GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – The Green Bay men’s basketball team is ranked No. 21 in the 2013-14 CollegeInsider.com Preseason Mid-Major Poll released on Monday afternoon. Head coach Brian Wardle’s squad, which was chosen last week as the preseason favorite in the Horizon League.

The Mid-Major Poll is made up of teams from the following conferences: America East, Atlantic Sun, Big Sky, Big South, Big West, Colonial, Great West, Horizon, Independents, Ivy, Metro Atlantic, Mid-American, Mid-Eastern, Missouri Valley, Northeast, Ohio Valley, Patriot, Southern, Southland, Southwestern, Summit, Sun Belt, WAC, West Coast.  

Wichita State received 24 first-place votes and sits atop the poll at No. 1 while Gonzaga claimed the other seven votes at No. 2. The poll also consists of three other teams in the field at the Great Alaska Shootout from Nov. 28-30 (No. 5 Indiana State, No. 9 Denver and No. 12 Harvard).

Green Bay is the lone Horizon League team in the mid-major poll, but six of Green Bay’s league opponents received at least one vote.

Wardle returns four players from a team which finished 18-16 overall and 10-6 in Horizon League play a season ago. Two Preseason All-Horizon League First-Team selections – senior Alec Brown (Winona, Minn.) and junior Keifer Sykes (Chicago, Ill.) – headline the returners and enter the season with a combined 2,092 career points. The duo performed well in Saturday’s Green & White Scrimmage, with the 5-foot-11 Sykes winning the slam dunk contest and the 7-foot-1 Brown claiming the three-point contest.

Green Bay hosts Viterbo for an exhibition game on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 1 p.m. The Phoenix officially opens its 2013-14 season from Nov. 8-10 at the HBCU Tip-Off Classic in Atlanta, playing Arkanasas-Pine Bluff on Nov. 8 and Texas Southern on Nov. 10. Wisconsin visits the Resch Center for Green Bay’s home opener on Saturday, Nov. 16.
