GREEN BAY, Wis. -- After watching his team hold off No. 11 Butler for one of the biggest victories in school history, the first thing Wisconsin-Green Bay coach Tod Kowalczyk told his players was to get on the court and celebrate with a small but enthusiastic swarm of students.And with good reason -- Monday's 75-66 victory was the third victory over a ranked team in school history.But that doesn't mean Kowalczyk is content with taking down a Horizon League heavyweight. Monday's victory was the biggest step yet in what is shaping up as a surprising season, but Green Bay has bigger goals in mind.
• Green Bay improved to 2-6 all-time in home games vs. ranked opponents and 3-27 all-time vs. Top 25 opponents.
• Butler's nine-game winning streak against Green Bay ended.
• Butler had won 10 straight conference road games and 21 straight Horizon League games.
