Pointer Tradition UW-Stevens Point reached the pinncale of NCAA Division III basketball with consecutive national championships in 2004 and 2005, though the Pointers’ tradition extends much deeper than its two championship trophies. UW-Stevens Point has claimed 24 Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championships, which is the most of any school in one of the nation’s most storied small-college basketball leagues. The Pointers also made seven trips to the NAIA national tournament in Kansas City, finishing runner-up in 1984. Their 17-4 NCAA tournament record is also the best postseason winning percentage of any Division III school. Two of those losses came in the sectional final on three-pointers at the buzzer that stopped the team one game short of the final four. UW-Stevens Point used dramatics of its own for its first national title as Jason Kalsow drained a jumper in the final seconds to beat Williams (Mass.) 84-82 in 2004. Along the way, Eric Maus hit a jumper to send the Pointers to the final four in a an 82-81 overtime win over Lawrence in the sectional final.

UW-STEVENS POINT beat Williams (Mass.) 84-82 for its first national championship in 2003-04 (above) and then followed with a 73-49 win over Rochester (N.Y.) in 2004-05 to become the third school to post back-to-back NCAA Division III titles. Both games were played in Salem, Va.

No last-second heroics were needed the following year as the Pointers used a dominating second half to dismantle Rochester (N.Y.) 73-49 in the largest victory margin in a championship game. Overall, the Pointers outscored their five NCAA tournament opponents in 2004-05 by a tournament record 21.0 points per game. UW-Stevens Point finished 29-3 and won 26 by double figures in that dominating season. In addition to the all the team success has come plenty of individual accolades. The most well-known former Pointer is Terry Porter, who was a first round draft choice by the Portland Trail Blazers in 1985, spent 17 years in the NBA and later coached the Milwaukee Bucks and is now the coach of the Phoenix Suns. Tim Naegeli was a four-time all-conference selection and a sixthround draft choice of the Boston Celtics in 1987, while Jon Julius was a conference player of the year as the Pointers won another conference title in 1992. Brant Bailey was a first-team All-American and conference player of the year before competing professionally in Europe after ending his playing career in 2000. Most recently, Kalsow was a two-time first-team All-American and was the national player of the year in 2005, while Nick Bennett was also an All-American that same season. Kalsow finished his career as the school’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder while starting every game for four seasons. Former head coach Jack Bennett won 200 games and led the Pointers to both national titles in just nine seasons. His brother, Dick, won 173 games during his career from 1976-85 and followed legendary coaches Bob Krueger, Hale Quandt and Eddie Kotal. Bob Parker arrived in 1987 and won 158 games and two conference titles in an eight-year career. Off the court, the Pointers boast one of the best fan bases in Division III basketball, ranking in the top 11 nationally in attendance for nine consecutive seasons. UW-Stevens Point ranked sixth in the country in attendance during the 2007-08 season, averaging 1,350 fans per game. 19

The WIAC A charter member of the conference, UW-Stevens Point began its 98th season as a league member in the fall of 2009. The conference, then known as the State Normal Conference, was organized in July 1913 with Stevens Point, Superior, River Falls and La Crosse in its Northern Division, and Oshkosh, Whitewater, Milwaukee and Platteville in the Southern Division. From the original membership of eight, the conference increased to 10 schools. Stout Institute, now UW-Stout, joined in 1914 and the first record of membership of the then Eau Claire Normal was in 1917. These two, along with the original eight, maintained continuous membership over the years until June 1964, at which time UW-Milwaukee terminated its membership in the conference, leaving the league at its current total of nine members. The conference, later known as the Wisconsin State University Conference, sponsored only men’s sports and existed simultaneously with the Wisconsin Women’s Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The WWIAC was officially organized in the spring of 1971. The original membership consisted of 12 schools (the nine current members plus Carthage College, UW-Madison and UW-Parkside) and grew to its maximum of 16 by 1975 with the addition of UW-Milwaukee, Carroll College, UW-Green Bay and Marquette University. All members were at one time affiliated with the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women, and the Midwest Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. On July 1, 1997, the nine members of the former Wisconsin State University Conference and the Wisconsin Women’s Intercollegiate Athletic Conference were joined together to form a single conference - The Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

Former Pointer Terry Porter After enjoying a stellar 17-year career in the NBA, former UW-Stevens Point star Terry Porter recently retired from the league as a player and, just two years later, spent two seasons as the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. Porter also spent two seasons as an assistant coach with the Detroit Pistons and spent 51 games as the head coach of the Phoenix Suns during the 2008-09 season. A two-time NBA all-star, Porter spent his last three playing seasons as a member of the San Antonio Spurs. 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 threepoint range and 83.6 percent from the free throw line. Selected in the first round (No. 24 overall) of the 1985 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers, Porter, a 6-3, 205-pound guard, played 10 seasons in Portland. During his stay, 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. 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 alltime assists leader with 5,319 (1985-86 through 1994-95). 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. In 1984, he helped lead the Pointers to a runner-up finish at the NAIA national tournament. Throughout his career, Porter has been active with the Boys and Girls Club and is a member of the organization’s Hall of Fame. In 1994, he created the Milwaukee Scholars Fund, which provides scholarships to minority students in Milwaukee to attend schools in the University of Wisconsin system. Porter and his wife, Susie, have three children, Brianna, Franklin, and Malcolm. He earned a bachelor’s degree in communications from UW-Stevens Point.

On February 7, 2009 the floor in Quandt Fieldhouse was named after former Pointer coaches Dick and Jack Bennett. Dick Bennett started his college coaching career at UW-Stevens Point in 1976 and spent nine seasons at the helm of the Pointer men’s basketball team, compiling 173 wins. In his final three seasons (1982-85), he guided the team to a 79-13 record. He was named NAIA Coach of the Year after the 1983-84 season, leading the team to a 22-3 mark and a national runner-up finish. Dick went on to take UW-Green Bay to two NCAA Division I tournament appearances and led UW-Madison to an NCAA Final Four appearance in 2000. Jack Bennett’s coaching career spanned 34 years throughout Wisconsin high school and collegiate basketball. Bennett coached seven years at Rhinelander High School prior to replacing Bob Parker at UW-Stevens Point in 1996-97. In nine seasons at UW-Stevens Point, he led the Pointers to five Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles, five NCAA tournament appearances and two national championships en route to becoming the school’s all-time winningest coach with a 200-56 record. 29
