Four former basketball stars set to enter ISU Hall of Fame together

TERRE HAUTE — Families, friends, and supporters of Indiana State athletics will gather today as four Indiana State basketball greats will be inducted into 21st class of the Indiana State University Athletics Hall of Fame in ceremonies at the Sycamore Banquet Center in the Hulman Memorial Student Union.

Women’s basketball All-American Melanie Boeglin will be joined by men’s basketball greats Nate Green, Michael Menser, and Matt Renn when the class is inducted which will begin at 7:15 p.m. (ET). A social time will begin the festivities at 6 p.m. with the dinner served at 6:30 p.m.

The four will also be featured in the Indiana State Homecoming parade Saturday morning in downtown Terre Haute and will be introduced during halftime ceremonies at the Indiana State-Missouri State football game which kicks off at 3 p.m. (ET).

Green, Menser, and Renn join 24 former men’s basketball players who have already been inducted into the Indiana State Athletics Hall of Fame.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized as a Hall of Fame inductee,” Menser said. “I am truly proud to be selected with two of my teammates. Coach [Royce] Waltman always says … ‘The team. The team. The team.’ The three of us going in together exemplifies what he was talking about during our four years together.”

Green played for Indiana State from 1996 to 2000 and was the first player to earn Most Valuable Player recognition from the Missouri Valley Conference as a first team member of the All-Conference team while also being the Most Valuable Player as a first team member of the All-Defensive team. He led the 1999-2000 Sycamore team to their first outright Missouri Valley Conference regular season title and the school’s first NCAA tournament bid in 21 years.

ISU lost to Texas 77-61 in the West Region at Salt Lake City, Utah, the same site of the last Sycamore NCAA appearance in 1979.

“In looking back, the first thing that comes to my mind is the process when Coach [Royce] Waltman came in and turned things around,” Green said. “There was a lot of work to turn the program around and it gave me a great sense of accomplishment in that we did just that.”

Renn echoed those sentiments of playing in the NCAA Tournament as the defining moments of his career.

“The top two memories for me was playing in the NCAA Tournament my junior and senior years,” Renn said. “It is one of the few things that live up to expectations. You are excited going in and it lives up to expectations. I have to also say that beating Indiana was another top memory along with winning two Valley titles, the regular season title as a junior and the tournament title as a senior.”

Renn was an All-MVC first team selection in 2001 after being a second team pick in 2000. He was a four-time MVC Men’s Basketball All-Academic team selection and was named a 2001 CoSIDA Academic All-American.

“I absolutely love this league,” Renn said of the Missouri Valley Conference. “The league is made up of good coaches who play the way I like … they prepare and play smart. Year in and year out there is a lot of talent in this league and I was honored to be recognized among these great athletes in the conference.”

Boeglin will become the 10th women’s basketball player at Indiana State to be inducted into the Sycamore Athletics Hall of Fame. She will join Amy Amstutz, Barbara (BJ) Graves, Amy Hile, Maybelle Steeg Lammers, Patricia Porter, and Denise Sharps along with multi-sport athletes Jan Conner, Ann Elizabeth Reifel, and Eleanor Forsythe St. John.

Boeglin was a dominate player for Indiana State from 2002 to 2006 and received numerous national and Missouri Valley Conference honors during her playing career. She was the first athlete in the history of the MVC to win the Jackie Stiles Player of the Year award and the Prairie Farms Women’s Basketball Scholar Athlete of the Year award in the same season, both coming in 2006.

She was also named to several All-American teams in 2006 including honorable mention on the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association/Kodak All-American Team, honorable mention on the Associated Press All-American Team, and third team on The Sporting News All-American Team. She was also named a First Team Academic All-American by ESPN the Magazine and the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA).

Boeglin was the 2005 MVC Defensive Player of the Year and was named to the All-Defensive Team and All-Conference Team all four years at Indiana State. She was also named to the 2003 MVC All-Freshman Team and was selected as the MVC Player of the Week nine times.

During her Sycamore career, Indiana State posted an 88-36 record, won or finished second in the MVC regular season three times, and participated in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament three times.
