Former Badger goaltender Freddie Owens earned his first victory as a collegiate head coach on Monday after UW-Green Bay beat UW-Milwaukee 80-79 in overtime. Owens replaced Will Ryan, son of Wisconsin great Bo Ryan, after Ryan was fired Jan. 24.
The win was Green Bay’s third of the season as they have produced an abysmal 3-22 record so far, but it’s a win for the team’s head coach nonetheless.
Owens spent four seasons with the Badgers from 2000 to 2004, appearing in 111 games and starting 61 games during his junior and senior campaigns. Overall, the guard produced a career average of 7.2 points per game and in 2003 had a game-winning three-pointer against Tulsa in the second round of the national tournament.
