HEAD COACH BOB SEMLING Bob Semling is in his eighth year as head coach of the UWSP men’s basketball team and has led the Pointers to three NCAA Division III national titles. Through his first seven seasons as head coach, Semling has compiled a 165-41 (90-22 WIAC) record and earned NABC and D3hoops.com Coach of the Year honors in 2010.

CAREER HIGHLIGHS 8th season as head coach at UWSP 191-45 (.809) record with Pointers 2009-10 National Champion WIAC Champion: 2006, 2008, 2010 WIAC Coach of Year: 2007, 2009 D3Hoops.com Coach of Year: 2010

Semling was named the WIAC Coach of the Year on two occasions, the most recent honor coming after the 2008-09 campaign. The Pointers have appeared in the top 10 of the D3hoops.com poll 36 straight times and were in the top 25 for 87 straight polls up until the end of the 2011-12 regular season. The Pointers ranked in the top five 10 of the 14 polls conducted in 2009-10. In addition to the national titles and conference accolades, the Pointers have achieved some amazing statistical feats under Semling. UWSP led NCAA Division III in both free-throw percentage and fewest turnovers per game in two of Semling’s first three seasons. UWSP set an NCAA Division III record in 2006-07 by shooting 82.3 percent from the line. The previous season UWSP set an NCAA record by shooting 79.2 percent from the line. That 2006-07 season UWSP was the only school among 1,187 NCAA and NAIA programs to shoot better than 80.1 percent at the free-throw line. The Pointers also averaged just 10.2 turnovers per game in 2007-08 (third in the nation) and committed just 8.5 turnovers per game the previous season. UWSP had a NCAA Division III best 1.54 assist-to-turnover ratio. Having served as an assistant coach for the Pointers’ back-to-back NCAA Division III championship teams in 2003-04 and 2004-05, Semling took over the reins from Jack Bennett in 2005-06 and guided a relatively fresh group of players back near the top of the WIAC standings with a third-place league finish and 17-10 overall record.

Semling is actually in his second stint with the Pointers’ coaching staff, sandwiching both tenures around eight years at the Division I level. Semling was an assistant coach at UWSP under Bob Parker from 1988-95. During that span the Pointers posted a 127-63 record, including a 27-2 mark in 1991-92. The Pointers won two conference championships in Semling’s first tenure, and the team made two NAIA national tournament appearances. Semling then spent seven seasons as an assistant coach at UW-Green Bay and one year as the Director of Basketball Operations at New Mexico before returning to UWSP for the 2003-04 season. While at UW-Green Bay, Semling helped the Phoenix to a Mid-Continent Conference title and NCAA Tournament appearance in his first season. A Merrill, Wis. native, Semling was a three-year starter at quarterback at UW-Eau Claire from 1977-79. As a student at UWEC, he assisted with Ken Anderson and the men’s basketball team, making NAIA Final Four appearances in each of his final two seasons. Semling then spent one season as an assistant at Park Falls High School and assisted former Pointers’ coach Jack Bennett for two seasons at Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln High School, reaching the state tournament with both schools. Semling was the head coach at Wausau West High School for three seasons from 1985-88, winning backto-back regional championships in his final two seasons prior to coming to UWSP. He and his wife, Kathy, have three children, Jenna, Kreg and Lauryn.


ASST. COACH KENT DERNBACH Dernbach is in his second season as the top assistant coach for the Pointers’ men’s basketball team. Before coming to UWSP Dernbach was the director of basketball operations at Northern Illinois University for three years and spent the two previous seasons at George Mason University. “Kent was the best fit for the profile we had created for this position,” said UWSP Head Coach Bob Semling. “He separated himself from a very strong field of candidates. His experience with Division I and Division III basketball along with admissions experience was something that really stood out.” During Dernbach’s time at George Mason, the Colonials posted back-to-back 20-win seasons, captured the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. GMU’s 2009 recruiting class was tabbed the No. 1 ranked non-BCS class in the nation, and its existing players helped build an APR score that was rated among the top 10 percent in the NCAA Division I ranks. Prior to his tenure at George Mason, Dernbach served a two-year stint as an assistant coach at Marymount University in Arlington, Va., where he was the primary recruiter and helped mentor two all-conference players and two league rookies of the year.

Dernbach was a two-year letterwinner (2001-03) at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wis. The Red Men compiled a 46-8 record with two CCIW (College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin) championships and a berth in the 2002 NCAA Division III Final Four during Dernbach’s career. Following his playing career, Dernbach became an assistant coach at North Central High School in Paddock Lake, Wis. He occupied the same role at Whetstone High School in Columbus, Ohio, during the 2004-05 season. “Having grown up in Central Wisconsin I have seen first-hand the success and tradition of UWSP basketball,” said Dernbach. “I am ecstatic to work alongside Coach Semling who is well-respected across the country and for a program and university that are nationally recognized. I look forward to hitting the ground running to build on the proud tradition of Pointer basketball.” The Almond, Wis., native graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sport management and psychology from Carthage in May 2004 and completed his master’s degree in physical activity and educational services from The Ohio State University in June 2006.

TERRY PORTER

30

Former Pointer Terry Porter enjoyed a stellar 17-year playing career in the NBA after being selected in the first round (No. 24 overall) of the 1985 NBA draft by the Portland Trail Blazers. A two-time NBA all-star, Porter served as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks for two years shortly after retiring as a player. Through 1,274 career games, Porter averaged 12.2 points, 5.6 assists, and 1.24 steals per contest, while shooting 46.3 percent from the field, 38.6 percent from three-point range and 83.6 percent from the free throw line. During his stay in Portland, the Trail Blazers achieved plenty of success, making it to the NBA Finals on two separate occasions (1989-90, 1991-92), in which Porter’s contributions went unmeasured as a starting point guard. Only once in his 17 NBA seasons did his team fail to make the postseason.

(1985-86 through 1994-95).

He averaged 17.7 points and 9.5 assists per game through the 1989-90 season. During the 1991-92 campaign, Porter amassed per game averages of 17.0 points and 8.0 assists. He holds the NBA Finals single-game record for the most free throws made with none missed, hitting all 15 attempts on June 7, 1990 at Detroit. Porter was a recipient of the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award in 1993 as a member of the Trail Blazers. He is Portland’s all-time assists leader with 5,319

Prior to the 1995-96 season, Porter signed as a free agent with the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he spent three seasons. He played for the Miami Heat during the 1998-99 campaign before signing with the Spurs for his final three NBA seasons. Porter was named an NAIA first-team All-American as both a junior and senior at UW-Stevens Point. He averaged 16.7 points, 4.6 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 32.9 minutes, while shooting 60.1 percent from the field over his final three years after averaging just 2.8 points as a freshman.
