On Wednesday afternoon, we were fortune enough to get 30 minutes of time from IU assistant coach Kenya Hunter. He and Jerod cover a number of topics, including:
• Hot yoga?
• The Tweet he sent after Tamar Bates’ commitment
• The enthusiasm around the program
• Tim Miles’ hilarious story about trying to break into Assembly Hall
• His reaction to IU’s players saying they want better relationships and more development
• What was up with the shooting last season? And what’s being done to improve it moving forward.
• The impact of COVID on last season’s team
• His pedigree as a defensive coach, and whether or not that will be his role under Mike Woodson
• The importance of relationships in recruiting
• Which players he expects to take the biggest steps forward with a full summer
It’s a fun conversation, and you get a sense for why many people consider Kenya to be a future high-level head coach.
