As a former player, I use those experiences to aid players in dealing with the challenges of a yearlong season of basketball on and off the court.

  • WIAC Hoops

    As a player, I was on several conference championship teams in high school and college and participated in the Wisconsin State High School Tournament. In college, I also competed in the NAIA and NCAA Final Four Championships. These were truly valuable experiences and a big part of how I coach today.

    The Wisconsin State University Conference, WSUC or now WIAC has produced high caliber players, like Terry Porter (former NBA player and current NBA Coach).

    Most of the Conference Championships and National Championships in the WSUC/WIAC have come from talented coaches, like Dick Bennett (Wisconsin, Washington State) and Jack Bennett (Wisconsin - Stevens Point), Bo Ryan (Wisconsin).
