Get To Know A Marquette Basketball Opponent: Green Bay Phoenix

Name: University of Wisconsin-Green Bay

Location: Green Bay, Wisconsin, duh

Founded: Back in the day, the University of Wisconsin system had an Extension brand. The Green Bay freshman/sophomore campus started growing so large that demand for a full four-year campus in the northeast part of the state started growing. Instead of starting and building a brand new university, the state government moved forward with promoting the Green Bay extension to full four-year status. The law granting that status was signed in September of 1965, and UW-Green Bay became a real thing in the fall of 1968.
