By Adam Roberts – 3/10/2021

UWL seniors Ethan Anderson and Wyatt Cook each were named to the All-WIAC First Team for their exploits this season, with Cook earning the coveted title of WIAC Player of the Year. In addition, head coach Kent Dernbach was named the conference’s Coach of the Year.

Cook started all but one game the Eagles played this season/postseason and led the team in rebounds, field goal shooting, three-point shooting, and blocks. He also was a Top-10 finisher in nine different WIAC statistical categories. Anderson made the All-WIAC First Team for the second straight season, with the Black River Falls product starting every game and leading the team in scoring and free throw percentage.

Dernbach is now 59-32 in four seasons as UWL’s head coach, and has consistently kept the Eagles in the national polls, finishing as high as 14th in the nation this year.
