GREEN BAY, Wis. ( – One year after playing this Thanksgiving Week at the Great Alaska Shootout in Anchorage, Alaska, the Green Bay men’s basketball team has been invited to appear in a Thanksgiving Week tourney again next season. Green Bay will head in a different direction in 2014-15, appearing in the 2014 Gulf Coast Showcase in Naples, Fla., from Nov. 24-26, 2014.

The second annual Gulf Coast Showcase will have an eight-team field made up of some of the best mid-major programs in the country. The field will include: East Carolina (American Athletic Conference), Evansville (Missouri Valley), Florida Gulf Coast (Atlantic Sun), High Point (Big South), Green Bay (Horizon League), San Francisco (West Coast), Fresno State (Mountain West), UNC Wilmington (Colonial). The first-round pairings and full bracket will be released at a later date.

“We are thrilled to have secured another invitation to a competitive non-conference tournament,” Green Bay head coach Brian Wardle said. “The Gulf Coast Showcase made a commitment to compiling a great field of mid-major programs, and competing in the event will provide our team three early-season tests against strong competition in a tournament atmosphere.”
