Berkoff gets nod to lead UW-River Falls men's BBall

The interim men's basketball coach at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls has been given the job permanently.

Jeff Berkoff was an assistant for 12 years before moving up to the top spot a year ago.

He went 5-11 in the WIAC and 10-16 overall, but he had no seniors on his roster and athletic director Rick Bowen said he prepared himself well for the challenge ahead.

The Falcons had six close losses last year, including two by one point. Forward Nate Robertson was picked to the national all-freshman team.
