Noon nets 200th coaching victory
MILWAUKEE - Edward "Skip" Noon, athletic director and men's basketball head coach at Wisconsin Lutheran College, collected his 200th career coaching victory as the Warriors trounced host Rockford College 83-53 at Seaver Gym Saturday, February 3.
The milestone win marked the third consecutive victory for the Warriors, who improved to sixth place in the new 12-team Northern Athletics Conference with an 8-6 record, 11-10 overall. They have four regular season games remaining before the NAC Tournament, starting tonight with a 7 p.m. contest at Concordia University. You can listen to the game on AM 540 WRRD.
In 15 years as a collegiate head coach - all at WLC - Noon's coaching record stands at 200-196 (.505). In that span, Noon has directed the Warriors to six Lake Michigan Conference regular season titles and three conference tournament championships. Last season, he led the Warriors to their first NCAA Tournament appearance. Five times (1996-99, 2002) Noon has been named conference coach of the year.
"I'm humbled by the opportunity that Wisconsin Lutheran College has given to me," says Noon. "I'm blessed that my ministry has involved coaching basketball. I have great memories of the teams and the individuals who all have contributed to this milestone."
