GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – While Phoenix fans and men’s basketball players alike will have to wait until Nov. 8 to officially start the 2013-14 season, both will have a chance to practice on Saturday when head coach Brian Wardle hosts the Green and White Scrimmage at 7 p.m. at the Kress Events Center. The event, which will also include a slam dunk contest and three-point competition, features free admission for all in attendance. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

To start off the night, the Phoenix players will hit the floor for an intrasquad scrimmage, playing two 8-minute halves. The scrimmage will allow Green Bay fans to see the entire team in action, including the squad’s newcomers.

After the scrimmage, five players will compete in a slam dunk contest, with two players advancing to the finals. The three-point competition is slated to include 7-foot-1 senior Alec Brown (Winona, Minn.) and sophomore guard Carrington Love (Milwaukee, Wis.).

The Green and White Scrimmage will mark the first time that UW-Green Bay students will be able to pick up tickets to Green Bay’s home opener against Wisconsin on Saturday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. Students can pick up their ticket beginning at 6:30 p.m. with a valid UW-Green Bay ID. The students will also be treated to free pizza during the event.

Green Bay opened practice on Sept. 27 and has been working hard to prepare for the team’s regular season opener on Friday, Nov. 8 against Arkansas-Pine Bluff in the HBCU Tip-Off Championship in Atlanta, Ga. The Phoenix will host Viterbo at the Resch Center on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 1 p.m. in its lone exhibition contest of the season. To check out the team’s full schedule, click here.
