The UW-Green Bay men's basketball team returned to a heroes' welcome home Wednesday evening. Fans gathered on campus and clapped as the players got off the bus from Detroit with their trophy in hand.

The Phoenix beat Wright State Tuesday night to clinch a spot in the NCAA tournament. It's their first trip to the big dance in 20 years. With Spring Break next week, many students are considering traveling to cheer on the team, but they won't know where they're playing the first round game or who they're facing until this Sunday.
