Panthers Pitch-In With Empty Bowls

Photo Gallery

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee women’s volleyball team helped out with the Milwaukee Empty Bowls project recently.

The Panthers helped design bowls that will be sold at a fundraiser as part of the efforts to assist hunger programs in the Milwaukee area.

Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort to raise money and awareness in the fight to end hunger and food insecurity. Each group that participates in the Empty Bowls project works with their community to create their own event.

Milwaukee Empty Bowls started in 1999 with the same concept - to raise funds for food and hunger programs here in Milwaukee. Milwaukee Empty Bowls has a special fundraising event set for Oct. 9, with the event benefitting the Agape Community Center, The Cathedral Center, Friedens Community Ministries, Inc., Milwaukee Christian Center, The Gathering and Repairers of the Breach.

At the event on Oct. 9, attendees will get to select from over 2,000 original handcrafted bowls and sample soups and breads from over 50 local chefs. Proceeds from a donation ($20 minimum per bowl including the Grab Bag Express, four bowl limit per person and $10 Kids' Bowls, no limit) will benefit food pantries and meal programs in the greater Milwaukee area. The Grab Bag Express allows you to enter "fast track" line in which you can purchase a bowl that has been pre-selected for you. The bowls are to be taken home as a reminder that someone's bowl is always empty.

An Early Look At Horizon League TV Games

Here is the press release the Horizon League issued Friday regarding its ESPN games and the HLN Game of the Week package.

UWM will be on at least five times, it appears. Those games are the home contests with Butler, Loyola, Detroit and Green Bay along with the road game at Valpo. We'll probably set the Time Warner schedule over the next month.

Thirty-five Horizon League men’s basketball games, including twenty-four regular-season conference games, comprise the 2010-11 schedule to be telecast nationally and regionally, the League announced Friday (Sept. 3). All ten League teams will make an appearance on the ESPN family of networks.

Highlighting the package is the rematch of the 2010 NCAA championship game between Butler and Duke. ESPN will carry that game from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J., on Dec. 4. Butler, the defending League champion and national runner-up, also will be featured against Stanford on Dec. 18. CBS will telecast that game from Hinkle Fieldhouse.

ESPN also will air Butler road games at Louisville on Nov. 16 and at Xavier on Dec. 9.

Highlighting League games will be Detroit’s visit to Butler on Feb. 12. ESPN2 will carry the game that pits the Bulldogs against Coach Ray McCallum and his son and incoming freshman, McDonald’s All-American Ray McCallum.

The McCallums also will be featured in another unique game at Central Michigan where Coach Ernie Zeigler welcomes his son, Trey, onto the roster. ESPNU will air that game on Dec. 18.

Also featured will be Wright State’s season-opening game at Indiana that will air on ESPNU on Nov. 14 and Purdue at Valparaiso that will air on ESPNU on Dec. 7.

ESPN2 and ESPNU will also air two wildcard games on Sat. Feb. 5. ESPN will select which two games to air in mid-January and will decide which game will air on ESPN2 and which game will air on ESPNU.

The Horizon League Network schedule of eight games begins Jan. 8 with Detroit’s visit to UIC and will feature each of the 10 League schools at least once during the season.

“We are delighted with the amount of national and regional exposure Horizon League teams will receive through these various platforms,” said Commissioner Jon LeCrone. “We anticipate we will have a highly competitive League this year. This is a great opportunity for our student-athletes, men’s basketball programs, and our fans.”

The League’s ESPNU and schedule will tip-off with four Friday night double-headers starting with Cleveland State at Butler and Youngstown State at Valparaiso on Jan. 7. Butler at Detroit and Valparaiso at Wright State will be aired on Jan. 14; followed by Green Bay at Butler and Milwaukee at Valparaiso on Jan. 21. Detroit at Milwaukee and Wright State at Green Bay will close out the Friday night wildcard games on Jan. 28. ESPN will decide two weeks out which game will air on ESPNU and which one will air on

Rounding out ESPNU’s regular season coverage is Wright State at Butler on Thursday Feb. 10 and Detroit at Wright State on Friday, Feb. 25. will also air the following additional games: Butler at Milwaukee on Monday, Jan. 3, Butler at Green Bay on Tuesday, Feb. 15, and Loyola at UIC Wednesday, Feb. 16.

ESPNU will air the Horizon League Men’s Basketball Championship semifinals Saturday, March 5, and the Women’s Basketball Championship Sunday, March 13. The Men’s Basketball Championship remains in its usual spot on Tuesday, March 8 at 9 p.m. on ESPN. All games on ESPN and ESPN2 also will be simulcast on

The League’s HLN Game of the Week schedule includes: Detroit at UIC on Jan. 8, Loyola at Milwaukee on Jan. 15, Wright State at Cleveland State on Jan. 22 and Butler at Valparaiso on Jan. 29. The ESPN wildcard game scheduled for Feb. 5 will determine whether Loyola at Detroit or Green Bay at Milwaukee will be aired on HLN. Continuing in February is Youngstown State at Cleveland State on the 12th, Butler at UIC on the 19th and Green Bay at Cleveland State on the 26th. HLN games will be aired at 2:00 p.m. ET in each of the Horizon League’s local markets.

Jeter Honors Father At Iowa Football Game This Weekend

University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men’s basketball coach Rob Jeter will pay tribute to his late father by serving as an honorary captain for the University of Iowa football team in its season opener Saturday.

Rob Jeter will accompany the Iowa captains to the center of the field for the pregame coin-flip, then will be with the Hawkeyes in the locker room before and after the game as well as on the sidelines during the contest.

All-Big Ten Iowa halfback Bob Jeter lettered three times (1957-59) and played on two Rose Bowl teams at Iowa. He was named outstanding player in the 1959 Rose Bowl and set three Rose Bowl records in Iowa's 38-12 win over California, rushing for 194 yards while scampering 81 yards for a touchdown in that game.

Bob Jeter went on to an all-pro career with the Green Packers and Chicago Bears. After being drafted by the Packers in the 1960 NFL draft, he went on to play 11 years as an NFL cornerback. He won three NFL Championship rings with the Packers and is a member of the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame.

Bob Jeter passed away in November of 2008.

The Hawkeyes face Eastern Illinois in an 11 a.m. contest at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.
