GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - In the middle of a two-game homestand, head coach Kevin Borseth and the Green Bay women's basketball team (7-2) are hard at work preparing to host rival Wisconsin (7-3) on Sunday at 7 p.m. During the team's recent 10-day break over finals week, ESPN's Graham Hays interviewed Borseth on his return to Green Bay following a five-year stint at Michigan.

Below is an excerpt from the article, which was released on ESPN's website on Dec. 20.

The road Kevin Borseth followed to become the subject of such a call is constantly choked with bumper-to-bumper coaching traffic. Bigger is always better, the grass always greener. Players graduate and move on to the real world. Coaches graduate to the next rung up the ladder. It's how Borseth got to Michigan in the first place. But to borrow from Robert Frost, the road that ultimately made all the difference to him was less well worn.

He chased a dream, but found what he was looking for when he retraced his steps.

"I just didn't enjoy myself where I was at," said Borseth, who returned to Green Bay this season after five seasons at Michigan. "I didn't. And not because it was anything of anybody else's doing. It was just that I didn't enjoy my quality of life. I really didn't. It was very difficult, and I think it weighed on me as a person, it weighed on me as a coach, it weighed on me as a parent. And I think a lot of people could see that.

"I feel it now. I mean, I get up in the morning and just my mind is clear."

The Phoenix will remain at home to play consecutive home games for the first time this season as Wisconsin pays a visit to the Kress Center on Sunday at 7 p.m. Green Bay will look to win its fourth straight against the Badgers, who have won four in a row but are just 1-2 on the road this season.
