Sweet: Top 10 Women’s Basketball

The amazing UW-Green Bay women’s basketball program had its two greatest seasons earlier this decade. In March 2011, the Phoenix drove all the way to the Sweet 16.  (That’s star forward Julie Wojta, above, driving against 6-8 Brittney Griner, the national player of the year. The Phoenix stayed close for a half before falling to No. 3 Baylor on the Bears’ home floor.) The following season, the Green Bay women finished 31-2 and ranked No. 10 in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll.  As a senior, Wojta earned second-team All-America honors, placing her among the nation’s 10 best college players.
