Menser honored at Indiana State University


“Bottom line was that we just wanted to win,” Menser said.

Menser was named to the MVC All-Newcomer Team in 1998, was named to the 2000 Honorable Mention All-MVC team, and was named to the All-MVC second team in 2001. He was also a three-time selection to the MVC Men’s Basketball All-Academic team three straight years.

He was named the Most Outstanding Player of the MVC Tournament in 2001 after averaging 21.0 points and 6.3 assists over the Sycamores three-game championship run. He also led the nation in assist/turnover ratio as a senior (184/46, 4:1) and recording nine turnover-less games during the season.

He holds the school record in career three point field goals made (283) and career three point field goals attempted (727) while also holding the top spot in three point field goals made in a season (92 in 2000-2001) and three point field goals attempted in a season (239 in 2000-2001). Menser also finished his career fourth in steals (188) and fifth in assists (184).

Green, Menser, and Renn join 24 former men’s basketball players who have already been inducted into the Indiana State Athletics Hall of Fame. Those include Bob Barker, Larry Bird, Ward Brown, Jerry Newsom, Carl Nicks, George Pillow, Sam Richardson, Charles E. (Butch) Wade, and John Sherman Williams along with multi-sport athletes Dick Atha, Birch Evans Bayh, Roy Burris, Charles A. (Cocky) Bush, Jim Carr, George Chestnut, Ray Goddard, Duane M. Klueh, Dr. John Miklozek, Lenny Rzeszewski, Howard L. Sharpe, Raymond Sparks, Fred Wampler, Paul (Billy) Williams, and Paul Wolf.

John Sherman, senior assistant athletics director at Indiana State, served as Master of Ceremonies for the induction ceremony which was held at the Sycamore Banquet Center in the Hulman Memorial Student Union. Dr. Daniel J. Bradley, president of Indiana State, welcomed the inductees, their family and friends, and past inductees to the ceremony with Dan Doan, Region CEO for Old National Bank, also extending congratulatory remarks.

Ron Prettyman, Director of Athletics at Indiana State, closed out the evening with his concluding remarks which included a note that Boeglin is the first Hall of Fame inductee that played during his time at Indiana State.
