Now introducing your starting lineup for the top reasons to go to a University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Men’s home basketball game.
1. Ranked in the Top 25 Men’s Basketball team in the country
The UWO men’s team has been on a hot streak this season. In 2019, the Titans earned their first national title in school history. This year Titans have scored 70.1 points per game with opponents scoring only 59.5 points, which ranks 10th in the nation.

4. UWO Players love Oshkosh
We had the opportunity to chat with Reed Seckar, a freshman at UW Oshkosh! "I think what I love most about Oshkosh is the people. Living here my entire life, I’ve been able to create a lot of relationships with different people in Oshkosh" Reed shared. He chose UWO based off the basketball program but also the connection he felt with the players and coaches.
"Ever since my first visit at UWO, I always felt very welcomed. It has also been very nice to be so close to home while also being a part of a high level program" Reed says.
5. UWO Head Coach loves Oshkosh
We spoke with Head Coach Matt Lewis who shared why he wants YOU to attend the UWO Men's basketball games! "Throughout the last few years, our players have invested so much in this team. When they play, they demonstrate that passion on the court and on the bench. Our team is an exciting team to watch because of the energy, enthusiasm, and competitiveness that they play with every night."
Although Coach Lewis may not be from Oshkosh, or have gone to college here, he shares that the people make UWO and the city of Oshkosh so special as if he did grow up here.
