Friday night will mark the best chance the Green Bay Phoenix mens basketball team will have to get a road victory this year.  Even knowing that, things will not come easy inside the Klotsche Center on the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee campus.  There are a number of streaks and trends working against Green Bay's favor ahead of tonight's clash between these in-state rivals.  

First, after a loss a couple nights ago to th...

Game Preview: at Valparaiso

Posted by Brian Dickmann on January 20, 2013 at 10:45 PM Comments comments (0)

After a very successful four game home stand, the Green Bay Phoenix head to Indiana Wednesday night to begin a four game road trip against the Valparaiso Crusaders.  In fact, six of the Phoenix last ten games will be on the road, which up to this point hasn't been very kind.  In the Brian Wardle era, Green Bay has won just five Horizon League road games and is 7-32 overall in true road games.  Compare that to an impressive 31-7 record in games played at the Resch Center under W...

Game Preview: vs Marquette

Finally, the Marquette Golden Eagles will be making a trip to the Resch Center in Green Bay to take on the Phoenix.  The two squads have faced off 11 times previously, all of them occurring in the Brew City.  The Golden Eagles hold a 9-2 advantage in the series which dates back to 1982, with Green Bay winning back to back games in the 93/94 and 94/95 seasons.  Following the 96/97 season, the two teams took a 14 year hiatus from the series before signing a new 3 year deal to beg...

Mercifully, the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight for the Green Bay Phoenix and their 4 game western road trip that has them playing 4 games in 5 days.  After struggling out of the gate at home against Chicago State, the Phoenix went out west and things haven't gotten any easier for Brian Wardle and company. 

After winning by 12 on Friday against Southern Utah followed by a soul crushing buzzer beat...

Just for fun: Horizon League Fantasy Draft

Posted by Brian Dickmann on October 29, 2012 at 9:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Recently, Valparaiso beat writer Paul Oren had a BRILLIANT idea of creating a Horizon League fantasy basketball league.  I love this idea, and I'm honored to be a part of it.  Anyway, I ended up with the 2nd pick and was postive I'd be able to make a homer pick and grab Alec Brown, but he ended up going first overall.  If it wasn't apparent before tonight, its pretty obvious that there isn't much after Brown in terms of true centers in this conference.&#...

Pre-season Predictions

Posted by Brian Dickmann on October 8, 2012 at 9:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Finally, the long offseason is drawing to a close.  Soon, the games will be decided on the hardwood, but until then its fun to make some guesses on what the upcoming season will bring.  For Green Bay, expectations haven't been this high in a long time.  In the Horizon League pre-season poll, the Phoenix were predicted to finish 3rd, their highest ranking since 2007. I believe the Phoenix are probably still a year away from being considered league favorites and at-large NCAA tou...

Coming off a tough two game stretch in the state of Indiana, the Green Bay Phoenix return to the great state of Wisconsin on Saturday night to take on the arch rival Milwaukee Panthers at the US Cellular Arena.  Milwaukee, (10-6, 3-1 Horizon League) is coming off a disappointing loss Tuesday night on the road at Western Michigan.  The Panthers finished up a stretch of three road games in six days in which they knocked off Valparaiso and then had their 12 game Horizon League winning ...
