LSC Roundup 12-21

From Mojo to Missouri, Wagner has been a winner - Nathan Wright, San Angelo Standard Times
Will Wagner knows how and what it takes to win at the Division II level.

That is why he is one of four finalists for the vacant Angelo State University head football coach position.

The Northwest Missouri State associate head coach was the second of four candidates scheduled to interview for the position Monday, following Abilene High head coach Steve Warren, who interviewed on Sunday.

A state champion at Odessa Permian High School and All-American at Hardin-Simmons under former Central High School coach Jimmie Keeling, Wagner has been a winner and coached winners at just about every stop he has made as a player and a leader.

“After I graduated from Hardin-Simmons, I was a graduate assistant there for two years under Jimmie Keeling,” Wagner said. “I was just very fortunate then to go up to Northwest Missouri. I didn’t know anything about them or how good they were. I got there my first year and won a national championship. I thought, ‘Hey, this is pretty easy.’

“We went back-to-back in 1999 and have been full-time since 2000. I have been very successful in all my years of coaching.”

UIW quickly assumes command - Pat Turner, San Antonio Express News
Being in the college basketball business for quite some time, Incarnate Word coach Ken Burmeister knows the best way to go into the holiday break is on a winning note.

When that victory enables a team to maintain a perfect record, it adds a little something extra.

The holidays should be to Burmeister's liking after his No. 21 Cardinals improved to 11-0 with an 86-63 victory over Lone Star Conference North Division foe Southwestern Oklahoma State on Monday night at the McDermott Center.

Tracy Robinson led the Cardinals with 31 points and 11 rebounds. Deleon Hines scored 15 points and Eric Stewart 12.

The Cardinals also were sharp defensively, holding Southwestern (7-6) to 34.9 percent shooting while forcing 24 turnovers, including 15 in the first half.

“We're definitely happy with the record,” Burmeister said. “We're playing good defense. We're shooting the ball well. We have great leadership, especially from (Robinson) and (Stewart). It definitely helps.”
