GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – 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.

To view the official bracket with dates and times click here.

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.

Green Bay will face Georgia Tech in a preseason tournament for the second time in four years, having beaten the Yellow Jackets in 2011 as part of the San Juan Shootout. Both teams were ranked in that game, with the Phoenix checking in at No. 18 and Tech at No. 25.

This year will mark the first time the Phoenix will play in the state of Florida since 2008 when they traveled to Miami to face FIU and Miami.  Green Bay won both games in the Sunshine State that year.

First round matchups:
11 a.m. CT – Green Bay vs. Georgia Tech
1:30 p.m. CT – Arizona State vs. Villanova
5 p.m. CT – Vanderbilt vs. Minnesota
