Grant McNall joked Saturday that he has decided to get out of coaching college basketball while he is on top.

McNall, the UW-Rock County athletic director, guided the Rattlers basketball team to its third victory Saturday afternoon as the interim head coach.

The Rattlers defeated visiting UW-Fox Valley 93-80 in the UW-Rock County gymnasium. The Rattlers are in first place in the Wisconsin Collegiate Conference West Division with a 10-1 record.

The Rattlers won all three games that McNall coached. McNall had previously coached the UW-Rock County soccer team.

Bill Peyer, who had coached the UW-Rock County women’s team, takes over as the basketball coach Monday.

David Harper scored 28 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and added six assists, a block and a steal in the Rattlers’ win Saturday.

Ernest Cottier, who is coming back from a foot injury, scored 12 points and grabbed five rebounds in limited action. Carlos Jimenez added 10 points off the bench.

Ten of the 11 Rattlers scored in the victory.

The Rattlers travel to UW-Richland Center for a game Wednesday.
