Feb. 27, 2009

GREELEY, Colo. - Gonzaga University men's basketball director of operations Jerry Krause will be among those honored at the University of Northern Colorado Athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremonies Friday night.

Krause was an assistant coach on the 1965-66 Bears basketball team that will join the UNC Athletic Hall of Fame at the 15th induction ceremony that also includes the 1992 women's tennis team and 12 individuals.

Krause, who was an assistant coach for three years, received his master's degree in 1965 and his doctorate degree in 1967 from Northern Colorado. In 2001 he was honored by UNC with an Alumni Achievement award for Contribution to Sport. The award is for alumni who have excelled in mentorship or role modeling while working with students in sports.

The 1965-66 Bears squad posted a 21-5 overall record and an 11-1 mark in Rocky Mountain Conference play en route to the league title. UNC, under the direction of head coach George Sage, received a berth to the NCAA Small College Regional Tournament for a third straight season.

The team topped the 100-point scoring mark in six games and entered the NCAA Tournament on an 11-game winning streak. Both Dennis Colson and Don Meyer were named All-American after the conclusion of the season and six players averaged in double figures in scoring. The 21 wins also set the program record for most wins, a number that still ranks second today.
