GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Academic success is nothing new for the Green Bay women's basketball program. In 2011-12, the Phoenix women finished the season ranked No. 1 in the WBCA's Academic Top-25 for the second time in school history, earning an NCAA-best 3.616 team GPA. The team helped contribute to the athletic department's best fall grade-point average in school history last semester, posting a team GPA of 3.26 as UW-Green Bay student-athletes combined for a 3.24. It marked the impressive 26th straight semester that Green Bay Athletics has achieved a 3.0 or higher, and the 32nd in a row for women's basketball.

While much of the credit for the team's academic success goes to the student-athletes, the Phoenix players realize the importance of people such as tutor/mentor Darrell Patterson, academic coordinator Mike Kline, UW-Green Bay's professors and all those around campus who support Green Bay Athletics.

Check out the video above for more on Green Bay women's basketball's success in the classroom, and those who make it possible.
