The Green Bay Phoenix (17-15, 11-7 CONF) and the Northern Kentucky Norse (21-9, 13-5 CONF) will meet on Monday, March 9th for the Semifinal game of the Horizon League Conference Tournament. The game will be played at a neutral site at Indiana Farmers Coliseum in Indianapolis, IN. The game will be played at 9:30 PM eastern time. 

Green Bay defeated Oakland, 78-63 in their most recent game in the conference tournament, which was the quarterfinals. Green Bay will be quite the test for the defending conference champion Northern Kentucky Norse, who will be playing in their first game of the tournament. Northern Kentucky ended its regular season with a home loss to Wright State, 64-62. Wright State was ahead by a good margin for a large portion of the game, but Northern Kentucky was able to make it close at the end. 

Green Bay scores 82.0 points per game on 46.2 percent field goal shooting this season. Green Bay's leading scorer and rebounder is G JayQan McCloud, who scores 17.2 points per game and earns 5.1 rebounds per game. Green Bay allows 80.1 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a +1.9 scoring differential so far this season. Green Bay also earns 36.3 rebounds, 16.3 assists, 3.2 blocks, and 7.0 steals per game as a team.
