First-year Green Bay head coach Linc Darner like to run and his Phoenix squad (6-4) plays faster than every Division I squad in college basketball not named The Citadel. So controlling pace will be a key in this game. Let's see if Bronson Koenig can go full floor general for Wisconsin (7-5) in this one and usher in interim head coach Greg Gard with a bounce-back win.
