Relaxed Green Bay faces Kentucky in next round

Posted:

 

 AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Outside of the Midwest, not a lot of people know just how good Green Bay is.

   Regionally, the attention paid to the powerhouse Phoenix can be suffocating.

   Green Bay has won a staggering 14 consecutive Horizon League titles. The Phoenix have set the bar so high that anything less than a blowout win in conference play can be seen as a disappointment.

   It's set up a strange scenario where, for seventh-seeded Green Bay, the NCAA tournament is almost a breather.

   The Phoenix certainly looked relaxed in their opener, pounding host Iowa State 71-57 to set up an intriguing second-round matchup against No. 2 seed Kentucky (26-6) on Monday night.
