GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Green Bay Athletics will host the Phoenix Men’s Basketball Tip-Off Party on Saturday, Oct. 12 at the Resch Center from noon-3 p.m. Head coach Brian Wardle and the Phoenix will welcome season ticket holders, ticket package purchasers and launch single-game ticket sales for Green Bay’s 2013-14 premier home games against Wisconsin (Nov. 16) and Virginia (Dec. 7).

Leading up to the event, GreenBayPhoenix.com will be counting down the great reasons to attend the Tip-Off Party:

GUARANTEE THE BEST SEATS FOR WISCONSIN AND VIRGINIA
The Tip-Off Party will be the first chance that the general public has to purchase tickets for the Wisconsin and Virginia games until Monday, Oct. 14, and buying your tickets on Oct. 12 is the only way to guarantee the best seats in the Resch Center for those premier contests.

Be there on Saturday, Nov. 16, when Green Bay will host Wisconsin at the Resch Center for the third time since the arena opened in 2002. The Phoenix won the last meeting in the Resch, defeating Wisconsin 88-84 in overtime on Dec. 9, 2009. Head coach Bo Ryan’s Badgers went 23-12 in 2012-13 and return 6-foot-1 senior Ben Brust, who averaged 11.1 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. Sophomore standout Sam Decker also returns for Wisconsin after averaging 9.6 points per game as a freshman.

A part of Phoenix basketball history returns to Green Bay on Saturday, Dec. 7, when the program’s all-time leading scorer Tony Bennett returns as the head coach of Virginia. Bennett scored 2,285 points in his Phoenix career from 1988-92, but he will return on the sidelines guiding one of the top teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Cavaliers return three starters from a 23-win team a season ago. Senior Joe Harris, who averaged 16.6 points per game as a junior, is one of the top players in the ACC.
