Off The Court With Men's Basketball

The spring semester officially wrapped up with finals last week, so all is quiet on the UWM campus. That's a good time to catch up on a few off-the-court men's basketball items.

You can read about the latest on-the-court news - two more recruits - on our main site here.

First, above this post is a picture of the Panthers with Tony Dungy, who was in town in late April. As a group, the Panthers attended a speech by Dungy at the Italian Community Center. The Super Bowl-winning coach spoke about leadership and life's lessons.


This past weekend, coach Rob Jeter was part of an excursion to Minneapolis to promote the Milwaukee Fatherhood Excursion. Much of this article is about Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's participation, but you can also learn more about the program. No truth to the rumor Jeter was solicited by Ken Macha to throw a few innings out of the Brewers' bullpen.


Summer camp season is nearly here. The Panther men are offering various camps June 12-29. One of those camps is a high school team shootout June 26, with the event serving a dual purpose. The shootout will also be an opportunity for local officials to hone their skills as part of Referee Boot Camp.

For more information on participating in any of the basketball camps, call the UWM camp office at 414-229-2238.

But, if you are an official, you'll need to make your camp reservations through Referee Boot Camp or by phone at 414-614-3109.
