Jeter named to WIAC Hall of Fame


University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee head men's basketball coach Rob Jeter has been named to the inaugural class of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Hall of Fame.

Jeter was a member of UW-Platteville's men's basketball team from 1988-91 and led the squad to the 1991 NCAA Division III national title, including selection to the 1991 All-Final Four team. He was an All-WSUC first team selection in 1990 and 1991 after earning honorable mention status in 1989.

Jeter also served as an assistant coach on the Pioneer men's basketball team from 1995-98 and helped guide the squad to a 108-6 overall record, two NCAA Division III championships and four WSUC first-place finishes.

The first class is being announced to coincide with the conference's celebration of its 100th anniversary, which will take place during the 2012-13 academic year. The 30-member class will be inducted as part of the WIAC Centennial Celebration Banquet to be held on Aug. 4 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.

Former UWM men's basketball coach Bo Ryan, who won four NCAA Division III championships at UW-Platteville, is also a part of the inaugural class.
