WEIBERG POSTS 100 CAREER WINS
With the Northern Oklahoma College Mavericks’ 59-55 victory over the Cowley County Community College Tigers Nov. 5 at Arkansas City, Head Men’s Basketball Coach Brett Weiberg posted his 100th career win.
NOC celebrated his career milestone Nov. 7 with the presentation of a trophy between the women’s and men’s games in Foster-Piper Fieldhouse and a reception in the Harrison Hospitality Room. Game announcer Dean Pearcy read a tribute to Weiberg and NOC President Dr. Cheryl Evans presented the trophy, topped with a crystal basketball and engraved “Brett Weiberg NOC Mavericks 100 Wins 2012”., In honor of the occasion, the president, the cheer team and the Maverick mascot wore blue t-shirts imprinted “B. Weiberg 100 Wins 2012” on the back.
Weiberg began his NOC coaching career in Fall 2001 as assistant to his father, Mavericks Head Men’s Basketball Coach Mick Weiberg. He succeeded to the head coaching position following his father’s retirement in 2006.
Although building a winning team is one of his top priorities, Coach Weiberg emphasizes education first. He has a personal interest in each of his players and works to help them experience success in all aspects of their college careers. He strives to help them become men of character who will build a better world.
He takes pride in recruiting good athletes who want to work hard and graduate, and more than 80 percent of his Mavericks earn their associate degrees. In fact, most of his players continue their education at major universities.
Former Mavericks are currently attending such prominent institutions as the University of Central Oklahoma, Mississippi Valley State University, Dallas Baptist University, Newman University in Kansas, Southwest Baptist University in Missouri and Lynn University in Florida.
Several of his former players continued to play at the university level at Oral Roberts University, Oklahoma Christian University, University of New Hampshire, John Brown University in Arkansas, Weber State University in Utah and Pacific University in Oregon before building successful careers in various business and academic fields.
