MILWAUKEE (WLCSports.com) – Wisconsin Lutheran College will honor its former head men's basketball coach Skip Noon during halftime of Saturday's 2:00 p.m. Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference game between the host Warriors and visiting Dominican University.
In his 25 seasons (1992-2017) as head men's basketball coach, Noon collected 318 career coaching victories and led Wisconsin Lutheran to a 206-176 record in conference games. The second-longest tenured coach in the state of Wisconsin, Noon won more games than any coach in program history and ranked third among winningest active coaches in the NACC at the time of his retirement from coaching. Noon still serves as Wisconsin Lutheran's Director of Athletics, a position he has held since 1998.
A five-time conference Coach of the Year, Noon led the Warriors to six conference championships, two NAIA Tournament appearances (1996, 1997), and the program's first NCAA Tournament appearance (2006). Thirteen of WLC's 20 1,000-point scorers played under Noon. He has also mentored two All-Americans, seven conference Players of the Year, and 71 all-conference performers. Seven of Noon's former players are also enshrined into WLC's Athletics Hall of Fame.
