GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay men's and women's basketball programs welcomed members of the media to the Kress Events Center on Tuesday afternoon for the annual basketball media day. Head coaches Kevin Borseth and Brian Wardle addressed the media and online viewers on the state of their respective programs with practice underway and the 2012-13 season fast approaching.

Watch the press conferences with Borseth and Wardle below.

Women's basketball seniors Lydia Bauer (Lake Zurich, Ill.), Sarah Eichler (Grafton, Wis.) and Adrian Ritchie (De Pere, Wis.) represented the women's team while junior Alec Brown (Winona, Minn.) and sophomore Keifer Sykes (Chicago, Ill.) attended the event from the men's basketball team.
