Tesha accepted a basketball scholarship to Wisconsin-Green Bay. One day last summer, she showed up back in Red Wing. Like her father 22 years earlier, she was homesick and ready to bail on her basketball opportunity.

“I was out of town with Tyrell for baseball,” Richard said. “When I got back, I told Tesha, ‘You can come back to Red Wing if you want to, but I’ve regretted making that decision — giving up basketball — my whole life.’

“Tesha went back to Green Bay; she’s having a great time there.”

On Wednesday night, freshman Tesha Buck led Green Bay with 18 points in a last-second, 62-60 loss to the Gophers at Williams Arena, where the Phoenix was playing the Gophers in the first round of the WNIT. And Richard Buck was looking on as a proud and involved father.
