SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (BVM) — You don’t always see coaches playing in competitive scrimmages at any level and especially not at the NCAA Division I level. I mean who would be able to keep up with 19 and 20 year olds in their prime. University of Wisconsin assistant men’s basketball coach Joe Krabbenhoft can – even if he is eight years removed from his playing career.

This wouldn’t surprise anyone who knows Krabbenhoft. He was a terrific college basketball player at the University of Wisconsin. He made the All-Big Ten freshman team in 2006. In 2008, he was an integral part of a Badgers team that won both the regular season and Big Ten tournament titles.

To cap off his collegiate career Krabbenhoft was awarded the Big Ten Medal Honor, a prestigious award for a career of excellence both on and off the court. He is the only player from Wisconsin, and only the fifth in the Big Ten, to have at least 750 rebounds and 250 assists.

Krabbenhoft had a short professional career both here in America and overseas in Europe. He even got to play in his hometown with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, then a part of the NBA Development League which is now the G-League.

This year, Krabbenhoft will be rewarded for his incredible prep career. He is an inductee to the South Dakota High School Basketball Hall of Fame.

At Roosevelt High School, Krabbenhoft was named the South Dakota Gatorade Basketball Player of the Year as a senior. Three years straight he received all-city, all-conference and all-state honors. He still holds school records for career rebounds (544), most points in a game (33), and the single-season mark for rebounds (240). The Rough Riders have only had two other players score more points and have more assists than Krabbenhoft who ranks third in school history in both categories.

His induction is well deserved and just gives his players another reason to be worried when he is suiting up for the scout team.
