The Green Bay Phoenix women were less than a minute away from advancing in the Women's National Invitation Tournament. Playing inspired against the Big Ten's Minnesota Gophers, Green Bay led by 10 at the half and were up five points with only :50 to play. That's when Minnesota's all time leading scorer took over. Rachel Banham drained a long three point shot to close the gap and after a Phoenix miss, she did it again. Her second three put the Gophers in front with :11 left. Sam Terry's shot for the win was deflected out of bounds with only a second to play and after a foul, Minnesota made one more free throw for the 62-60 final margin. Banham finished with a game high 31 points. Green Bay was led by Tesha Buck with 18, Kaili Lukan added 15. The Phoenix have yet to win a WNIT first round game in five tries, all of which have come on the road. Green Bay finishes the season with a 22-10 record.
