GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Packers couldn't quite pull off an undefeated season.

Another team from Green Bay still has a shot.

The Wisconsin-Green Bay women's basketball team is 19-0 going into Saturday's game against Wisconsin-Milwaukee. And after last year's surprising second-round victory over Michigan State in the NCAA tournament, people are starting to notice.

Green Bay made its first appearance in the top 10 this week, coming in at No. 10.

Coach Matt Bollant acknowledges that his team doesn't have the talent or recruiting budget of traditional women's basketball powerhouses. Per dollar, he says, "we're the best program in the country."
