GREEN BAY, Wis. ( – Playing in one of this year’s premier preseason tournaments, the Green Bay women’s basketball team will be one of the first teams to take the court after the 2014 Gulf Coast Showcase bracket was officially released on Friday.

The field is loaded with strong women’s basketball programs from across the country, including undefeated and 2014 National Champion Connecticut. The Phoenix will play Georgia Tech in the opening game of the tournament, which will be followed by Arizona State against Villanova. The other half of the bracket features Vanderbilt versus Minnesota and UConn versus College of Charleston.

The three-day event will be played in Germain Arena, located in Fort Meyers, Fla., and will run Nov. 28-30. The Phoenix will play the first game of this year’s tournament against the Yellow Jackets at 11 a.m. CT on Friday, Nov. 28. Each team will play a total of three games in a bracket format.
