GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC 26) — Kevin Borseth is on the verge of another milestone.

After earning his 800th career NCAA win earlier this season, the longtime UW-Green Bay women's basketball coach is now just one win shy of his 500th win as a Phoenix.

Borseth was unaware he's knocking on the door of another big number. He said he's more focused on getting his team back on track after a 23-point defeat to arch-rival Cleveland State last weekend.

  • The Phoenix lost to the Vikings 86-63, just their second Horizon League loss of the season.
  • Green Bay is now 10-2 in conference play, a half game back of Cleveland State in the standings.
  • The Phoenix won the regular season conference title last season, but CSU knocked Green Bay out in the Horizon League championship, keeping them out of the NCAA Tournament.
  • Borseth, who has coached the Phoenix to 12 NCAA Tournaments in his two stints at Green Bay, called this year's squad "as good a team as I've ever coached in my career."
  • The Phoenix host Northern Kentucky at the Kress Center Thursday night. Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m.
