GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Legendary Green Bay men's basketball coach Dick Bennett was back on campus recently, and the Phoenix Hall of Famer took the time to sit down for an interview with current head coach Brian Wardle in the old Phoenix Sports Center.

Matt Menzl hosted the interview, and the two coaches discussed a variety of topics, including Bennett's recent visit with the men's and women's basketball staffs, history of the program, the task of building a program and creating an identity as well as the three-game series with Virginia beginning in 2011-12.

Virginia is coached by Dick Bennett's son, Tony, who is the all-time leading scorer for the Phoenix. The series begins with Green Bay's trip to Charlottesville on Nov. 25. Green Bay will play at Virginia again in 2012-13 before Tony and his Virginia team visits the Resch Center in 2013-14.

Green Bay opens its 2011-12 season on Friday, Nov. 11 against University of Mary at 7 p.m. at the Resch Center. The Phoenix will also host one exhibition, welcoming Lawrence to the Kress Events Center on Nov. 4 at 7 p.m.

The men's and women's basketball squads will host Green Bay Basketball Mania on Friday night at 9 p.m. at the Kress Center. The season kickoff celebration is free and open to the public.
