GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Phoenix fans are invited to support former Green Bay women's basketball standout Julie Wojta (Francis Creek, Wis.) in her WNBA debut with the Minnesota Lynx Tuesday, May 15. The defending WNBA champions will host the Chicago Sky at 12:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Sports Pavilion in a preseason game which Wojta is assured to play.

The Fast Break Club has organized a 56-passenger bus for fans to attend the game. Cost for bus transportation is $35 per person and will depart from the Baird Foundation parking lot at 6:30 a.m. May 15, returning after the game.

Fans will be responsible for ordering their own tickets through the Lynx organization by contacting Carly Knox at (612) 673-8408 or knox@lynxbasketball.com. Tickets start as low as $15 and can also be purchased through the order form at the top of the page.

To reserve your seat on the bus, please contact Pat Duescher by May 10th at (920) 845-2448 or pattydish@aol.com. The Lynx preseason games have a history of selling out, so be sure to reserve your spot as soon as possible.

Wojta was selected by the Lynx as the 18th overall pick in the WNBA Draft held April 16 in Bristol, Conn. The All-American is the first player in the 39-year history of the Green Bay women's basketball program to be drafted in the WNBA and will be the third to suit up for a WNBA team.
