Last week Upper Iowa University announced that head men’s basketball coach Brian Dolan had resigned to go to NSIC rival Wayne State.

Tuesday, July 30, the university announced it has hired former NSIC rival SW Minnesota State assistant coach Brooks McKowen as the new head coach.

McKowen is the son of Wapsie Valley athletic director and boys’ basketball coach Marty McKowen. 

Brooks is the all-time leading scorer in Iowa boy’s basketball history with 2831 points in 2000-2003. The runner-up is Cary Cochran of Tri Center (Neola) with 2650.

Local basketball fans may remember that McKowen set the all-time record in West Union on a little put-back in Wapsie Valley’s game against North Fayette.
