. Last week, Green Bay received 3 votes which would have placed them at #37 in the poll.

Green Bay hosts UIC on Tuesday night before a massive showdown on Friday with Valparaiso.
