One of the most prolific big men in the North Central Conference during his standout career, Regnier played for current NDSU associate AD, Bison Hall of Fame member and former head men's basketball coach Erv Inniger.

He was a first-team All-NCC pick in 1986, 1987 and 1989 as a freshman, sophomore and senior in addition to winning the NCC Stan Marshall Male Student-Athlete of the Year award in 1988-89.  Selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-America first team in 1989, he also received an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship that year and was a three-time Academic All-NCC pick overall.

Named NDSU team captain for an unprecedented three seasons, he was a four-year starter for the Bison, setting school career records for points (1,717), rebounds (872) and blocked shots (146).  The rebound mark has held up, and he's still No. 2 in career points and blocked shots.

Regnier averaged 15.3 points over 112 career games.  His top season was the 19.3 points per game his senior year.

He played professional basketball in Australia for three different teams over seven years and was a member of two championship teams while in Australia.  Regnier also played pro basketball in Malaysia for a season, claiming the inaugural Malaysian Basketball Championship in 1995, and coached professionally in Sydney, Australia, for two years.

He is working in sales for Lucent Technologies and is currently a senior sales manager residing in San Antonio, Texas, with his wife, Sharon, and two children, Michael and Andrew.
