Pratt Community College Head Men’s Basketball Coach Jesse Shaw is among those being honored for his athletic achievements by Northwest Missouri State University, where he played as a student. His 2003-2004 team will be inducted into the university’s M-Club Hall of Fame this October, along with former student-athletes, coaches and other title-holding teams.
Shaw's team that started their season 13-0, reached a number one national ranking for the first time in school history, finished the season 29-5, won the MIAA tournament and advanced to NCAA Division II Elite Eight.
