William J. "Bill" Kinner was an American basketball player who starred at the University of Utah in the 1930s. He was a 6 ft 3 in center who played between 1931–32 and 1935–36. Kinner was selected to the All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference all four seasons, and he scored over 1,000 career points for the Utes. As a junior in 1934–35, Converse named him to their All-America Third Team, and as a senior the following year, Kinner was voted as a consensus All-American. In 1997, Kinner was inducted into the University of Utah Athletics Hall of Fame. Then in 2008, fans voted him as one of the best 16 players in school history, which honored him as part of Utah's "All-Century" team.
