Back in November I was assigned to cover the UWGB vs Wisconsin men’s college basketball game here at the Resch Center in Green Bay. This game has become a regular pre-season match up for the past few years, and has historically always been a close game between the two schools. This years game was no exception. The lead changed multiple times during the game which ultimately lead to the Badgers wining by only a margin of three points. UWGB’s Keifer Sykes had an opportunity to tie the game up in the last second but unfortunately the shot he put up didn’t go in. This matchup is always a great game to cover. Not only is there a good deal of action, but the atmosphere is electric. This year the game was a sell out, packing the Resch Center with the biggest crowd I have ever seen at a UWGB mens game. Since this game the Phoenix have been on a roll and are currently in first place in the Horizon League conference. As for the Badgers, they have fallen from third in the AP top 25 pole to currently not even being ranked in the pole. Still, there is a lot of basketball left to play this season and things can change quickly in only a matter of a few games. Here are my favorite shots from the game. Thanks for looking.
P.S. I also shot a cool time lapse of the game for UWGB. You can find it at their web site by clicking the link below.
